This page serves as a hub for Cycling Team Arkéa Samsic 2022. I will add links to each rider as I review their bike size and fitting over time.
With this page, I review the team plans for Paris-Roubaix and the two Grand Tours 2022; Le Tour and La Vuelta.
You can also find a brief presentation of the team bikes, and below I list the complete team of riders and Directeurs Sportifs.
Team Arkéa Samsic ended 2021 as the second-highest ranked UCI team in the Pro Team category behind Team Alpecin-Fenix. Ranking 15th in the UCI World Tour. That’s in front of bigger World Tour teams like Team Bike-Exchange, Intermarche-Wanty Gobert, EF Education, Lotto-Soudal, and DSM.

This second spot in the Pro Tour ranking earns Team Arkea Samsic its Wildcards to race the Tour de France and La Vuelta Espana 2022.
CAPIOT Amaury, DECLERCQ Benjamin, LOUVEL Matis, NOPPE Christophe, PICHON Laurent, RUSSO Clément, and SWIFT Connor are racing the Paris-Roubaix 2022.
QUINTANA Nairo, BARGUIL Warren, BOUET Maxime, CAPIOT Amaury, HOFSTETTER Hugo, LOUVEL Matis, SWIFT Connor, and OWSIAN Łukasz are heading the Tour de France 2022.
MCLAY Daniel, DELAPLACE Anthony, GESBERT Élie, GUERNALEC Thibault, GUGLIELMI Simon, QUINTANA Nairo, OWSIAN Łukasz, and RUSSO Clément are racing La Vuelta a Espana 2022.
The team declined the invitation to race the Giro d’Italia in order to focus on the other two Grand Tours. I think the team would have been better off racing the Giro for a potential General classification podium spot. This year the strongest teams are focussing on the tour de France and La Vuelta. Leaving the Giro more open to opportunist teams.
Arkéa Samsic team races mainly on Canyon Aeroad CFR. This model equally suits the sprinters and the climbers of the Bretagne-based team.
For Time Trials, the team races on the Canyon Speedmax TT CFR.
The bikes are assembled with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 12 speed 9200 groupsets. Wheels are Shimano Dura-Ace fitted with Continental Competition Pro Ltd tubulars and tubeless. Rim sizes and types depend on riders’ preferences and races profiles.
The rider’s three touchpoints are Selle Italia saddles, Canyon Cockpit CP 0018 (Handlebar/stem combo), and Shimano Dura-Ace pedals.
Whahoo provides the Elemnt RoamGPS head units and Shimano the PowerMeter.
The bottle cages and bidons are from Elite.
Team Arkéa Samsic wears Ekoi jerseys, bib-shorts, helmets, and gloves. The team doesn’t have a cycling shoe contract, so the shoe varies upon riders.
