Greg Henderson's maiden participation in the Tour de France has been confirmed.
The 35-year-old has been named in Lotto-Belisol's Tour line up, where he'll be the lead-out rider for German sprinter Andre Greipel.
Henderson's likely to be the only Kiwi riding this year's event.
Meanwhile, five of the riders that guided Cadel Evans to victory in last year's Tour are returning to help him defend the title.
BMC Racing's named its team, with American Tejay van Garderen, Great Britain's Steve Cummings and Belgian Philippe Gilbert the new additions from 2011.
