For a fourth consecutive season, Rémi’s fantastic sheer power and determination were put on display on countless occasions, as he continued to work for the team and help the Wolfpack pile up victories. His extraordinary physical abilities and continuous progress were underlined also on individual occasions, with the Frenchman from Clermont-Ferrand seizing the opportunity early, in February, at the Classic Sud-Ardèche, where he won in the rain by a huge margin.
In August, just three weeks after the season got underway again, he fulfilled a lifelong dream, becoming National ITT Champion and donning the tricolour, which he then showcased at the Tour de France. A silver medal at the European ITT Championships confirmed his credentials against the clock, but his season didn’t stop there and for the first time in his career Rémi rode two Grand Tour in the same year. In Spain, Cavagna was unleashed, featuring in the break on seven separate occasions and even coming close to a second stage win there, but even though he was denied, at the end of the day his efforts were not for nothing, as in Madrid he got to the podium, where he received the most combative rider of the race trophy.
