Giro d'Italia champion Ryder Hesjedal has been named in Team Garmin-Barracuda's Tour de France team alongside Briton David Millar and Irishman Dan Martin.
Hesjedal will start the Tour in Liege on June 30 little more than a month after becoming the first Canadian to win the Giro by finishing with the pink jersey in Milan.
Scotsman Millar is selected for his 11th Tour and could yet be included in the Great Britain road team for the Olympic Games after his lifetime ban was lifted.
Martin is the nephew of 1987 Tour winner Stephen Roche and will make his Tour debut.
Also supporting Hesjedal will be 2011 top-10 finisher Tom Danielson and Christian Vande Velde, a two-time top-ten finisher.
David Zabriskie and Millar will seek success in the three individual time-trials of the race and will also provide support both in the mountains and on the flat.
Tyler Farrar will be supported by South African Robbie Hunter in the sprints and 2010 Paris-Roubaix winner Johan Vansummeren completes the squad.
Team Garmin-Barracuda director of competition Allan Peiper said: "We have put together a well balanced team with an emphasis on support for our leader, Ryder.
"We have Christian and Tom, both excellent climbers who each have had great GC (general classification) rides in the Tour and have shown their strength in recent racing.
"Dan Martin, making his Tour debut, rounds out the climbers of the team.
"The climbers will have the support of TT specialists David Millar and David Zabriskie along with Johan Vansummeren, who will also be able to help out sprinters Farrar and Hunter in the quest for stage wins."
