Linked to the long-running men’s team of a similar name, FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine-Futuroscope are becoming OVO Energy Women’s Tour regulars, having ridden the previous two editions.

Yet to enjoy success in Britain’s most prestigious stage race, FDJ’s roster includes Swedish champion Emilia Fahlin, who can feature in bunch sprints despite being better known for her time trialling. German Lotte Becker won the Tour of Chongming Island stage race in China last year.
