The big news from Directeur Sportif Jean-Paul van Poppel is that his son Boy is no longer the youngster on this team. His younger brother Danny who doesn't even turn 20 until after the Tour reaches Paris will take that honour and may even be the youngest rider in the Tour. But they don't have a real GC contender so it will be breakaways and possibly sprints for the van Poppel boys that might be the aim for the team.
Sergey Lagutin from Uzbekistan is making his Tour debut, though he has taken part in both the Giro and Vuelta in each of the last two seasons. Last year he also managed to come third in the Olympic Road Race losing out in the sprint for bronze to the Norwegian Alexander Kristoff.
The teams hasn't really got a GC contender in their midst but with the two van Poppels and Boeckmans have some speed merchants that could form a lead out for which ever one is designated as the one the others will help. Expect to see the team getting men into the breaks, there is plenty of ability there to try and stay away on any given day. The sprinters will be tested there are better men in the race than them but it will be a learning experience for all of them.
