The French team of Romain Bardet, who has finished on the Tour de France podium twice in recent years, is also the home of the two Swiss riders Mathias Frank and Silvan Dillier.
Riding in the colours of the Swiss champion, Dillier showed his aggression and determination during various breakaways in last year’s tour.
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 he fulfil his childhood dream this year and win a major tour on home soil?
We’ll certainly be keeping our fingers crossed for him.
This season will also see Larry Warbasse, a former stage winner, line up for the French team.
