The Movistar team has confirmed this Wednesday its list of eight riders for the Tour de France that begins this Saturday in Nice. The team had already unveiled several tracks with the concentration of ten riders in Courchevel in the 'bubble' prior to the trip to Nice, although it was not until today that they announced their line-up.

In this way, Movistar will go with all its heavy artillery to the Tour de France, since the assured presence of Enric Mas and Alejandro Valverde is joined by the inclusion of Marc Soler, the theoretical third leader of the team, who at first seemed that he was only going to participate in the great tours in the next Giro d'Italia, where he will have the leading stripes.

Mas, Valverde and Soler will have the difficult mission of trying to reach the top in the first year without Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa in the team after the 'tricephaly' that the team took to the Tour in previous editions and of which only Alejandro Valverde remains on the team.

Along with Mas, Valverde and Soler, Movistar has a powerful team to help its three leaders in the French round. Dario Cataldo and Carlos Verona will work to take their leaders as far as possible on the mountain, while Imanol Erviti, Nelson Oliveira and José Joaquín Rojas will be in charge of protecting their teammates on the plain as well as participating as possible infiltrators in the escapes. in the mountain days. The team keeps Antonio Pedrero and Jürgen Roelandts as reserves against possible last minute changes.
