AG2R Citroën Team 2022 and Their Bikes
Ben O’Connor finishing 4th at 2021 Tour de France GC is definitively giving the AG2R Citroën Team some motivation for the 2022 Tour de France. The strategy is clearly to get on the podium of the Tour.
The team is well balanced with nearly 50% of the riders being climbers and the other being sprinters. Each group is able to give support to its team leader.
Ben O’Connor, Aurélien Paret-Peintre, Clément Champoussin are obvious names to watch. I think Dorian Godon is riding under the radar and will be interesting to watch.
There are many experienced riders in this team and their names will be among top ten in many classics and one day races.
VAN AVERMAET Greg, DEWULF Stan, NAESEN Oliver, RAUGEL Antoine, SCHÄR Michael, TOUZÉ Damien, VAN HOECKE Gijs are the selected riders for Paris-Roubaix 2022.
