Davitamon-Lotto announces TdF pre-selection

Marc Sergeant, directeur-sportif for the Davitamon-Lotto team, spoke with Hugo Coorevits, reporter for Belgian Newspaper Het Volk, where he revealed 11 names on the team's pre-selection for the upcoming Tour de France.

Like the Giro, it appears the team will go to the Tour de France with a mixed bag: "The seven riders won't all be riding for McEwen or Evans," said Sergeant. "With Van Bon and Rodriguez, Robbie will have his two personal locomotives. Merckx, Aerts, Brandt, Baguet, Vansevenant, Mattan, Van Summeren and Roesems are also included in the pre-selection. The Giro has taught us that it's better to take publicity on different terrains."
