Double chance for a Grand Tour. With the busy schedule ahead for the end of the post-corona season, Groupama-FDJ has decided to send its star Thibaut Pinot to both the Tour de France (August 29 - September 20) but also a month later on the Tour of Spain (October 20 - November 8). A double rarely, of course, especially given the short rest time between the two events. Especially since Pinot should, unless surprised, be part of the French team that will conquer the rainbow jersey at the Worlds in Switzerland, a week after the end of the Great Loop.
Around Pinot, Groupama-FDJ has chosen to make David Gaudu, one of the revelations of the last Tour, its first lieutenant. In addition to the two major laps, the team will test itself in mid-August on the roads of the Dauphiné.
