Jayco-AlUla are stepping into the Tour de France with the trio of Simon Yates, Dylan Groenewegen and Michael Matthews to cover the bases as they chase both the overall podium and stage victories at the race from June 29 to July 21.

Yates, who last year was fourth overall, will once again lead the general classification charge with key support rider Chris Harper alongside as he hopes to this year break Visma-Lease a Bike and UAE Team Emirates' stranglehold on the podium.
