What to know
This French continental squad is a first-time invitee to the Tour de France and has filled the spot formerly taken by Wanty-Groupe Gobert. The French team has attracted a smattering of WorldTour veterans, including Pierre Rolland, Jens Debusschere, and Cyril Gautier. The team’s biggest player is sprinter Bryan Coquard, a cagy fast man who can survive the hills and still have a good punch at the end.
As a first-year invitee, the pressure is on the team to make waves, so look for them to start the early breakaway.
