Men’s American Cup roster

According to the Los Angeles Times, those who will compete in Chicago in February are:

Fabian Hambuchen (Germany)
Benoit Caranobe (France)
Luis Riviera (Puerto Rico)
Flavius Koczi (Romania)
Yury Ryazanov (Russia)
Jose Luis Fuentes (Venezula)
Joey Hagerty (USA)
David Sender (USA)

Given the Hambuchen factor (and the Caranobe factor, if he isn’t too rusty) this is not a competition that’s stacked for the Americans.

2008 U.S. Champion Sender, who contemplated retirement after being denied a spot on the U.S. Olympic team after spraining his ankle right before the Olympic Trials, should also be interesting to watch.
