Euskatel will line up with four Tour de France debutants when the race starts this weekend, the Basque cycling team said on Tuesday.
France's Romain Sicard, the 2009 world under-23 champion, begins his first Tour at the age of 25 while Spanish riders Jon Izagirre, Juan Jose Lobato and Mikel Nieve also start for the first time.
"The aim is to win a stage. Climbers like Igor Anton and Mikel Nieve have already succeeded on the Giro or the Vuelta but the Tour is different," the team said.
