Michal Kwiatkowski and David de la Cruz will lead Team Sky at the Vuelta a Espana, in the absence of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.

Poland's Kwiatkowski and Spain's De la Cruz, key lieutenants as Team Sky have won the last four Grand Tours, are joined in the eight-rider squad by one Briton, Tao Geoghegan Hart, the British squad announced on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old Londoner is making his Grand Tour debut as a reward for a superb first year with Team Sky.
