Fabian Cancellara, Linus Gerdemann, Maxime Monfort, Jakob Fuglsang, Jens Voigt, Stuart O'Grady and Joost Posthuma will join Andy and Frank Schleck in the recently-formed team's line-up for cycling's showpiece event.

Hundreds of fans of the Luxembourg based team had the opportunity to wish the nine bike riders the best of luck, sending them off to France with a big round of applause.

"It is no secret that we go to the Tour to try to win it," said team manager Kim Andersen.

"We have high ambitions for this team. We will target the overall and possibly even win some stages on the way to Paris."
