List of riders starting Paris-Nice 2017 (March 5-12, 2017)

TAGS:

After trips to the Tour Down Under and the Abu Dhabi Tour, Paris-Nice sees the first WorldTour stage race to take place in Europe in 2017.

Last year’s winner Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) will not return as he focuses on the Giro d’Italia. However, 2016 runner-up Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) heads up Trek’s squad and he will face opposition from the likes of Richie Porte (BMC), Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo), Simon Yates (Orica-Scott) and Romain Bardet (Ag2r).

The provisional Paris-Nice start list may be subject to change prior to the race start.

  • Huw

    I like the look of this Sky team. Good spread of abilities, and nice to see Geraint Thomas get some more leadership practice. I’m not so sure its a race winner but its a really good early season leg/ mind stretcher

  • weccy

    Will take some time to get my head round some of these team changes mais c’est la vie
