- Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) won the Elite Men's event in 2009. He is not back to defend.
- The Grand Prix des Nations Time Trial was first run in 1932. I photographed the last two editions (2003, 2004) of the event which was organized by TDF organizer A.S.O. The Chrono des Herbiers was renamed the Chrono des Nations a couple of years ago, effectively merging the two events, though this is no longer an A.S.O. event. Five-time TDF winner Jacques Anquetil holds the record of victories (in the GP des Nations): 9 victories in 9 participations! -Pete
