Thibaut Pinot will ride the double Giro d'Italia-Tour de France for the second year in a row. The rider of Groupama-FDJ will use the Giro to arrive at the Tour in good condition.

The Frenchman, who has won two stages and stepped on the podium of the Tour de France, will be leading the team in both races.

Groupama-FDJ manager Marc Madiot confirmed the first part of the calendar for Pinot to French newspaper L'Equipe. The program of the rider was designed to "make a beautiful Giro and then he can go on the Tour de France in good conditions," he explained.

The rider will have a lighter program than in previous years, including races like the Tour des Alpes and the Tour du Haut-Var to then go to do a good job in the Giro that "will lead him to be in good form for the French race".
