Nairo, Landa and Valverde, in the list of Movistar for the Tour

In the absence of official confirmation by the team, nine cyclists form the pre-selection of Movistar for the Tour de France, which starts on July 6 in Brussels.

There is less than a month left for the start of the Tour de France on July 6 in Brussels and while the cyclists finalize details in the Dauphiné or the next Tour of Switzerland, details are known about the team's line-up for the Grande Boucle.

A lack of official confirmation, the Movistar would already have a 9-runner ticket for the Tour de France. A first selection in which does not appear Richard Carapaz, current champion of the Tour of Italy, but yes the three leaders of the team: Nairo Quintana, Mikel Landa and Alejandro Valverde.

Nairo part as theoretical leader of the team with Landa, which comes from graze the podium in the Giro d'Italia, and Valverde, who will compete in the French round after resigning the Giro for the fall he suffered before Liège-Bastoña-Liège.

The nine of this price list of Movistar would complete it Andrey Amador (which also comes from doing the Giro), Carlos Verona, Winner Anacona and Marc Soler to help in the mountains, and Nelson Oliveira and Imanol Erviti to clothe the team in the flat areas. The squad of Eusebio Unzué must make a discard before confirming his list of 8 to wear the yellow jersey on the Champs Elysees in Paris on July 28.
