Team Ineos Grenadiers has announced the roster for the upcoming Tour de France and the leaders for each of the grand tours.

The British team has confirmed the eight-man formation that will tackle the French grand tour, in which the absences of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas are notable. The roster will be led by the winner of the 2019 edition of the race Egan Bernal and Richard Carapaz will make his debut in the race.

"Egan will once again target the yellow jersey in France and we are very excited to give last year's Giro winner, Richard Carapaz, his debut in this year's Tour also," said Ineos' Team Principal sir Dave Brailsford. "Geraint will target the Giro and take on the opportunity to double up his Tour de France win with another Grand Tour title, with the aim of being the first Welshman to win it.

"In turn, Chris Froome will target the Vuelta. Chris is a legend of our sport, a true champion who has demonstrated incredible grit and determination to come back from his crash last year. We want to support him to compete for another Grand Tour title and the Vuelta gives him that little bit more time to continue his progress to the top level."

Ineos' line-up for the Tour de France (August 29-September 20):

Andrey Amador
Egan Bernal
Richard Carapaz
Jonathan Castroviejo
Michal Kwiatkowski
Luke Rowe
Pavel Sivakov
Dylan van Baarle
