Paris - American racing outfit Trek unveiled their eight riders for the Tour de France on Friday with Dutch climber Bauke Mollema and German sprinter John Degenkolb top of the bill.

Mollema has twice placed in the Tour de France top ten and won a key mountain stage in 2017.

He was also involved in the Mont Ventoux crash in 2016 where Chris Froome famously ran off up the hill as his bike was broken.

Degenkolb is a powerful one-day racer and former winner of Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo.
