Tony Gallopin and Alexis Vuillermoz are going to be the leaders of AG2R-La Mondiale at the Giro d'Italia. The riders will have a strong roster supporting them in their goals for the Italian grand tour.

The French team will start in the Corsa a Rosa with the objectives of taking a stage victory and achieving a top-ten position in the overall classification. "We are starting this Giro d'Italia with great ambitions," said Team Manager Vincent Lavenu.

"During their careers, both Alexis Vuillermoz and Tony Gallopin have proved that they are able to take victories at Grand Tours. And Tony proved last year at the Vuelta a España that he also has the ability to race for the general classification in a three-week event.

"He is a very professional racer, and I know he will be prepared for the toughest stages. In 2014, in his only participation in the Italian event, Alexis Vuillermoz made a strong impression (11th), while working for the team all along. In general, I want to see aggressive and uncomplicated racers taking on the 21 stages. I know that the entire team can achieve great things."

AG2R La Mondiale's roster for the Giro d'Italia (11th of May-2nd of June):

Alexis Vuillermoz
Tony Gallopin
Nico Denz
Hubert Dupont
François Bidard
Larry Warbasse
Nans Peters
Ben Gastauer
