Total Direct Energie
This French squad is built for the early breakaway: Total Direct Energie enters the Tour with experienced opportunists including Niki Terpstra and Rein Taaramäe. Look for the squad to attack in the early week of the Tour in an effort to grab valuable television time for its sponsors. Bonifazio is a capable sprinter who lacks the strong punch of the Tour’s fastest men; he could win from a reduced bunch on hilly stages.
Niki Terpstra, Lilian Calmejane, Anthony Turgis, Niccolò Bonifazio, Romain Sicard, Rein Taaramäe, Paul Ourselin, Fabien Grellier
