Tour de France: Saxo-Tinkoff (DEN)

Latest update : 2013-06-28

Below are the tactics and composition of Danish team Saxo-Tinkoff in the 2013 Centenary Tour de France.

Alberto Contador will have strong support from key riders like Roman Kreuziger, Michael Rogers and Nicolas Roche as he bids for a third yellow jersey triumph having been stripped of his 2010 win to a positive doping test. But it has been a mediocre season so far for the Spaniard, whose experience, tactical nous and reliance on strong teammates will be crucial.

The team:

Daniele Bennati (ITA), Alberto Contador (ESP), Jesus Hernandez (ESP), Roman Kreuziger (RTC), Benjamin Noval (ESP), Sergio Paulinho (POR), Nicolas Roche (IRL), Michael Rogers (AUS), Matteo Tosatto (ITA).
