After the presentation of the new organisation of the Team 18 Sapeurs-Pompiers (French Firemen Team) and the Yamaha R1 which will be the 2020 machine of the Team 18, here is the crew which will take the start at Le Castellet in a little more than 2 months for the 84th Bol d’Or on September 18-19-20, 2020. It is one of the few French teams to open the door for years to European riders such as Antonio Alarcos, Enrique (Kike) Ferrer. The trend is even more pronounced for this 2020 edition, which will also be the 20th anniversary of Team 18!
