Philippe Gilbert will be good at the Tour!

The Remoucastrien is, in fact, part of a first selection of six riders stopped by his team, Lotto-Soudal. He is sure to be there, like Caleb Ewan, Tim Wellens, Andreas Kron, Florian Vermeersch and Brent Van Moer. There are therefore three places to be filled in the Belgian formation.

Gilbert, for whom this is his last season as a professional, will take part in July’s high mass for the twelfth time in his career. It will be an event all the more special for him as he will celebrate his 40th birthday on July 5, the day of the stage between Dunkirk and Calais. “I am obviously very happy, reacted the interested party from Switzerland. I will be able to celebrate my 40th birthday there. But be careful, I intend to do my job for Caleb Ewan and I am also very motivated to show myself “With my experience, I can be of great use to the team. Now I’m looking forward to the start of Copenhagen.”
