My mate Simon Gerrans has been dropped from the Cervelo Test Team and the tour de france.
Something is rotten in denmark (or france).
Simon last year won a breakaway stage in the tour and another stage win in this years Giro de italia. He is probably in the best form of his life.
CTT includes rider of the calibre of Carlos Sastre and Thor Hushovd but seem to have opted for journeymen Spanish riders to support Sastre in the mountains.
I believe Gerrans should have made the CTT squad ahead of a couple of other riders and felt his former charge could have landed a job on another team.
"I know that there are other people that would love to have him on their team including [Australia's 2007 and 2008 Tour de France runner-up] Cadel Evans just from personal conversations,".
Other Australians in the CTT team include Heinrich Haussler (German born but raised in Aust) and Brett Lancaster another local North East Victorian lad riding his first tour.
