Frank Schleck is confident that he will be at the start of the Tour de France on June 30. The Luxemburger recently gave up in the Giro d'Italia due to a sore shoulder, but doesn't think that will get in his way.

"I’m very confident for the Tour de France”, the elder Schleck brother stated in Le Quotidien.

Team manager Johan Bruyneel has not yet made up his mind. "I repeat that nobody is sure of a Tour selection. But it is clear that Andy Schleck is the natural leader of the team because of his intrinsic qualities."
