Bryan Coquard leads Cofidis on a second Grand Tour into Vuelta a Espana

Cofidis have announced their lineup for the Vuelta a Espana and they will be on the hunt for stage wins. The French team is headlined by Bryan Coquard who tackles his second Grand Tour after a successful Tour de France.

There he finished third in the points classification, showed good form and was present in both bunch sprints and breakaways. The sprinter has only raced the Vuelta once in his career but will have good chances of netting his first stage win this time around as he is well suited to the tough sprint days ahead and the field is very modest. He will have Davide Cimolai as a leadout man in those days.

However a lot of the team's focus remains on the many hilly and mountainous days. Jesús Herrada is the other main weapon the team brings to try and net stage wins. François Bidard, André Carvalho, José Herrada, Rubén Fernandéz and Rémy Rochas complete the French team's '8'.
