Team Fortuneo-Vital Concept to ride Corima Carbone in 2017
French Pro Continental Cycling Team Fortuneo-Vital Concept have officially announced their partnership with Corima Carbone for the coming 2017 season. Having ridden the past 3 editions of Le Tour De France the 20 rider strong squad with a rich 20 year history within the sport are again a strong chance for a 4th wildcard to contest the 104th edition of La Grande Boucle starting in Düsseldorf, Germany on July 1st.
They will be looking for a strong performance in the sprints this year as focus shifts to full support of the 25 year old up and coming British speedster Dan McLay. He will be looking at the experience of 9 year pro and 3 time Tour de France finisher Florian Vachon as well as new signings Maxim Bouet and Romain Hardy to position the lead out train and give the team the best chance possible against the likes of the established sprinting powerhouses Andre Greipel, Marcel Kittel and Mark Cavendish. Don't be surprised to see the stripped Bretagne flag inspired jerseys and Corima Carbone equipped train of Fortuneo-Vital Concept on the front of the peloton mixing it up with the big budget World Tour squads in 2017.
Corima Carbone wheels are available now through the FE Sports selected dealer network throughout Australia.
