Team Total Direct Énergie, formerly Bonjour, Bouygues and Europcar, is a French male road cycling team. Active in professional road cycling since 2000, it is a licensed UCI Professional Continental Team.
Set up by former professional racer Jean-René Bernaudeau, it boasts multiple participations in the Grand tours, with ten stage victories in the Tour de France, four of which with Thomas Voeckler and three with Pierrick Fédrigo, and a fourth final place again with Thomas Voeckler in the 2011 edition of the Grande Boucle. The company is based in Les Essarts, in the Vendée region, and has since the 2020 season picked Ursus as its technical partner and official bicycle wheel supplier for its champions.
Ursus wheels will complete the team edition construction of this remarkable Wilier Triestina Zero SLR bicycle. For the Total Direct Energie team, we have developed the color “admiral blue” with a metallic finish, perfectly paired with the coloring of the Wilier bicycle.
The Total Team will train and compete from 2020 with different Ursus products. The Miura TS47 Evo Disc and Miura TS37 Evo Disc wheels will be used by the team in most of the season’s races. The 47 mm and 37 mm carbon profiles, paired with the new RD40 center lock hub with straight-head spokes, will guarantee maximum performance to the athletes of the Total Direct Energie team.
In addition, it makes available to the Team the Miura TR Disc and Miura TC Disc line. The design of these rims for disc brakes was conceived to be more aerodynamic and to remain stable even with lateral wind conditions.
The Total Direct Energie team will be supplied with both the models for tubular tires (Miura TR37 Disc and Miura TR67 Disc) and those for clincher / tubeless tires (Miura TC37 Disc and Miura TC67 Disc).
