CCC Team will throw their emphasis behind stage hunting in this year’s Tour de France, while also giving Ilnur Zakarin the chance to ride for his own GC bid.

The Polish team announced their eight-man squad for the Tour de France on Friday with four previous stage winners within their ranks. The team will be spearheaded by Olympic road champion, Greg Van Avermaet, with the Belgian flanked by an array of attacking options including Matteo Trentin and Alessandro De Marchi. Jan Hirt also makes his debut and finished 12th in the Giro d’Italia in 2017. Alongside Zakarin he will lead the team in the mountains, while there is also a spot for former Tour de France stage winner Simon Geschke.
