Tour de France: RadioShack-Leopard (LUX)

Latest update : 2013-06-28

Below are the tactics and composition of Luxembourg team Radioshack-Leopard in the 2013 Centenary Tour de France.

RadioShack will have an impressive line-up, but will 2010 Tour champion Andy Schleck be ready to race? Schleck has been conspicuously absent for the past two seasons but is said to be raring to go. It is perhaps just as well, as powerful Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara - a sure bet for a stage win - will not participate this year.

The team:

Jan Bakelants (BEL), Laurent Didier (LUX), Tony Gallopin (FRA), Markel Irizar (ESP), Andreas Klöden (GER), Maxime Monfort (BEL), Andy Schleck (LUX), Jens Voigt (GER), Haimar Zubeldia (ESP)
