In 2013, Sinkeldam finished third overall and went close to taking a stage on more than one occasion. For 2014, he is joined by young sprinters Nikias Arndt (GER) and Jonas Ahlstrand (SWE) together with new signing Brian Bulgac (NED).
It will be Bulgac’s first stage race with the team and a good way for him to keep developing his teamwork with his new teammates.
The race is formed of five stages, which although generally flat present other difficulties such as nervous, narrow roads and high possibilities of crosswinds to cause havoc in the peloton.
“This is a race that the team likes and has done well in previously,” said coach Christian Guiberteau (FRA).
“We will target a stage win and we have Nikias and Ramon who are suited to the parcours, as well as Jonas who has come on a long way this year and took his first win in Sarthe.”
