Garmin-Barracuda (formerly Garmin-Cervelo), the Boulder, CO, based cycling team, has released its roster of riders and directors for the 2012 Tour de France.

On Thursday June 21, Team Garmin-Barracuda (headquartered in Boulder, CO) announced its 2012 Tour de France roster of riders and directors, and 2012 Giro d'Italia winner Ryder Hesjedal is the biggest name on the list. He will be joined by specialists like time trial experts David Zabriskie and David Millar and sprinters Tyler Farrar and Robbie Hunter.

Director of Competition for Team Garmin-Barracuda, Allan Peiper, also spoke with slipstreamsports.com about the composition of the team:

"We have put together a well-balanced team with an emphasis on support for our leader, Ryder. We have Christian and Tom, both excellent climbers who each have had great GC rides in the Tour and have shown their strength in recent racing. Dan Martin, making his Tour debut, rounds out the climbers of the team. The climbers will have the support of TT specialists David Millar and David Zabriskie along with Johan Vansummeren, who will also be able to help out sprinters Farrar and Hunter in the quest for stage wins."
