The Cofidis - Le Crédit par Téléphone squad has held a small official presentation of its 2008 roster in Paris, France overnight. The French ProTour team held a low key affair, with team management and a selection of its 2008 roster addressing the assembled media, completing interviews and posing for photos.

The entire team weren't able to make the official presentation, with a selection of riders absent as they head for Australia, where the ProTour season will start unusually early with the Tour Down Under. The French outfit has sent Mickaël Buffaz, Jean Eudes Demaret, Nicolas Hartmann, Yann Huguet, Amaël Moinard, David Moncoutié and Sébastien Portal to contest the Australian event, the first ProTour round outside of Europe.
