Bora-hansgrohe has chosen a strong team to reach the Tour de France objectives it has set from the start of the season. Peter Sagan and Rafal Majka will be in charge of commanding the roster at the French grand tour.

The world champion will start the race with the objective of winning at least one stage and take the points jersey, while Majka will attempt a top-five spot at the general classification.

"These goals are ambitious, and we saw last year how fast all the hard work, all the efforts over months, can be lost within a second," said team manager Ralph Denk. "But we did our homework, again we worked very hard and we are well prepared, there is nothing more that could have been done. All our guys are in shape on time. Of course, it’s not easy to find a balance in your line-up with two leaders on the team, but I think we did a good job.

"I am optimistic about the TTT, we improved a lot there. And we have a lot of specialists for the Roubaix stage, I think we can make a difference there. Gregor and Pawel will support Rafal in the mountains, Daniel, Bodi and Marcus are our guys for the flat. Lukas is an allrounder that is strong in hilly terrain, but also fast in lead-outs for Peter."

Complete line-up of Bora-hansgrohe for the Tour de France (7th to 29th of July):

Marcus Burghardt
Gregor Mühlberger
Pawel Poljanski
Peter Sagan
Maciej Bodnar
Rafal Majka
Daniel Oss
Lukas Pöstlberger
