Paris - Nacer Bouhanni, winner of three stages and the points classification on the recent Giro d'Italia, has not been retained by the FDJ.fr team for next month's Tour de France.

The 2012 French champion, out of contract at the end of the year, has not named on the team's ten-rider list for the race from July 5-27.

The FDJ.fr will be based around sprinter Arnaud Demare and Thibaut Pinot, team sporting director Marc Madiot confirmed.
