A few years ago, we’d have been suggesting Tour de France stage wins for Fabian Cancellara and podium places for Andy and Fränk Schleck for this team. As it is, Cancellara has been suffering this year with injury, while Schleck junior has called it quits and Schleck senior doesn’t look far off either.

Trek now place most of their hopes on success from Bauke Mollema, who while having impressed in some shorter stage races, has not yet proven his pedigree in the three week Grand Tours.

Usually a more prominent feature in the Classics thanks to Cancellara and Stijn Devolder’s presence in the American outfit, Trek are still looking for that final ingredient to make them big race contenders through the whole year. Young Colombian Julian Arredondo might have the answer, winning the King of the Mountains calssification in the 2014 Giro d’Italia, but the team might need more than the help of him and veteran Haimar Zubeldia to lift Mollema into the podium spots at the Tour.
