Tour de France team to open bike shop close to Roubaix

The management behind the Belgian team Wanty-Groupe Gobert is to open a bike shop next month. The team has today finished its first ever Tour de France.

The Want You Bike store will be on the banks of the Schelde river in Tournai, seven kilometres from Roubaix in France.

The 1,000 square metre shop is headed by general manager Jean-François Bourlart and will stock Cube, the official partner of the Pro-Continental team. It will also stock French e-bike brand Mustache.

24 Quai des Vicinaux in Tournai is an industrial area, without other retailers.

Wanty-Groupe Gobert’s Yoann Offredo won the combativity award for a day out in front on the stage that ended in Liege with Marcel Kittel taking the win in a bunch finish.
