Paris - Colombian Nairo Quintana will headline the Movistar team in his bid for the Tour de France's yellow jersey after two second-places in 2013 and 2015.

Spaniard Alejandro Valverde, who was third in 2015, is also included in the team but has said he has no personal ambitions on the Tour.

Colombian climber Winner Anacona, Portugal's time-trial champion Nelson Oliveira, and four other Spaniards, including Ion Izagirre and Dani Moreno, make up the team.
