Team FDJ – Giro A new machine and a great start !

The FDJ riders have got off to a great start in this year’s Giro. With Geniez, Elissonde and Reza each accorded a brand new Lapierre Xelius SL to put to the test, they were keen to get out on the front from the word Go!



The group time trial on Saturday saw a very respectable 8th place for Team FDJ. This was followed by a difficult day on Sunday, with lots of falls, that the FDJ riders managed to escape unharmed! Geniez and his Xelius SL then had a fantastic day on Tuesday. He got in the breakaway of 30 riders, finishing in 14th place and is now 17th in the overall classification. It remains to be seen what the rest of the race will bring…


More information on the Xelius SL will be released at the end of May.
