Paris - Estonian national time trial champion Rein Taaramae will be the leading rider in the Cofidis team for this year's Tour de France which was unveiled on Monday.

The 25-year-old finished 11th on last year's Tour but has endured a difficult 2012 to date, including being struck down with glandular fever in March and then suffering a fractured elbow in April.

The Cofidis team is largely inexperienced but it does also feature 37-year-old Frenchman David Moncoutie, who will be taking part in his 11th Tour, 31-year-old Samuel Dumoulin and Remy Di Gregorio.
