Cape Town - South Africa's Daryl Impey has been handed a starting spot on the Orica-GreenEDGE team for this year's Tour de France.

Impey, 30, will be taking part in his third Tour de France having previously competed in 2012 and 2013.

Impey held the coveted yellow jersey in Stages 6 and 7 in 2013 - the first South African to do so.

Impey's team-mates in this year's race will be Simon Gerrans, Michael Matthews, Michael Albasini, Pieter Weening, Svein Tuft, Luke Durbridge, Adam Yates and Simon Yates.

Impey will be one of four South Africans in the 102nd edition of the famed race, joining MTN-Qhubeka trio Louis Meintjies, Jacques Janse van Rensberg and Reinardt Janse van Rensberg on the startline.

 The race starts on Saturday, July 4 and ends on Sunday, July 26.
