I am writing this page about the Cofidis Cycling Team 2023. This is a specific page for the Cofidis WorldTour Men team as there are more teams that I will eventually write about on other dedicated pages.
The prime ambition of this page is to reference the Cofidis Cycling Team 2023’s riders, racing season plans, and team bikes specification.
Ultimately, I plan to write a review of the bike size and setup of each rider on the team.
It is a long goal, and I will keep updating the website throughout the season(s).

Four New Riders
For 2023 the Cofidis team has only four new riders joining the team and replacing the five leaving.
The new riders are Jonathan Lastra from Caja Rural – Seguros, Axel Mariault from Team U Nantes Atlantiques, Christophe Noppe from Arkea – Samsic, and Harrison Wood from AVC Aix-en-Provence.
Cofidis’s 2023 Season Plans
The Cofidis team is starting its WorldTour season with Coquard, Bidard, Cimolai, Lafay, Renard, Wood, and Carvalho in Australia on the Santos Tour Down Under 2023.
Geschke and Cimolai are racing Giro d’Italia 2023.
Geschke, Martin, Perichond, Zingle, and Thomas are riding on the Tour de France 2023.
Lastra and Herada are racing La Vuelta a Espana 2023.
The selection of riders for the Paris-Roubaix and the Grand Tours will be updated during the racing season based on the riders’ performances and form.
Look! A New Bike
The biggest news, or the news that most interests me, I should say, is the new bike sponsor of the team Cofidis.
For the season 2023, the Cofidis team is changing its bikes from the De Rosa to the french iconic LOOK bikes.
The team has also changed the components of the bikes for more French brands.
This choice can be understood as being a French team participating in the Tour de France, racing on a French brand is better accepted by the French general public in times of economical difficulties.
But, I won’t write much more about this topic as this is not the goal of this page.
The Cofidis team race the 2023 WorldTour with the new LOOK 796 RS bike.
The LOOK 796 RS is equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 12-speeds 9200 gears and disc brakes.
The crank arms are also from LOOK with SRM PowerMeter integrated and Kronos chainrings.
The wheels remains the same as in 2022, the Corima carbon wheels are rolling on Michelin tires.
The riders of the team Cofidis’s three touch points are the Selle Italia saddles, LOOK handlebar-stem, and LOOK Keo pedals.
Cofidis riders rely on the Wahoo cycling computer for their live data feed from their SRM PowerMeter.
The riders of the Cofidis team wear Ekoi helmets, Ekoi sunglasses, Van Rysel cycling jerseys, and bib shorts.
The team does not have cycling shoes sponsored at the team level. Each rider is free to use his best-fitting cycling shoes.
