Paris - American rider Taylor Phinney will take part in the Tour de France for the first time with his new team Cannondale, who announced their race line-up on Friday.
Phinney's compatriot Andrew Talansky, who finished 10th on the Tour in 2013, and Colombia's Rigoberto Uran will be the team's leading hopes in the general classification.

He won a stage on the Giro d'Italia in 2012 but suffered serious injuries, including multiple leg fractures, in a crash in 2014.
This year's Tour de France starts in the German city of Dusseldorf on Saturday and ends in Paris on July 23.
