TOUR DE FRANCE TEAMS

With the steam building up to this year’s Tour De France and a lot of star names participating this year, this edition will be one to watch. Here’s a look at how some of the teams are shaped up to support their leaders in the battle for the Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey). We have included the teams of the Big 4 and three other teams, which we feel could prove invaluable to their leaders who are outside favorites.

MoviStar Team (Spain)

Movistar

Having names like Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana, Movistar is one of the strongest competitors for the Tour De France title. The Colombian ‘specialist’ climber having missed out on last year’s edition is in every mood to show his dirth on the climbing after winning the Tirreno-Adriatico back in March. This will be Alejandro’s 7th time participating in Tour De France and will provide a supporting role to Quintana, providing the team with a plan B. Being one of the more experienced competitors. This year’s team consist of :-

Nairo Quintana (Colombia)

Alejandro Valverde (Spain)

Winner Anaconda (Colombia),

Jonathan Castroviejo (Spain)

Alex Dowsett (Great Britain)

Imanol Erviti (Spain)

Gorka Izagirre (Spain)

José Herrada (Spain)

Adriano Malori (Italy)
