France’s Euro Espoir team has a rather large Canadian connection, with five
Canucks on the squad, including Ian Condron, Ryder Hesjedal, Jean-Sebastien
Maheu, Chris Isaac, and Ryan Roth.
Unfortunately, the team has not been
accepted to participate in the Tour du Loir et Cher, its main focus in
previous years. Instead, it will take part in some one-day races during the
Tour’s schedule. Euro Espoir is also scheduled to compete in the Tour du
Nord-Isere Dauphine set for May 3 to 5.
