Been through every year of FDJ's existence and there doesn't appear to be a single rider who was ever on the team who raced before 2000, has the requisite flag, only missed the Giro of the GTs and didn't podium his respective NCRR. Are you sure you haven't accidentally put a yes instead of a no somewhere or vice versa?
 
Did he retire before his 30th birthday? No
Is his surname a common first name in some countries? Not that I know of

Are you sure you haven't accidentally put a yes instead of a no somewhere or vice versa? Pretty sure. Besides, lots of riders on FDJ races before 2000; the team was founded in 1997!
