Frenchman Lilian Calmejane (29 year old), the double Grand Tour stage winner, will represent Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux during the next two seasons. He thus signed his first contract with a team abroad.
Lilian Calmejane made an interesting entry in the pro peloton by winning a stage from the breakaway in the Tour of Spain 2016 on the final climb towards San Andrés de Teixido. He repeated this stunt the next season in the Tour de France on the Station des Rousses, a couple of months after winning the polkadot jersey in Paris-Nice.
The allround rider with agressive racing style also won the Étoile de Bessèges, the Settimana internazionale Coppi e Bartali and the Circuit de la Sarthe thanks to solo stage victories and French cup races such as the Drôme Classic (2018), Paris-Camembert (2018) and the Faun-Ardèche Classic (2019).
