The French Pro Team is a new squad on the Pro Tour, but they are already well known in France since they are the oldest French Ski Team.
"Team Vercors Isere is the oldest Team in France. It was created in 1998, so it's the 25th anniversary this year. We always had a double goal: help the traditional cross-country skiers return to the World Cup and perform and win long-distance races in France as a first step," says Pro Team Director Remi Salacroup and adds:
"We have been organized this way since the beginning. The idea now is to be open more internationally by going to Ski Classics while maintaining performances in France. We know that Ski Classics is now the unmissable Tour if we want to perform internationally."
