Pierre Rolland was announced in EF Education First-Drapac‘s Tour de France squad to support Rigoberto Urán‘s overall general classification challenge. The Frenchman will line-up in Noirmoutier-en-l’Ile to start his tenth consecutive Tour de France.
The Frenchman has three top-10 finishes at the race, two stage victories, as well as a white jersey on his palmares, but will be focused on Urán bettering his second-place finish from last year’s race in 2018.
While EF Education First-Drapac switched from green argyle to bright pink jerseys for the 2018 season, the team has retained the classic green and black Cannondale design on its all-round race bikes, the Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod.
The simple, understated frameset is paired with all-carbon finishing kit from FSA, Vision and Prologo, while 40mm carbon wheels — also from Vision — are paired with Vittoria Corsa tubular tyres.
Shimano provides the team bikes with Dura-Ace R9100 series components for shifting and braking, while Cannondale’s proprietary SISL crankset is paired with an SRM power meter.
