Backed by its sponsor AG2R LA MONDIALE for over 20 years, the French team has maintained performances at the highest level worldwide, and since 2005 has been involved on the World Tour circuit. Riders such as Jaan Kirsipuu, Christophe Moreau, Jean-Christophe Péraud and many others have all made their contributions to writing this story. Today, led by Romain Bardet and Oliver Naesen, the AG2R LA MONDIALE team has 29 riders and has found success both in the Classics and stage races.
With three appearances on the Tour de France podium in the space of four years, Vincent Lavenu’s team has revealed all its potential in recent times. The AG2R LA MONDIALE team also boasts a high-performance, highly professional staff of around 70 people.
