L'Equipe says van Aert will be racing but #jumbo says they won't?  I am a bit confused now! Help me clear this up:

Teams particpating + key riders announced
1. #ag2r Ag2r: Bardet, Naesen
2. #bahrain Bahrain-McLaren:
3. #bora Bora-Hansgrohe: Ackerman, Sagan, Konrad
4. #cofidis Cofidis:  Viviani, Martin
5. #quickstep Decuninck-Quickstep: Alaphilippe, Bennet
6. #ef Education First pro cycling: Higuita, Cort
7. #groupama Groupama-FDJ: Pinot, Noir
8. #israel Israel Start-up Nation: Politt, Hofstetter
9. #lotto Lotto Soudal: Ewan, Gilbert
10. #movistar Movistar team:
11. #ntt NTT Pro cycling team: Valgren
12. #arkea Arkea-Samsic: Quintana, Barguil
13. #jumbo Jumbo-Visma: Roglic/Kruijswick/Bennett, Van Aert
14. #sunweb Team Sunweb: Bool[1]
15. #total Total-Direct Energie: Calmejane, Terpstra
16. #trek Trek-Segafredo: Porte, Pederesen
17. #nippo Nippo-Delko-Provence
18. #vital B&B hotels - Vital concept: riders TBA
19. #wanty Circus-Wanty Gobert: riders TBA

Teams that have announced they will not be participating
1. #jumbo  Jumbo-Visma, but they will also participate... (?????!!!?)
2. #astana Astana
3. #ineos Ineos
4. #uae UAE
5. #movistar Movistar, but they will also participate... (?????!!!?)(???)

Summing this up, it seems we will be missing some of the usual suspects (#ineos, #uae, +/- #movistar) but there are some unusual additions with a strong team announced here like #bora Sagan/Ackerman,  #arkea Quintana, and possibly the complete A-list for #jumbo?

I guess it looks like a decent race after all for now - not sure if it is a good idea to have #jumbo there as they look disproportionately strong for the GC competition walkover or walkoviak!
