On-form speedster Juan José Lobato will spearhead a versatile Euskaltel contingent in the ENECO Tour.
The WorldTour race traversing Belgium and the Netherlands commences Monday and runs through Sunday. Lobato, fresh off his commanding win in the Circuito de Getxo, will look to add another podium place or two to his fast-expanding palmarès on the many flat stages. He'll be ably supported in his quest by Rubén Pérez, Jon Aberasturi, Ioannis Tamouridis, Garikoitz Bravo, Romain Sicard, Miguel Mínguez and a fit-again Jure Kocjan.
The latter has been ruled out of competition for the better part of three months due to a viral infection, but has sufficiently recovered to put on his first back number since the Bayern Rundfahrt in late May.
Romain Sicard, on his part, will make his first competitive appearance since completing his first Tour de France last month.
