RadioShack manager Johan Bruyneel has announced that the team has finalized its roster for the 2010 season. Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, will count on a diverse group of 26 riders that hail from 16 different countries.

“It is a well balanced team”, commented Johan Bruyneel. “We have experienced riders - with some of them I worked already many years in my former teams – but we also have young talents who can develop in the perfect environment. I am happy that our sponsors want to invest in the future of cycling.

"Our main goal will be the Tour de France and other stage races but I am confident that, with these riders, we can perform very well in the one-day races as well. I look forward to the new season with Team RadioShack and our first training camp.”

The team's title sponsor RadioShack Corporation has agreed to a multi-year sponsorship for cycling and looks forward a successful 2010 and beyond.

"Johan and Lance have methodically assembled an enviable team of riders and staff as strong as any on the ProTour, and we are confident that Team RadioShack is positioned for tremendous success in 2010", said RadioShack's Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lee Applbaum.

The RadioShack line-up includes the entire 2009 Tour de France winning team from Astana minus Tour winner Spaniard Alberto Contador. The team will make its debut this January at the Santos Tour Down Under, where Armstrong will again start his build-up for an eighth Tour de France crown.
