Evita Muzic and Maëlle Grossetête are the latest additions to FDJ – Nouvelle Aquitaine – Futuroscope. Muzic, 18, is the 2017 French junior National Champion while Grossetête, 19, in her first year outside the junior ranks placed 10th in the French National Championship Time Trial.

“The recruitment of Evita and Maëlle is part of our training plan,” said DS Stephen Delcourt.

“In fact we have set up follow-up and training throughout the 2017 season to benefit 7 French talents from our expertise in addition to our historical actions with young people from the new aquitaine committee. Our two Sports Directors have done an excellent job with these young people and have decided to integrate two young talents from 2018 in our workforce. We wish to accompany them in the long term.

“We would like to thank and highlight the excellent work of their club, without whom nothing would be possible. We will continue to strengthen our training activities in 2018 to prepare for the 2024 Generation Paris.”
