Trek have confirmed the ninth and final rider on their Tour de France roster and the spot has been taken by Jens Voigt. The 42-year-old German will get one final ride in the world's biggest race before he ends his career at the end of the season.

 

When he finished the Tour de France 12 month ago, Jens Voigt said that he was unlikely to return to La Grande Boucle. However, the German has changed his mind and today it has been confirmed that the 2014 edition of the race will be included in his race schedule.

 

At the end of the season, Voigt will end his career and in the last few weeks he has done nothing to hide that he would love to ride the Tour one final time. During the last 24 hours, Trek have gradually released their Tour de France roster and after the Schleck brothers were confirmed earlier today, they have announed that Voigt has been selected for the final spot.

 

With aggressive performances in the Tour of California, Bayern Rundfahrt and the Dauphiné, Voigt has shown solid condition over the last few weeks and as the team has no obvious GC favourite, he may get the chance to ride an aggressive race. In addition on going on the attack, the American team will support the Schleck brothers and Haimar Zubeldia in their quest to do well in the overall standings while youngster Danny Van Poppel will chase success in the sprints.

 

Trek for the Tour de France:

Frank Schleck, Andy Schleck, Haimar Zubeldia, Markel Irizar, Matthew Busche, Danny Van Poppel, Gregory Rast, Fabian Cancellara and Matthew Busche
