Whilst they may not be going into the race with a French leader, their French domestique Marie Le Net is confident in the team's chances at their home race.

Le Net, 22, joins the team in a support role for leader Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig and deputy leader Marta Cavalli. She told Cyclingnews that the yellow jersey is a possibility for the team.
