Lotto Soudal has announced their team for the upcoming Tour de France. Caleb Ewan will be seen leading the team to victory. He will be accompanied by Florian Vermeersch, Frederik Frison, Brent Van Moer and Reinardt Janse van Rensburg.


 Philippe Gilbert also made it to the team. His 12th appearance in the event will also mark his final participation. Tim Wellens and Andreas Kron also made it to the team. The management feels that they have picked out the best of the best and are ready to face the challenges of the Tour:

With these eight we can play our part on almost every terrain in this Tour de France

The Tour de France is the perfect chance for the team to revive themselves. Even though Arnaud De Lieโ€™s recent performance did more than good for the team, he did not make the cut to the final selection.

So far, Caleb Ewan has won a total of five races this year. Even though he did not get the results he wanted at the Giro dโ€™Italia, he is still the star of the team for the Tour. His team shows full faith in him in their statement:

With Caleb Ewan we have one of the fastest riders of the peloton. He is our biggest chance on a stage win, and therefore we have made sure he is well surrounded with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Frederik Frison, Florian Vermeersch and Brent Van Moer

He made a banging debut in 2019 and took home a hat-trick and then won two more races of the Tour stages. Furthermore, he was only taken out when he met a tragic crash, breaking his collarbone.

The team has a good strategy for managing the difficult stages and breakaways. They reveled their motives behind the selection when they said:

Philippe Gilbert, Andreas Kron and Tim Wellens have proven the last weeks to be in a very good shape, they will definitely be active in the more difficult stages and be present in breakaways
