CCC Team will start on the Tour de France with the main objective of taking stage victories. The formation will have a strong squad that can face diverse challenges.

Greg Van Avermaet is the last Belgian to wear the Yellow Jersey in La Grande Boucle and he will have the additional motivation of the start taking place in his home country. "The Tour de France is always an exciting time in the cycling season and this year's edition will be special for the team, for our title sponsor CCC, and for Polish cycling," said Team General Manager Jim Ochowicz.

"For the first time, the CCC brand will race on the world's biggest stage and we will make our debut at the Tour de France with the CCC Team name, the first Polish WorldTour team in the history of the race. Dariusz Milek, President of the CCC Group, has dreamed of this for a long time and we are proud to make it a reality on Saturday."

Van Avermaet is looking forward to the race. "It's really special to have the Grand Depart in Belgium," he explained. "To have the chance to race the biggest race of the year in front of family and friends definitely gives me extra motivation. Also, to line up as the most recent Belgian to wear the yellow jersey makes it even more exciting and something I am really proud of. I want to win a stage, that's no secret.

"Without a General Classification leader, we all have the freedom to go for our own results and that's really exciting. Not just for me, but for the whole team. I never expected to wear the yellow jersey for eight days last year and I think that is a good reminder of how you have to take every opportunity that comes your way during the race and be aggressive from start to finish."

CCC Team's line-up for the Tour de France (6th to 28th of July):

Patrick Bevin
Alessandro De Marchi
Simon Geschke
Serge Pauwels
