ASO, organizer of the Tour de France, Paris-Nice and the Criterium du Dauphine; has unveiled its last two wildcards for the races: Arkea-Samsic and B&B Hotels-Vital Concept.

The rules of the UCI state that all nineteen WorldTour teams are automatically invited to the races, as well as the leader of the 2019 classification of the UCI ProTeams -Total Direct Energie- but only for Paris-Nice and the Tour de France.

The new team of Nairo Quintana -who has finished twice in the second place of the final podium and once in the third position- will make an appearance in all three races. Arkea-Samsic also has in its formation riders like Warren Barguil -winner of the polka dot jersey in the 2017 Tour de France, and Nacer Bouhanni -who has won stages in races like the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, de Criterium du Dauphine and Paris-Nice.
