Cédric Vasseur, the brains behind the Cofidis operation has expressed his confidence that the team is only going to get better in the upcoming years after progressing to tenth in the UCI World Tour Rankings at the end of 2022.
"The objective is to extend the current dynamism and stay among the ten best teams in the world," Vasseur says in a press release. "We feel that the value of Cofidis is increasing over the years. I think we have everything to maintain our rate of progress in the UCI World Tour."

Cofidis had a relatively successful 2022 season that included a stage victory at the Vuelta a Espana from Jesus Herrada and more recently Bryan Coquard's success at the fifty-first Tour de Vendee. "I am a delighted manager," says Vasseur, a two-time stage winner at the Tour de France himself.
Key to Cofidis achieving the success they so desire in the upcoming campaign will be their biggest hope in terms of the general classification at Grand Tours, Guillaume Martin. Speaking after the Cofidis training camp in Denia, Spain, Martin says "The course went really well. It's always an important moment to start the season. We took advantage of the weather conditions we were expecting to ride for more than thirty hours this week. The atmosphere was meeting: it was also an opportunity to get together with the various Cofidis teams (men's, women's and disabled), which doesn't happen often in the year. We worked hard on the bike and we spent good times outside."
