Below are the tactics and composition of British team Sky in the 2013 Centenary Tour de France.

Missing their 2012 Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins, Sky have the luxury of calling on the runner-up last year, Chris Froome, to step up to the plate. Froome has been on scintillating form all season and, thanks also to the form of mountain helper Richie Porte, starts as the yellow jersey favourite.

The team:

Christopher Froome (GBR), Edvald Boasson Hagen (NOR), Peter Kennaugh (GB), Vasil Kiryienka (BLR), David López (ESP), Richie Porte (AUS), Kanstantsin Siutsou (BLR), Ian Stannard (GBR), Geraint Thomas (GBR).
