Team Sky announced its roster for the upcoming Tour de France. The eight riders who will be supporting defending champion Chris Froome are Sergio Henao, Vasil Kiryienka, Mikel Landa, Mikel Nieve, Wout Poels, Luke Rowe, Ian Stannard and Geraint Thomas. Froome is seeking his third win in four years.

“I feel in good shape coming into the race this year and am fortunate to have a strong team around me – both on and off the bike,” said Froome. “Every rider obviously starts every new Tour equal and what has gone before counts for nothing. This year I am hungrier than ever for success.”

“We have selected a talented group of riders with Chris as the leader once again. I know they will do everything they can to help him try to win yellow,” team principle Dave Brailsford said.

“We can take a lot of confidence as a team from what we have achieved already this year, but we know how much it takes to win the Tour.”

“There is not a trace of complacency in the team,” said Froome. “We know how hard this race will be and how much we will have to give if we want to win it again. But we have trained hard. We’re ready for the challenge and can’t wait to get back racing in front of the millions of people in France who make the race so special.”
