Bouygues Telecom Bbox launched

The 2009 Bouygues Telecom Bbox team was presented on Thursday in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, the headquarters of the telecommunications sponsor. Team manager Jean-Rene Bernaudeau laid out ambitious goals for the team this season. "The message is clear: at the end of the season, I do not want my team to have regrets. ... We can not meet the same frustrations this year as we did in the Tour de France last year."

Bernaudeau hopes to get more victories by more riders this year, and wants the team to take home the French National Championship and ride that jersey to two stages in the Tour de France.

To that end, he recruited some new talent like William Bonnet and Pierre Rolland, the winner of the mountains classification in the Dauphiné Libéré, both of the now dead Credit Agricole team.

Bouygues Telecom Bbox 2009: Yukiya Arashiro, Julien Belgy, Giovanni Bernaudeau, Olivier Bonnaire, William Bonnet, Franck Bouyer, Steve Chainel, Mathieu Claude, Pierrick Fedrigo, Damien Gaudin, Cyril Gautier, Yohann Gène, Said Haddou, Vincent Jerome, Arnaud Labbe, Laurent Lefèvre , Guillaume Le Floc'h, Rony Martias, Alexandre Pichot, Perrig Quemeneur, Pierre Rolland, Matthieu Sprick, Sébastien Turgot and Thomas Voeckler, Evgeny Sokolov and Yuriy Trofimov, Johann Tschopp.
