Anthony Delaplace

Arkea Samsic

Demanding, perfectionist, Anthony has made his place in the professional peloton since 2010. Generous puncher, he proved it by winning twice the price of combativeness on the Tour de France (2015 &2016). 2017, he was deprived of his 7th Tour de France following a broken collarbone. A few months earlier, Anthony had returned to victory at home on the Tour of Normandy. He impressed by winning solo on the first stage & keeping his yellow leader's jersey all week. It was already on his land, where he had won the Polynormande 6 years earlier. To believe hat his region is successful for him : He won in 2017 on the Duo Normand with his teammate Pierre-Luc Périchon. To stop with the bike, it is towards gastronomy that the Norman turns. Maybe one day he will be a restaurateur, but by then he has set himself the goal of winning at least once far from Normandy.

Benoît Jarrier

Arkea Samsic

In society, Benoît Jarrier is not the loudest. Yet he is a go-getter. Legacy, perhaps, of a double sporting culture: cycling in the family, 24 Hours of Le Mans on the doorstep, 300 meters from his parents. So he attacks. 200 kilometers of breakaway in April 2014 on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix. And first striker of his first Tour de France three months later, as soon as the flag was lowered on leaving Leeds! Benoît wanted to complete this Tour,despite the suffering of a persistent sinusitis in the Alps. Fan of Novak Djokovic, he can show a formidable finish in a small group
