Australian Simon Clarke will make his third Tour de France appearance when he lines up with Cannondale Drapac for the 1 July Grand Tour.
Clarke is a punchy and aggressive racer who can take leadership on the road while also looking out for his own chances.
He heads into the Tour with good form after placing 12th overall, and as the best placed Cannondale Drapac rider at the recent Critérium du Dauphiné, 4min 28sec behind the winner, Jakob Fuglsang (Astana).
"My top three Tour de France memories are: winning the team time trial in 2013, having the yellow jersey in the team for four days that same year.
"The following year, on stage 13 in 2014, it was my birthday, and I had been in the breakaway all day the day before. I had a really bad day. It was probably one of the hardest days I have ever had on the bike.
"This year? A successful Tour from a personal perspective would be winning a stage."
Kiwi Patrick Bevan is also in the squad, making his debut and completing his transition to the WorldTour.
"I want to leave a mark on the Tour," he said. "The team is very keen to animate the race, and I can’t wait to be part of that. At the end of three
"At the end of three weeks, I want some performances to be proud of, not just three weeks of holding on for dear life. I am genuinely excited about being part of the Tour.
"I was one of those kids up at 3am in New Zealand watching the Tour every July, completely captivated by it. You can’t shake those feelings and to cross that threshold and be on the other side is a privilege not many get to experience."
Joining Clarke and Bevin at the Tour are Alberto Bettiol, Nate Brown, Taylor Phinney, Pierre Rolland, Andrew Talansky, Rigoberto Uran and Dylan van Baarle.
