The Frenchman, who was fourth in the Giro d'Italia, will support GC hopefuls Nicolas Roche and Jean-Christophe Peraud and look for success on mountain stages.

Roche launched a withering attack on Gadret in an Irish newspaper column during last year's Tour after the 30-year-old refused to give his wheel on stage 15 after the Irishman suffered a puncture on the final climb of the day.
