Rein Taaramae of Estonia, who finished 11th overall last year while riding in his second Tour de France and veteran David Moncoutie, a two-time stage winner, will lead the French Cofidis squad in the Tour de France.
Taaramae, 25, who narrowly missed the young rider classification title last year, recently claimed his national time trial title. Last year, following his strong Tour de France effort, Taaramae claimed a Tour of Spain stage.
Moncoutié, 37, wasn’t expected to compete in the Tour de France again after showing more success in recent years in the Tour of Spain.
Cofidis recently confirmed team sponsorship through 2016.
Cofidis 2102 Tour de France roster:
David Moncoutié, Rein Taaramae, Remi Di Grégorio, Samuel Dumoulin, Nicolas Edet, Julien Fouchard, Jan Ghyselinck, Luis Angel Mate and Romain Zingle.
