Ag2r La Mondiale has named a strong team to propel Romain Bardet to victory.

Swiss rider Silvan Dillier, who was second in Paris-Roubaix and Belgian Oliver Naesen will be important in the earlier stages with potential cross wind havoc and will be vitally important on stage 9 when the race hits the cobblestones.

Axel Domont, Tony Gallopin, Alexandre Geniez, Pierre Latour and Alexis Vuillermoz will be looking to support Bardet in the mountains with the latter one of the favourites for a couple of stages.
