The GP de Marseille is the traditional opener of the French road race season. It will be the first race of French National Champion Christophe Moreau for Agritubel. Mitsubishi-Jartazi will start with Hans Dekkers, Stefan van Dijk and Frank Vandenbroucke (VDB). VDB seemed to be in good form during Mitsubihi's training camp and won the race in 1999. Landbouwkrdiet will start with Tom Steels, while Nico Eeckhout leads Topsport Vlaanderen. Last years winner, Jeremy Hunt won't start.

David Kopp will also start for Cycle-Collstrop. Defending champ Nick Nuyens will not start at this years Etoile de Besseges.
