RadioShack on Monday announced two 40-year-old riders in their team for the Tour de France, already shorn of 2010 champion Andy Schleck, the Luxemburger having sustained a fractured pelvis last week.

German Jens Voigt and American Chris Horner, born within a month of each other in 1971, will be on the start line in Liege, Belgium, on June 30 alongside Frank Schleck, third in last year’s Tour.

The team also includes Swiss Olympic time-trial champion Fabian Cancellara, German Andreas Kloeden — second in the 2004 Tour, Spaniard Haimar Zubeldia and French hope Tony Gallopin.

RadioShack team: Fabian Cancellara (SUI), Tony Gallopin (FRA), Chris Horner (USA), Andreas Kloeden (GER), Maxime Monfort (BEL), Yaroslav Popovych (UKR), Frank Schleck (LUX), Jens Voigt (GER), Haimar Zubeldia (ESP)
