AG2R sprinter Jean-Patrick Nazon may not start Paris-Nice because he is ill. Nazon has hardly ridden since the Tour Méditerranéen, only returning to training on Friday after a course of antibiotics was required to shift a particularly stubborn case of bronchitis.

The team will decide Thursday or Friday whether Nazon is fit to ride, and Alexandre Usov will step in if Nazon is insufficiently recovered.

At the moment, however, AG2R plans to field the following riders for Paris-Nice: Mikel Astarloza, Inigo Chaurreau, Cyril Dessel, Andy Flickinger, Stéphane Goubert, Jean-Patrick Nazon, Nicolas Portal and Ludovic Turpin.
