Team Sky have announced the line-up of nine riders who will compete at the team’s debut Tour de France, starting on 3 July in Rotterdam.
Bradley Wiggins, who came fourth in last year’s Tour de France to equal the best-ever finish by a British rider, will be supported by fellow Brits Geraint Thomas and – in his first ever Tour de France – Steve Cummings, along with six riders from other nationalities, all of whom have shown great form throughout the 2010 season.
Just over a week until the Tour De France which starts in Rotterdam this year and, with Team Sky participating, the first tour with a British based team.
Be interesting to see how they do as a team, I personally don’t expect too much this year but we’ll see. Obviously they have Bradley Wiggins who did brilliantly to come fourth last year but I’m not sure he’ll better that this time around.
I think Alberto Contador still has to be the favourite for the yellow jersey and it’ll also be intersting to see how Lance Armstrong and his new RadioShack team get on.
