Team RadioShack announce 2010 roster

Can they help Lance to an eighth Tour de France win?

The final lineup of the new RadioShack team headlined by Lance Armstrong has been announced. The 2010 roster includes 16 riders from 16 countries.

"It is a well balanced team," said manager Johan Bruyneel. "We have experienced riders – with some of them I worked already many years in my former teams – but we also have young talents who can develop in the perfect environment."

The team's main aim will be helping Armstrong to an eighth Tour de France title. He finished third overall in this year's Tour while racing for Astana, his first participation in the race since securing his seventh yellow jersey in 2005, after which he retired.

Bruyneel said: "Our main goal will be the Tour de France and other stage races but I am confident that, with these riders, we can perform very well in the one-day races as well." The team will gather for the first time in Tucson, Arizona in the second week of December.
