Contador and Degenkolb headline Trek team at the Tour de France

Alberto Contador will have two powerful climbers alongside him as he targets a third Tour de France title ten years after his first. In the mountains, the 34-year-old can count on Colombian Jarlinson Pantano, winner of a stage in last year’s race, and Dutchman Bauke Mollema.

The Trek team also features Germany’s John Degenkolb, recruited in the close season and winner of the Milan-SanRemo and the Paris-Roubaix classics two years ago. In an international lineup the US-registered team includes riders of seven different nations. Contador has five wins on major tours while 28-year-old Degenkolb has never won a stage on the Tour de France in his three times competing.

  • André Cardoso (POR)
  • Alberto Contador (ESP)
  • John Degenkolb (GER)
  • Koen De Kort (NED)
  • Fabio Felline (ITA)
  • Michael Gogl (AUT)
