David Gaudu stepped up a level during 2021 but the 25-year-old Groupama-FDJ rider and rising star of French cycling  is looking to do even better in 2022 as he continues his journey from Thibaut Pinot's understudy to team leader. 

Last season he came third at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, fifth (including a stage win) at the Tour of the Basque Country, and delivered top 10 finishes at the Flèche-Wallonne and the Tour of Lombardy. For 2022, he is looking forward to the Ardennes Classics and the Tour de France, where he will share the role of team leader with Pinot and Michael Storer.
