Mark Cavendish is content to play second fiddle to Bradley Wiggins as his Team Sky colleague seeks overall victory at the Tour de France.
Team Sky have announced a squad built around Wiggins, who is seeking to become the first Briton to win the maillot jaune, with Cavendish, a winner of 20 stages in the last four Tours, seemingly set to prioritise the Olympic Games road race over the defence of his points classification green jersey.
Cavendish said: "It's a dream to ride for a team that holds so much British interest and has a chance to win the yellow jersey.
"I know the push for the GC (general classification) podium will make it more difficult for me to repeat the success I've enjoyed the last few years.
"But I'll compete and - as always - I'll dedicate myself to making it a successful Tour for Team Sky and, let's hope, for Britain."
Joining Wiggins, Cavendish and Chris Froome in the squad for the 99th edition of cycling's most fabled race are Australians Richie Porte, Michael Rogers, Norway's Edvald Boasson Hagen, Kanstantsin Siutsou of Belarus, Germany's Christian Knees and Bernhard Eisel of Austria.
Seven of the team set to begin the Tour on June 30 in Liege were in the eight-man squad earlier this month as Wiggins won the Criterium Dauphine, completing an unprecedented series of stage race triumphs following success in Paris-Nice and the Tour de Romandie.
American Danny Pate is the unfortunate party, omitted to allow Cavendish to have the support of Eisel, who acts as his ever-present bodyguard.
Cavendish has won the last three stages to finish on Paris' most famous boulevard, but with the London 2012 Olympic Games road race taking place six days after the conclusion of the Tour, he may yet opt to stop before the peloton reaches the French capital.
Three-time Olympic track champion Wiggins is embracing the tag of favourite, with defending champion Cadel Evans (BMC Racing) his main rival.
Wiggins, who will be riding in his sixth Tour and finished fourth in 2009, said: "I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and I'll do everything I can to win the Tour de France."
Evans will be supported by Briton Steve Cummings, while Ryder Hesjedal's bid to add to his Giro d'Italia title will be aided by David Millar.
Hesjedal and Millar are joined in the Team Garmin-Barracuda squad by Irishman Dan Martin - the nephew of 1987 Tour winner Stephen Roche - who will make his Tour debut.
