Team Sky have confirmed their seven man team for Paris-Tours, including new signing Owain Doull and his fellow Brits Ian Stannard, Luke Rowe and Andy Fenn
Mark Cavendish will be the British national team’s protected rider, aiming to repeat the success he had in Denmark in 2011.
Lars Petter Nordhaug will make his final appearance for the team that he’s been with since its maiden season in 2010. The Norwegian is set to join Matt Brammeir on Ireland’s first ever UCI Pro Continental cycling team, Aqua Blue Sport.
Completing Team Sky’s line-up at Paris-Tours are Michal Golas and Andy Fenn. Fenn’s future at the team is unconfirmed so this could be his last race in Sky colours.
