Warren Barguil is ready to lead Fortuneo-Samsic in his first race of the WorldTour calendar with his new team.

The Frenchman finished eighth in last year's edition of the race and wants to get another good placement in the General Classification. "Paris-Nice is the first big event of the season," said the rider. "There have been many changes this winter, a new team, a new coach, but soon I found my place in the Breton roster.

This season, Barguil has already started in French races like the Tour Cycliste International La Provence, the Classic de l'Ardeche Rhone Crussol and the Royal Bernard Drome Classic. "The races allowed me to regain my rhythm," he commented.

"I'm not great in the early season, but the form is coming back. I know I will be expected to show myself on Paris-Nice, but I won't change my way of riding. There are some nice stages at the end of the race, by then you have to concentrate and make the right choices."

Full line-up of Fortuneo-Samsic for Paris-Nice (4th to 11th of March):

Pierre-Luc Perichon
Kevin Ledanos
Maxime Bouet
Warren Barguil
Anthony Delaplace
Amael Moinard
Laurent Pichon
