Olympic gold medallists Ed Clancy and Samuel Sanchez will join Sir Bradley Wiggins in the first Tour de Yorkshire.
Briton Clancy, 30, who won team pursuit gold medals in 2012 and 2008, and Spain's Sanchez, a gold medallist in 2008, will be racing in the May event.
The Tour will begin on 1 May with a stage from Bridlington to Scarborough, followed by Selby to York on 2 May, and then Wakefield to Leeds on 3 May.
Eleven-time Paralympic champion Dame Sarah Storey is in the women's event.
That race will take place on 2 May and consists of four 20km laps of a circuit in York. The full line-up for the women's race will be named on Tuesday, 21 April.
Wiggins, the 2012 Tour de France winner, will lead his own Team Wiggins developmental squad in the men's event after he leaves Team Sky in April.
The inaugural Tour de Yorkshire comes after the opening two stages of the 2014 Tour de France were held in the county.
Analysis: BBC Sport's Matt Slater
"Every new race on the already crowded calendar faces an uphill slog to establish itself. So the quality of the line-up for the inaugural Tour de Yorkshire is an encouraging testament to the excitement generated by last year's memorable Grand Depart.
"But there is one big name on the list the organisers might regret. BMC's Greg van Avermaet is a possible winner in Leeds but he is also under investigation for alleged doping offences in Belgium and may well be banned next month."
