London, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Jun, 2021 ) :The Ineos team are going on the offensive from the start of the Tour de France, said their long-time principal Dave Brailsford after revealing the line-up for the epic stage race on Friday.
They are joined by another Grand Tour champion in Tao Geoghegan Hart, who experienced his moment of glory in the 2020 Giro d'Italia.
Brailsford reflected his combative personality in throwing down the gauntlet to their rivals as they bid to regain their supremacy after a disappointing 2020 Tour.
"We won't win this tour by sitting in the wheels," said Brailsford in a team statement.
" Brailsford said there had been a change of tack this season -- that paid off with Egon Bernal's victory in May's Giro d'Italia.
"We have changed our race philosophy this season to being more open and aggressive," said Brailsford.
"Our performances have built all season and a joy of racing has infused the whole team.
"This more adventurous approach has led us to fearless racing and this is exactly how we will hit the Tour.
"Key for us this Tour is our collective strength and camaraderie to the end.
"Expect the unexpected." TeamRichard Carapaz, Jonathan Castroviejo, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Michal Kwiatkowski, Richie Porte, Luke Rowe, Geraint Thomas, Dylan van Baarle
