Not known as a sprinters team, Ag2r will head into the Vattenfall Cyclassics hoping that Davide Appollonio can make use of his good form to score a top result. Samuel Dumoulin leads the team's roster for the Tour du Limousin and Classic de l'Indre.

 

In 2014, Ag2r has had a lot of success on the WorldTour but their major results have mostly been taken in stage races. They have performed mostly anonymously in the classics but hope to turn things around on Sunday in the Vattenfall Cyclassics which is usually a race for sprinters.

 

The team will be led by Davide Appollonio who recently showed solid condition in the Eneco Tour even though he failed to come away with a top result. Ben Gastauer, Matteo Montaguti and Alexis Gougeard will try to ride opportunistically in the finale while Julien Berard, Hugo Houle, Julian Kern and Gediminas Bagdonas will be on hand to offer support.

 

Tomorrow another part of the team will be in action in the first stage of the Tour du Limousin which is known for its undulating terrain that suits the strong sprinters. Samuel Dumoulin is perfectly suited to this race and will be the team leader. He can rely on support from fellow sprinter Maxime Daniel while Houle, Berard, Guillaume Bonnafond, Steve Chainel, Axel Domont and stagiaire Jimmy Raibaud complete the roster.

 

On Sunday most of the same team will be action in the Classic de l'Indre which is usually a straightforward race for sprinters. Again Dumoulin and Daniel will be on hand for the expected bunch sprint while stagiaire Nico Denz and grand tour star Jean-Christophe Peraud will replace Houle and Berard who will be at the start in Hamburg.
