|Sky Pro Cycling announced their roster for this year's Tour de France, naming Britain Bradley Wiggins as the team leader in the General Classification. World Road Race Champion Mark Cavendish will be on the hunt for sprint stages at this year's Tour de France as he attempts to defend his points jersey, which he won for the first time in his career in the 2011 edition.
Wiggins and Cavendish will be joined in the world's biggest bicycling race by Chris Froome, Richie Porte, Christian Knees Michael Rogers, Bernhard Eisel, Kanstantsin Siutsou and Edvald Boasson Hagen. Edvald Boasson Hagen will be Mark Cavendish's main lead out man in the sprint stages, while Chris Froome and Michael Rogers will be Bradley Wiggins main helpers when the race hits the big mountains.
Dave Brailsford commented on the team's nine man line-up: “Deciding our final nine was a very tough challenge because we are blessed with a great depth of talent in our squad. We believe we have picked a strong and balanced team though, and one which can cater for any eventuality."
Celebrating our tenth year!
