Française des Jeux (FDJ) will line up at Paris-Nice without Bradley McGee who had high ambitions for Sunday's prologue in Issy-les-Moulineaux where he took third last year. The Australian is struggling with sinus and ear infections since he returned from the world cup track event in Manchester two weeks ago.
He plans to resume racing in Cholet-Pays de Loire on March 25. FDJ will be built around Philippe Gilbert, Sandy Casar and Thomas Lövkvist for the Race to the Sun.
