American WorldTour team Cannondale-Drapac will travel to the Clasica San Sebastian with five riders coming out of the Tour de France, including runner-up Rigoberto Uran.

The Colombian, who finished second in the Tour after surpassing Romain Bardet in the time trial on the penultimate day, is the principal name on the team's list for the Basque classic.

Sport director Juanma Garate believes that the Tour de France is a good lead-up to San Sebastian. This week is hard for them. They are tired and empty but if they can keep focus with a high professional attitude they can make the difference on Saturday," he said.

"We will be a favorite team at the start. Everybody knows that Rigo finished the Tour really strong and with a physical condition in progress. We will race with confidence in our possibilities and with a single objective: to win the bike race."

Nate Brown, who also rode the Tour de France, believes that anything can happen on Saturday. This is the first time I’ve raced so soon after a grand tour," he said. "I feel like it could go either way. I could feel amazing. I could feel horrible. I’m excited to see what happens.

"San Sebastian is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s so beautiful. I love the racing there."
