Saunier Duval-Prodir announces Tour line up

Saunier Duval-Prodir has finalised the nine riders who will take part in the Tour de France, and the team looks to be a competitive one. Gilberto Simoni, who finished third in the Giro D'Italia will captain the squad and is aiming at a victory in Alpe d'Huez. He will be joined by José Ángel Gómez Marchante, David Cañada, Ruben Lobato, Francisco Ventoso, Riccardo Riccò, David De La Fuente, Christophe Rinero and David Millar. It will be the latter's first race since admitting to EPO use in 2004, as his suspension runs out on June 23. Millar does have three Tour stage wins to his credit, and will be an asset to the team, which will be directed by Joxean Matxin Fernández and Sabino Angoitia.
