What a weird statement. I would call 2017 a good year for France. Bardet on the podium in Paris, Pinot confirmed as Grand Tour contender (only 1:17 behind the Giro winner), plenty of wins for Demare. Career best season for Barguil and breakthrough season for Calmejane, both winning stages at the Tour. With Gaudu you have one of the hottest prospects and a healthy Alaphilippe is a force to be reckoned with. Most other nations would be jealous.Alexandre B. said:What an awful year for us.
No victories of significance, only stage wins.
