Bouygues Telecom looking to the mountains

The Bouygues Telecom squad is a more mature unit than in recent years and is counting on this edition of the Tour de France to show its talent with team manager Jean-René Bernaudeau hoping his riders will figure in the mountain stages.

"This edition of the Tour will give us the opportunity to show we belong, knowing that cycling is cleaner than in the past," explained Bernaudeau to "What we have seen in the races for a few months encourages us to persevere with our efforts. And if the cycling world feels better, riders are less concerned and so the atmosphere is more favourable to good results."
