Fortuneo-Samsic

France | Team website

Fortuneo-Samsic are a UCI Professional Continental-level cycling team from the Brittany region of northern France, formerly known as Bretagne-Séché Environnement.

The squad has its root in 2005, and has slowly grown into its current status as one of France’s top domestic squads. The accolade has seen them gain a wildcard invite to the Tour de France since 2014.

Due to their strong ties with Brittany, the squad largely consists of French riders. The team may lack major results, but its riders make up for this by getting involved in escape groups and attacks.

The signing of Warren Barguil for the 2018 season sealed the team’s invite to the Tour once more – with Barguil having claimed the overall king of the mountains title and two stage wins in 2017 on his way to finishing 10th overall.
