At the completion of its training camp in Puente Viesgo, Spain, the Liberty Seguros-Würth team has named its nine riders for the Tour de France: Joseba Beloki, Alberto Contador, Allan Davis, Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano, Roberto Heras, Jörg Jaksche, Luis León Sanchez, Marcos Serrano and Ángel Vicioso will all ride, with Jan Hruska and René Andrle down as reserves.

The team is a balanced one and has a number of options for stage wins, including Davis in the bunch sprints, Contador, Jaksche, Sanchez, and Vicioso for breakaways, and Heras for the high mountain stages and he and Jaksche for the general classification. The form of two-time Tour podium finisher Joseba Beloki is still questionable, but he could be a contender in the mountains as well.
