Today Team Sky briefly published an 11-rider short list for the Tour de France on its website but after having removed it they claim that it is not their final squad.

 

The list is led by Chris Froome who will target a second Tour title in July. Also on the list are Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas who are both expected to have guaranteed spots on the roster.

 

The list also includes climbers Leopold König, Mikel Nieve, Sergio Henao, Wout Poels and Peter Kennaugh. The former two rode the Giro d'Italia and their selection will depend on their recovery. Nieve recently finished second in the Tour de Slovenie to prove that he is still in good condition. Kennaugh and Poels both rode strongly in the Dauphiné and it will be a surprise if they don't feature on the roster. Henao has had a remarkable comeback from his horrific crash in last year's Tour de Suisse and he recently finished 11th in the Tour de Suisse despite working hard for Thomas

 

Danny Pate, Luke Rowe and an Stannard complete the roster and at least two of them are expected to be part of the roster to help Froome stay safe in the flat stages, most notably the feared ride on the cobbles.

 

The big surprise is the absence of Nicolas Roche and Philip Deignan. Both delivered below-par performance in the Dauphiné.

 

The final roster is expectd to be announced early next week.
