Trek-Segafredo has unveiled its line-up for the upcoming Vuelta a España. As expected, Alberto Contador will be leading the team in his final race as a professional cyclist.

This Vuelta will be Contador's 18th grand tour and is set to be his final race, as the Spaniard recently announced. He will look to improve from last year's fourth place and, in the ideal scenario, get a fourth overall victory after having won the race in 2008, 2012 and 2014.

"El Pistolero" will be assisted by Colombian domestique Jarlinson Pantano, as well as a number of other riders capable of supporting him in the mountains.

Also present is German John Degenkolb, for whom this will be his fifth Vuelta appearance.

The full line-up:

Julien Bernard
Alberto Contador
John Degenkolb
Markel Irizar
Jesus Hernandez
Koen de Kort
Jarlinson Pantano
Peter Stetina
Edward Theuns
