Movistar confirm strong line-up for Tour de France 2019

Landa and Quintana lead strong squad for the 2019 Tour

Movistar have confirmed their line-up for the 2019 Tour de France, with Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa set to lead the team. World champion Alejandro Valverde is also confirmed in the line-up, but is likely to play a support role.

The Spanish team went in to the 2018 Tour with a three-way leadership between their big name riders, but failed to make a significant impact in the general classification fight, with Nairo Quintana's summit finish win to Col du Portet the saving grace.
