Bardet to be AG2R La Mondiale's sole leader at the Tour de France

The AG2R La Mondiale team is set to go into the 2016 Tour de France with just a single leader in the shape of Romain Bardet, who won a stage and finished ninth in this year’s race. Bardet has shared leadership of the French team at the Tour with Jean-Christophe Péraud in the past two seasons, but 2014 Tour runner-up Péraud is targeting a debut appearance at the Giro d’Italia in what is due to be his final season in the pro peloton.
