Cyrille Guimard is hoping that the talented young Frenchman, Fabien Taillefer, will join his Roubaix Lille Metropole team for 2009. Taillefer, who won the junior edition of the 2007 Paris-Roubaix, has previously ridden for the Norman Pavilly-Barentin club and also spent some time at Quick Step.

Taillefer is known as a strong rider both in the mountains and in time trials. "He is a rider of a character that reminds me of Bernard Hinault," Cyrille Guimard said to the AFP. Hinault won the Tour de France five times during his career.
