I am writing this Team Cofidis 2022 Presentation with the objective to add links to each rider as I review their bike sizes over the year.
Team Cofidis is in the cycling peloton for 25 years already. Compared to some other UCI World Tour teams it is considered a “small” team. Team Cofidis is a 80 persons enterprise, all riders and staff included.
The team ended 2021 season ranked 15th on the UCI Teams Point ranking. Compared to 2020 when it ended 19th, good results are improving gradually.

Cofidis Team Strategy
Guillaume Martin ends best French in the Top 10 of the Tour de France 2021 and La Vuelta Espana 2021. His performances are getting better in the last two years. For 2022 he is planning to race the Giro D’Italia and the Tour de France.
I discovered Guillaume Martin (and Brandon Mc Nulty) in 2019 as he won the final stage of Il Giro di Sicilia 2019. I think he is currently the best French rider for a Grand Tour podium.
Ion Izagirre will be also a leader on the Tour de France 2022 and one week races like Tour de Suisse, Paris-Nice and Tour de Normandie.
Victor Lafay winning a stage on the Giro d’Italia for his first season in the World tour is also a great candidate for mountain stages wins .
The team leaders will be well supported with Anthony Perez and Rémy Rochas to chase stage wins on the Grand Tours.
Bryan Coquard is the sprinter of the team. He is targeting some Spring classics and sprint victories on the Grand Tours.
Benjamin Thomas will support Bryan Coquard in leading the sprint train. He will also serve as lieutenant to Guillaume Martin on the Grand Tours.
