The News
 : A professional cyclist since 2005, Hubert Dupont is preparing to participate in the Grand Prix Cycliste La Marseillaise for the twelfth time.

Romain Bardet is ready and he will take part to the Grand Prix La Marseillaise on next Sunday :

 “My winter preparation went perfectly, without injury, without illness, and with the constant goal of continuing to progress well in all areas.
My most recent training camp in Castellon (Spain) was successful. We have a strong and engaged group, which can only pay dividends the whole season. I chose to move forward my return to competition by a few days because I feel so ready.
It’s always nice to start the season in France, in a race that I like a lot, and one that has a difficult enough course at the finish to put in a real race. It is also a good way to get into sync right away with Tony Gallopin, whose talent, wit, and experience will be a huge asset to our group.
I still have some work to do before I get to my optimum form, but I am attacking 2018 with a lot of confidence and calmness.”
