Giant-Alpecin announce Tour de France long list

Giant-Alpecin have announced a 13-rider long list for the 2015 Tour de France, spearheaded by Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb. Kittel has won four stages at each of the last two editions of the Tour de France, including the Champs-Élysées twice, although has been hampered by illness so far this season. Degenkolb, who has won nine stages at the Vuelta a España and one stage at the Giro d'Italia, will be aiming for a debut Tour win to complete his grand tour hat trick after a successful classics campaign in which he won Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix.
