In an interview with the Agritubel team website, Moreau said about the 2008 edition of the Tour de France: "I prefer the years when we race against the clock, like in 2008. The Alps in the second part of the Tour suit me better. There are not to many flat stages, there are early medium mountain stages. This reduce the risks of crashes and this course favours attacks and baroudeurs. Anyway, I want to win at Superbesse, its the region where my wife hails from."

About his new team Agritubel the current French national road champion said: "A change of team is always challenging. Meeting new people, new ways of working. At Agritubel the staff and the riders are motivated to achieve a superb 2008 season." 

Moreau won the overall of the Dauphiné Libéré twice and several top ten results in the French stage race. Moreau said: "Its a period that suits me well, it is the last big rehearsel before the Tour. There are beautiful mountain stages, in which I can show myself and compete with the best riders of that moment."

Moreau is proud to ride in his national colours: "I was not ready to hang up my bike this year. Not with the French national champion jersey on my shoulders." Moreau added that there are also "still great things to be done with the Agritubel jersey."
