Lotto Soudal has finalized its Tour de France line-up. Caleb Ewan will be supported in his hunt for sprint victories by Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Frederik Frison, Florian Vermeersch and Brent Van Moer. Philippe Gilbert, Andreas Kron and Tim Wellens will aim for success in stages with more altitude meters.
“With these 8 we can play our part on almost every terrain in this Tour de France”, says CEO John Lelangue about the line-up. “With Caleb Ewan we have one of the fastest riders of the peloton. He is our biggest chance on a stage win and therefore we have made sure he is well surrounded with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Frederik Frison, Florian Vermeersch and Brent Van Moer. Those last two will also definitely have highlighted the cobbled stage to Arenberg. Furthermore, Philippe Gilbert, Andreas Kron and Tim Wellens have proven the last weeks to be in a very good shape. They will definitely be active in the more difficult stages and be present in breakaways.”
