British WorldTour outfit Team Sky announced their nine-man roster for the 2016 Tour de France on Wednesday afternoon, and the cycling world gave its verdict on the selection via social media.
There were no major surprises in the nine men selected to ride the 103rd edition of the Tour, with Chris Froome returning to defend his title - and with a team built to help him.
Froome will be joined by Geraint Thomas, Ian Stannard, Luke Rowe, Vasil Kiryienka, Mikel Landa, Mikel Nieve, Wout Poels and Sergio Henao.
Some were surprised at the absence of Irishman Nicolas Roche and former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski.
