The roster for Team RadioShack, finalized by manager Johan Bruyneel, was announced today and will include seven-time Tour De France winner Lance Armstrong among its 26 riders coming from 16 different countries. “It is a well balanced team”, comments Bruyneel. “We have experienced riders - with some of them I worked already many years in my former teams – but we also have young talents who can develop in the perfect environment. Our main goal will be the Tour de France and other stage races but I am confident that, with these riders, we can perform very well in the one-day races as well. I look forward to the new season with Team RadioShack and our first training camp.”
