Aha!

When I read the other day that Ecuador had withdrawn from the race (and others might also have for all I know) I just had a feeling/hope that this might be on the cards.

The WT riders are all too old now, so the team will have to come from the devo squad. That's five from Levi, Lahav, Goldstein, Davidzon, Abu-Fares and Ben Moshe.

They'll get their arses handed to them of course, but it'll be a good experience.

Unfortunately for Davidzon, it is him that misses out.

Saned ABU-FARES (Israel Cycling Academy Continental), Espoir 3
Yuval BEN MOSHE (Israel Cycling Academy Continental), Espoir 3
Edo GOLDSTEIN (Israel Cycling Academy Continental), Espoir 2
Omer LAHAV (Israel Cycling Academy Continental), Espoir 2
Eitan LEVI (Israel Cycling Academy Continental), Espoir 2
Roi WEINBERG (Israel Go Pro), Espoir 2

Lahav did pretty well in Rwanda I thought and is only 51kg according to PCS. He might be their best bet on the climbing days, which is all of them bar one. Ben Moshe is fast-ish, but even a top-ten on the one sprint stage would be a big surprise.

Edo Goldstein is supposedly the most talented of the three brothers. Not much data is available though to make a valued decision on that unless you count being able to hang with Evenepoel on a stage in junior race the other year.
