Andy Schleck

Andy is the younger brother of top-ten finisher and teammate Fränk Schleck. He finished second during a breakout performance at the 2007 Giro, at 21, and claimed the jersey for best young rider (under 25) en route to 12th place at last year's Tour. In April, he won the prestigious Liège-Bastogne-Liège one-day classic. This year, he'll lead the powerful squad that put Carlos Sastre in yellow last year.
