French sprinter Nacer Bouhanni's new lead-out train debuted yesterday on Twitter. Cyril Lemoine, Dominique Rollin, Jonas Ahlstrand, Adrien Petit and Geoffrey Soupe will drive team Cofidis’s red train through the 2015 season that will include the Tour de France.

The 24-year-old Frenchman sprinted to his first Grand Tour wins in 2014 - three stages in the Giro d'Italia and two in the Vuelta a España - but fell out with team FDJ's manager Marc Madiot. He wanted to race Milan-San Remo and the Tour de France, but Madiot also had sprinter Arnaud Démare.
