In their first Grand Tour since the departure of Tom Dumoulin, Team Sunweb will tackle the Tour de France without general classification ambitions, as Tiesj Benoot leads the line along with a number of stage hunters and Classics hopefuls.  

Wilco Kelderman and Sam Oomen, both of whom have finished in the top-ten of Grand Tour, and both of whom are leaving the team at the end of the year, will head to the Giro d'Italia.
