Groupama - FDJ (FDJ)

France’s national lottery, La Française des Jeux, has sponsored the team managed by former racing cyclist Marc Madiot since 1997. The team will have a new main sponsor this year in the form of insurance company Groupama.

It has kept the team colours of the French Tricolour.

FDJ has signed 34-year-old Steve Morabito and 27-year-old Sébastien Reichenbach. The two riders originate from western Switzerland and are both important domestiques for French leader Thibaut Pinot. They have competed in the Critérium du Dauphiné in each of the past two seasons. However, although the French race takes place at almost the same time, it is looking certain that the two Swiss riders will be competing in their home country’s tour again this year.
