AG2R La Mondiale (ALM)

The French team led by Romain Bardet, who finished on the podium at the 2016 and 2017 Tour de France, has also been the home of Swiss rider Mathias Frank for the past couple of years. Since the start of the new season, he has been supported by fellow countryman and reigning Swiss champion Silvan Dillier.

Frank has come close to winning the Tour de Suisse on two occasions. In 2014, only the world champion Rui Costa finished ahead of him.

Can Mathias Frank fulfil his childhood dream this year and win a major tour on home soil?

We’ll certainly be keeping our fingers crossed for him.
