Quickstep-Innergetic has announced its final roster for the tour starting on Saturday. Not surprisingly, the team is built primarily around Tom Boonen, who will be trying for stage wins as well as the yellow jersey, hoping he can take it into his home country of Belgium on the second stage from Dunkirk to Gent.

Meanwhile, Kevin Van Impe has signed a new contract with the squad, taking him through to the end of the 2008 season with an option for the 2009 season.

Quickstep-Innergetic Tour de France roster: Tom Boonen (Bel), Carlos Barredo (Esp), Steven De Jongh (Ned), Juan Manuel Garate (Esp), Bram Tankink (Ned), Matteo Tosatto (Ita), Sébastien Rosseler (Bel), Gert Steegmans (Bel), Cédric Vasseur (Fra).
