I guess I am a bit late posting this seeing AG2R now do have their first win but I did not get AG2R's favoritism in this thread. A couple of years ago they were seriously lacking in sprinters but over the last two years they have tried to address that. While they do not have a top class sprinter they have recruited Appollonio, Manuel Belletti, Samuel Dumoulin, Yauheni Hutarovich. With this group I would be surprised if they did not win a lot more racing.
The climbing group has always been fairly strong although no real top quality rider. In Betancur and Bardet they have two young riders who could do well in one day races or smaller stage races. Pozzovivo will be very interesting to watch as well, while Peraud and Gadret might do something as well.
I feel AG2R had a clear weakness in their squad and have worked to address it. While it did not bear much fruit last year I feel they should reap the rewards this year and they are clearly a World Tour quality team.
