A French team created in 1997, Cofidis have yo-yoed up and down the WorldTour and ProConti ranks for over two decades. The team was created by legendary directeur sportif Cyrille Guimard, who earned his reputation managing Bernard Hinault, Greg LeMond and Laurent Fignon at the Renault team in the 1980s.

They’ve nabbed 12 Tour de France stage wins in their history through the breakaway handiwork of David Millar, Sylvain Chavanel and David Moncoutié. However, only one of their riders has ever finished on a Grand Tour podium - Bobby Julich at the 1998 Tour de France. And only one of their riders has ever won a Monument - Frank Vandenbroucke at the 1999 Liége-Bastogne-Liége.

That said, after a successful 2022 season which saw them win 19 races and bag a stage victory at the Vuelta a España, courtesy of the evergreen Jesús Herrada, the team looks as though they may be turning a corner. A lot of pressure will be heaped on the young Frenchman Alex Zingle’s shoulders in 2023, as well as those of the team’s more experienced riders, like Ion Izagirre, Simon Geschke and Guillaume Martin.
