The French team, originally known as Europcar, is competing in its 22nd season since its foundation in 2000.
As it has in the past three editions the French Pro-Continental team TotalEnergies joins the TdS with a Wild Card.
The team has been able to reinforce itself with several riders from the top level. Besides the French climbers and ex-AG2R riders Alexandre Geniex (3x stage winner at the Vuelta) and Pierre Latour (stage winner at the Vuelta), the Norwegian triple Tour de France stage winner Edvald Boasson Hagen and the Spaniard Victor de la Parte will also be riding for TotalEnergies.
The team’s biggest coup, however, was the signing of the Slovakian three-time World Champion Peter Sagan. Until now has won at least one stage of the Tour de Suisse every time he has competed. He alone holds the record of Tour de Suisse stage victories with 17, surpassing the likes of Swiss greats Fabian Cancellara, Hugo Koblet and Ferdy Kübler.
