The newly renamed Garmin-Chipotle team unveiled its Tour de France roster, which features three of only four Americans in the entire Tour peloton.
The team, formerly known as Slipstream-Chipotle, is making its debut in the world’s biggest bicycle race, but the roster, released on Tuesday, includes several Tour de France veterans.

As a team, we are dedicated to giving our fans and the world something to cheer for at the Tour.”
The new Team Garmin-Chipotle team kit will be unveiled in presentation two days before the July 5 start of the Tour in Brest, France.
