FDJ

French UCI WorldTour team FDJ will be known as Groupama-FDJ from the start of the upcoming season.

The formation announced the arrival of a new first name sponsor in an interview with team manager Marc Madiot published on its official website on Wednesday.

"I am proud to be the manager of Groupama-FDJ," he said. "The arrival of Groupama, a major player on the French sports scene, in addition to our partner FDJ is great news for the cycling sport and also for the team, as we will get the means to be stronger and more competitive.

"The team, the technical staff and the riders are ready to add a new page to our history."

French sports paper l'Equipe reports that the team's budget will increase by a significant amount of 30 percent for the coming three years, which will allow for major improvements and in both signings and infrastructure.

The team colors will reportedly remain the same, despite the green house colours of Groupama.
