Quick-Step Floors have confirmed a squad for every terrain for the upcoming Tour de France. Marcel Kittel, Philippe Gilbert and Dan Martin will be the men to watch in the Belgian team.

Kittel faces the French Grand Tour with the objective of becoming the third active rider to win at least ten stages in the race. The rider is one stage away from that goal and will have the help of a lead-out train conformed by New Zealand Time Trial champion Jack Bauer, Fabio Sabatini, Czech champion Zdenek Stybar, Matteo Trentin and Julien Vermote.

Former stage winner and yellow jersey wearer Gilbert goes with the objective of tackling the hilly stages.

Martin, who was in the top ten at last year's Grande Boucle and finished third in the most recent Criterium de Dauphine, will go for the General Classification and will have a good support for the mountains in debutant Gianluca Brambilla.

Quick-Step full line-up:

Jack Bauer (NZL)
Gianluca Brambilla (ITA)
Philippe Gilbert (BEL)
Marcel Kittel (GER)
Daniel Martin (IRL)
