Any news of which teams will be riding the TTT?
Not really, no.
All I can give you is this link to this document that's a.o. listing the invited/qualified teams[1], and specifying that teams need to confirm their participation by 22 August (so almost two weeks ago).
Oh, and on top of that, teams from the organising nation may enter whether they're qualified or not, plus up to 10 wildcards may be given to non-qualified teams who file a participation request.

By the way, nations also had to confirm the quota for the men's RR (albeit by 31 August), with non-confirmed places being redistributed.

It would be great to see a list of which nations will actually participate, and with how many riders (and which teams will actually go for the TTT) - but hey, this is only the pinnacle event of our sport, so who really cares. :fp
 1. the difference between invited & qualified teams being that the invited teams (WT + six best PCTs) get a participation allowance while the rest have to pay their own way
