Estonia's Tanel Kangert (EF Pro Cycling), Finland's Jaakko Hänninen (Ag2r La Mondiale), Lithuania's Ignatas Konovalovas (Groupama FDJ) and Latvia's Krists Neilands (Israel Start Up Nation) will start their season today with the French 4 day race Tour de la Provence. The first stage will be probably for sprinters and the other 3 days a more suited for climbers. The named guys are not the only Baltic riders in the tour, Estonia's Norman Vahtra (Israel Startu Up Nation) and Rein Taaramäe (Team Total Direct Energie) including Lithuania's Evaldas Šiškevičius (Nippo Delko One Provence) are in the mix too.
