I'm not sure they will but I'm also not sure they'll not.

I do think it's far more likely one of them will be the leader than Van Garderen. As I said, all will depend on their results this spring. Whoever between Woods, Uran, Higuita and Martinez will seem the strongest will most likely lead during the TdF, maybe there will be 2 co-leaders.
Vaughters has said on quite a few occasions that the future of the team from a GC standpoint is Higuita and Martinez. That's why they are going to the Tour, with Tejay going to the Giro as it suits his ITT skills more.

I fully expect EF to go to the Tour with an open mind on who will be leader, they'll be taking all of their leading riders.
 
Funny how there are people mentioning Nairo, López and Sosa for the Olympic RR. This race doesn't finish uphill like Emilia or Milano-Torino. They don't stand any chance for a medal. Nairo and Lopez would never bother working for someone else.
Yes, Jaramillo is the most stupid DS the world has seen... but that doesn't make them viable options.
Colombia doesn't have rouleurs, so the only chance are long lasting climbers with some speed and tactical sense. Urán, Henao, Betancur, Chaves, Bernal and Higuita fit that bill.
Henao seems past his prime, Betancur is unreliable, and Chaves and Urán, both have health issues.
If I were to call the domestiques, Martinez and Anacona come first.

You absolutely select one of Martinez and Anacona - It's a no brainer.
