Tour de France: Katusha (RUS)

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2013-06-28

Below are the tactics and composition of US team Katusha in the 2013 Centenary Tour de France.

Katusha's ambitions rest squarely on the slight shoulders of 34-year-old Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez, who is said to have trained hard to make sure his second participation is a success. After his runner-up place in the 2012 Giro, he did not take part this year in a bid to be fresh for the Tour de France.

The team:

Pavel Brutt (RUS), Alexander Kristoff (NOR), Aliaksandr Kuchynski (BLR), Alberto Losada (ESP), Daniel Moreno (ESP), Joaquim Rodriguez (ESP), Gatis Smukulis (LET), Yury Trofimov (RUS), Eduard Vorganov (RUS)
