Thomas Voeckler is selected for the Tour de France by his team Europcar. The Frenchman was suffering from knee problems, but is recovered in time to be at Saturday’s Grand Départ in the Belgian city of Liège.

Last year Voeckler surprised everybody by finishing fourth in the Tour. For ten days Titi rode in the yellow jersey, but in the final days he could not hold onto it.

Together with Pierre Rolland, who won the white youth jersey last year, Voeckler will lead the Europcar formation.
