Winner of three stages at the Giro and three others at the Tour of Spain, the Vosgien (30) has never been able to do the same on the Tour during his first three participations.
The French team will field two former stage winners, Warren Barguil and Colombian Nairo Quintana.
“The team is built around our three leaders: Nairo Quintana, Warren Barguil and Nacer Bouhanni”, announced its general manager Emmanuel Hubert. “The objective is to open up as many opportunities as possible to us in order to secure a stage victory, without neglecting other objectives as the race progresses.”

Present on the final podium three times (2nd in 2013 and 2015, 3rd in 2016), Nairo Quintana will not have a compatriot with him unlike last year. Neither Winner Anacona nor Dayer Quintana were selected.
On the other hand, Bouhanni will benefit from the presence of his usual pitcher, Briton Dan McLay.
