Track record: Rivalling the very best. Under various sponsors' names over the last 20 years, the team has enjoyed 13 stage wins and has had four riders spend a total of 16 days in yellow.
Leader: Jean-Christophe Peraud may be 37 but he hopes for a top-10 finish.
Changes since 2013: Having risen to fourth in the WorldTour standings, they have retained the majority of last year's team.
Target: The team have already publicly stated their target is to get two top 15 finishers, with one of them top 10. Individually, Christophe Riblon is targeting the yellow jersey early on and Romain Bardet will aim to build on his status as best-placed French rider in last year's Tour.
Full nine: Romain Bardet (France), Mikael Cherel (France), Samuel Dumoulin (France), Ben Gastauer (Luxuembourg), Blel Kadri (France), Sébastien Minard (France), Matteo Montaguti (Italy), Jean-Christophe Peraud (France) and Christophe Riblon (France).
