Remco Evenepoel will race for the first time since his Itzulia Basque Country crash at the Critérium du Dauphiné, using the week-long French stage race to test his fitness and as a vital stepping stone towards the Tour de France.

The 24-year-old Belgian leads a Soudal Quick-Step team that includes many of the riders who will support him in July as he makes his Tour de France debut and targets overall success.
