New start for the Direct Energie Team in 2018 !
Despite the retirement of Thomas Voeckler, the team will be armed for long breakaways and races with rugged profile this year. Based on the experience of Sylvain Chavanel and Lilian Calmejane (winner of the Tour de France 2017), the yellows and black will be regularly at the front, with the fighting spirit that has known them for many years.
At training, the riders, who contributed to the new Fusion 5 Eleven Storm development, will continue to work closely with our R&D department. In race, they will use Pro Tour tubular tires specially designed by our Race Service to meet the requirements of the highest level !
"We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Hutchinson. We already had very good results last year. It's important fo us to know that we can count on excellent tire quality". Jean René Bernaudeau, Team Manager.
