He is best known for his efforts in the spring classics where he has finished 14th in the 2017 Tour of Flanders and the 2017 Paris–Roubaix. His best result in a monument came at the 2011 Milan–San Remo where he finished 7th after trying a late attack. He has competed in the Tour de France on two occasions, in 2017 and 2018, where he was often seen in the breakaway. Offredo is a user of the popular fitness site Strava, where he posts regular rides from his training and races.[2]

Career[edit]

Française des Jeux (2008–2016)[edit]

Offredo turned professional with Française des Jeux in 2008, after riding as a stagiaire with the team in 2007.

In 2010, Offredo finished 16th at Milan–San Remo, after attacking solo on the Poggio di San Remo. He also finished 3rd in the Pro Tour Classic GP Ouest France – Plouay. He started in the Vuelta a España which was his first Grand Tour start. He abandoned the race on stage 10. Offredo also finished 7th in Paris–Tours.[3]

In the first Belgian classics race of the 2011 season, Offredo finished 4th at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.[4] One month later, he started at Milan–San Remo, and finished 7th; his best result in a monument classic.[5] A week later he started Gent–Wevelgem and just missed out on the top 10, with an 11th-place finish, despite a crash earlier in the race. After the race, it was found that he had suffered a heel injury, and as a result, he had to miss the Tour of Flanders.[6]

After missing three whereabouts tests, Offredo received a 1-year ban at the start of the 2012 season.[7] Upon his return to professional cycling in 2013, he finished 5th in the French National Road Race Championships.

Wanty–Groupe Gobert (2017–present)[edit]

In the 2017 season, Offredo turned out for the Belgian Professional Continental team, Wanty–Groupe Gobert.[8] He achieved some of his best results during the classics campaign, with a 14th place in both the Tour of Flanders and Paris–Roubaix. He also rode the Tour de France for the first time, and attacked on several stages. On Stage 2, Offredo got in the breakaway, and won the Combativity award, after a late attack from the breakaway with Taylor Phinney.[9] He was also in the breakaway on Stage 10 with fellow Frenchman, Élie Gesbert.

Offredo started his 2018 season at the Grand Prix d'Ouverture La Marseillaise where he finished in 20th position. His best result in the 2018 season came in February where he placed 13th at the Vuelta a Murcia. At the end of March, Offredo suffered from a sprained ankle, which made him abandon the Tour of Flanders. Offredo started his second Tour de France, and was in the breakaway on the opening stage, securing the Combativity award just as he did in on the first mass start stage in 2017. Offredo was also in the breakaway on Stage 7 but as the stage was 231 kilometres (144 miles) long, and as he was the only man in the breakaway, he quickly returned to the peloton.
