    I remember scouring bike shops far and wide for their original kit by Sibille.

    Loved the tricolours across the shoulder and off set lettering down the sides.

    I eventually found it and the matching silver shorts.

    Quote
    Yoann Offredo (FDJ, 1986), without becoming a major star in 2010 and 2011 embodied the spirit of French cycling: young, courageous, intelligent and gradually approaching the good, the best. However, a triple infringement ADAMS location in 2012 interrupted a career that flattered the French. "This season I want to be in line with 2011, continuing my progression. Last season I had to recover my goals, which could prove to be back there. But this 2014 will be different, it's a reunion, "he explains in an interview Offredo VéloChrono . Offredo received his punishment after the Tour of Qatar 2012. After the race catarí 2013 he returned to the competition. And again in the emirate aims to build round his return. "In a year I've improved so much. I have improved 10% my aerobic maximum power: it is a fact that gives me a lot of moral, means I'll get my 2011 level and even surpass, "says French. Offredo has grown dressed in the colors of the Française des Jeux. Although team manager Marc Madiot on occasion he protested their lack of reading and precipitation tactical race, acquired an important status in the team as the classic reference. But that reality has changed. "This situation is different from 2011, of course, but having a strong team for the cobbled classics may not be a problem. Now we have the trick of sprint with Arnaud DEMARE. And we also have to Ladagnous who took my place during my punishment [5th last year in the Tour of Flanders]. But we can complement Mathieu is different, closer to gamble at the end corridor, I love the attacks, would say I'm a romantic corridor. I love it when behind victory is a story, I am not big sprints. We can move in different scenarios, "he says.


    The French rider suffered a fall yesterday in the Tour of Qatar and finished with the left scapula eroded, although x-rays ruled out any fracture which in principle will continue to race.

    Why do we love Offredo so much, those of us that do? For me, it has nothing to do with his waspish good looks or his heartbreaking screw-ups and crashes. It is his style of riding, folks. He is an aggressive, attacking rider who would do well in future to keep his powder dry for a little longer if he wants to win a Classic. He rides with guts and, with Boucher and Ladagnous, can often be seen tackling the last third at or near the front.

    FDJ always seems to do well in the placings in the big Classics and the team earns a lot of its annual points tally this way. Mainstays like Ladagnous will sneak into the top 10 almost unseen through consistent riding and, dare I say it, through being underestimated.

    Démare represents a different prospect though. If Bouhanni is FDJ's Kittel (bear with me on this ;)), then Démare is Degenkolb. He can be a contender in the future once he morphs out of the pure sprinter mould he befits as a youngster.

    Well, Boucher is out and it's important to remember that Démare is only 22. He might not be a prodigy on a par with Sagan but he has bags of potential and to start the Classics as a team leader at that age points to his precocity as much as it perhaps does to FDJ's lack of depth.

    of course larri was more meaning the use of the heading and the text Demare to lead FDJ challenge then to be mentioned as a group of 3 leaders.
    The 3 leaders make sense the heading not

    Hardly a surprise. In Demare and Bouhanni they have the same rider twice, both with similar targets for the season. If you pick your first choice the other is sure to be unhappy.

    mmh, I think Demare is more suited to the classics, so it's a bit like the situation with Kittel & Degenkolb at Giant (which is working pretty well). But in this case, both are french and propably want to be leader for the Tour de France, so that's the main problem I guess

    Or Nutcase with a anger issue think I heard both, riders on FDJ get pretty peeed at Nacer apparently, so while he wins he is not liked for his aggressive nature on the team bus.

    wins a lot though so should be ok

    Dunno about Bouhanni but he certainly doesn't come from the same recherché background as some of the other FDJ youthgroomed stablehorses.

    In other news, I am a little worried about FDJ's results so far in Belgium. Hoping for more visibility this weekend.

    Speak of the Devil...

    Bouhanni unhappy after non-selection for Milan-San Remo, CN today

    He wins races for the team but this only confirms to me that he doesn't really fit in at FDJ. It is a warning shot designed to get him a better deal for 2015.

    The two-bit punk schtick (flyweight boxer trash-talking tough guy) is kind of interesting but as a rider he lacks the broader potential of Démare at this point and there are way too many precocious talents at FDJ for Madiot to handle a Kittel-Degenkolb-Mezgec sort of balancing act (which is why I think, in the latter case, that Barguil will soon leave Giant-Shimano like Geniez before him).

    So, Bouhanni benched for the remainder of 2014 following unsavoury comments in a L'Equipe interview last Saturday:

    http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/report-fdj-drops-bouhanni-after-french-interview

    No love lost there, then. So what did pro cycling's favourite split-brow, gaptooth pugilist say to get Marc 'Angry Pants' Madiot, well, angry?

    As the publisher of the "offending" interview, L'Equipe probably relished the news and quotes the following from Saturday's magazine:

    http://www.lequipe.fr/Cyclisme-sur-route/Actualites/La-fdj-fr-punit-bouhanni/498082

    Quote
    I didn't like how things were going in the last year ... They made me stew the whole season ... I blame Madiot for letting me drift ... When I wasn't sure what was going on, there was nobody around to fill me in ... To me, in this life it seems like when you're not doing so well, the boss' response is just to deliver a low blow, to kick you in the arse.

    Never slow with the facile boxing analogies, L'Equipe reports that Bouhanni was called by Madiot and quietly left the Vuelta, telling the publication that he had taken a punch.

    Cycling is a small world and it functions on consensus. That consensus holds, among other things, that it is better not to burn bridges, which is precisely what makes Bouhanni's (admittedly rather mild) "trash talk" as risky as it is refreshingly different.

    It does seem pretty much a non event.

    I was thinking last week amazing how they have Nacer riding the Vuelta, JV would have stopped him riding in July

    And then last days Cycling's biggest nose leaves FDJ and the twitter account says thanks and I thought that was brilliant.
