Tour de France teams: Lotto-Soudal
Caleb Ewan finally makes his Tour debut after being snubbed by his former team, Mitchelton-Scott, last year. He will share resources with Lotto’s breakaway specialists, because stage wins are most important to the Belgian squad. Thomas De Gendt, Tiesj Benoot, and Tim Wellens create a formidable trio of breakaway specialists who are guaranteed to attack on every hilly day. De Gendt is the most experienced breakaway rider in the bunch, and a stage win would spell 2019 success for the Belgian rider and his team.
