Katusha have packed their nine-man Tour team with climbers in a bid to help leader Joaquim Rodriguez land a podium finish.
Rodriguez may need to make up a significant amount of time on the big climbs as he is a much weaker time-trialler than race favourites Chris Froome and Alberto Contador.
"I think we will have the best and strongest roster we could choose," said the team's boss Valerio Piva.
"We will have Joaquim Rodriguez as a leader, and our main goal is to fight for general classification with him.
"For this aim, we have strong climbers such as Losada, Trofimov and, of course, Moreno, that will be our second in command.
"Moreover, we have also riders for protecting our leader in the first part of the competition, like Brutt, Smukulis, Kuchynski and Vorganov: I expect their work to be crucial, especially in the team time trial and in the breakaways."
Katusha's Tour de France line-up for 2013:
Pavel Brutt (Rus)
