EF Education-EasyPost head to the Tour de France with a team almost of two halves. It's a squad replete with plenty of climbers able to support new leader Richard Carapaz as he takes aim at the general classification, but also one featuring several stage hunters chasing wins of their own.

The Ecuadorian climber, reigning Olympic champion, heads up the eight-man selection, while the likes of Magnus Cort – a double Tour stage winner – is joined by Alberto Bettiol and Neilson Powless on the American team.
