Keeping with tradition, Cofidis will field a team loaded with climbers for the Vuelta a Espana. Daniel Navarro will lead the a roster and can count on support from Jerome Coppel, Christophe Le Mevel, Yoann Bagot, Luis Angel Mate and Guillaume Levarlet in the mountains.

 

Cofidis delivered a poor showing in the Tour de France and now hope to make amends when they line up for the second and final grand tour, the Vuelta a Espana. Daniel Navarro will again be the leader of a team that is mostly made up of climbers.

 

Navarro went into the Tour on the back of a top 10 result in 2013 but had to abandon the race due to illness. He goes into the Vuelta with a dual focus as he both wants to win a stage in the mountains, preferably in his native Asturias, and finish in the top 10 overall.

 

He can count on support from Jerome Coppel and Christophe Le Mevel who have both finished in the top 15 in past grand tours. However, the pair is unlikely to focus on the GC and will probably set the sights on a stage win.

 

Yoann Bagot, Guillaume Levarlet and Luis Angel Mate will provide more firepower in the mountains, with the latter being keen to build on the solid showing in the Tour de France. Romain Hardy will combine his climbing skills with his fast finish to target the hilly stages.

 

For the flatter days, the team have Gert Joeaar and Romain Zingle at their disposal but they won't field a sprinter. Instead, the team will probably ride aggressively in a quest to take the elusive stage victory that will be their main goal.
