Belgian classicist veteran Philippe Gilbert and two sprinters, Australian Caleb Ewan and German John Degelkolb, will form the assets of the Belgian Lotto Soudal team for the Tour de France starting in Nice on August 29. The teams are already beginning to outline their teams and this time it has been the Lotto Soudal who has presented his credentials for the French race, opting for the veteran of Gilbert, 38, to hunt stages of "classic" cut and Ewan, who won 3 stages in 2019 and Degenkolb as sprinters who must qualify for speed wins.

Gilbert will come motivated after not having attended in 2019 because his then team, the Deceuninck-Quick Step left him on the "bench". The Belgian's great goal this season will also be focused on winning the Milan San Remo on August 8, as it is the only monument he lacks in his record. For the mountain stages, the Lotto Soudal will have two guerrillas such as Thomas De Gendt and Tim Wellens, habitual in escapades.

The entire team will be composed of Steff Crass (Belgium), Jasper De Buyst (Belgium), Thomas De Gendt (Belgium), Philippe Gilbert (Belgium), John Degenkolb (Germany), Caleb Ewan (Australia), Roger Kluge (Germany) and Tim Wellens (Belgium) .
