Movistar has announced its shortlist for the 2018 Tour de France. As expected, the team will be led by Alejandro Valverde, Mikel Landa and Nairo Quintana.

The team made the announcement of the entire squad that will support the three men at the Grande Boucle during an event in Madrid. "We go to the Tour with big hopes to shine," commented Quintana. "It’s not just the three of us; with the five team-mates we’ll have at the start with us, the lineup will be one to fear," added Landa.

Valverde emphasised the fact that a triple leadership will give them an edge over the competition. "The race will set things straight as usual, but having three chances to win offers us many strategical choices we’ll try to take advantage from," the Spaniard explained.

This will be the eighth consecutive Tour de France for the team with the sponsorship of Movistar. In past editions, the team has managed to take six stage victories and four final podiums.

Movistar's complete line-up for the Tour de France (7th to 29th of July):

Alejandro Valverde
Mikel Landa
Nairo Quintana
Andrey Amador
Daniele Bennati
Imanol Erviti
Nelson Oliveira
José Joaquín Rojas
Marc Soler
Jasha Sütterlin
