Vincent Lavenu, general manager of the team: "To achieve an even fuller season

"In 2022, our team celebrates its thirtieth anniversary. It is essential to continue to look to the future by pursuing the dynamics that have stimulated us since 1992. Our history is first and foremost a human adventure in which each and every one of us, riders, members of the team management and partners, have contributed to the building of this AG2R CITROËN team, which is determined to shine on all the roads of the world. 2021 has been full of satisfaction with 12 victories, including a stage win in each of the three major tours. We are also proud to see the riders graduates of our training program become true champions and seasoned professionals. In 2022, our riders, supported by an increasingly professional coaching staff and with the support of loyal and involved partners, will aim to achieve an even fuller and more fruitful season with the enthusiasm and freshness that has animated us for 30 years."[/su_quote] [su_quote cite=]

Vincent Cobée, Chief Executive Officer of CITROËN : "Even more ambitious

"We are very proud to live this sporting adventure alongside AG2R LA MONDIALE and Vincent Lavenu's cycling team. The first year of our partnership has been intense in emotions, the team has achieved great performances with notable victories in the three major tours and confirmed its position as the leading French team on the world circuit. For this new season, we are confident in the team's potential and even more ambitious. Without a doubt, 2022 will be a landmark year. Not only will the team celebrate its 30th anniversary, but we will also be providing them with C5X, the new flagship of the Citroën range. The innovative C5X is the perfect embodiment of Citroën's philosophy, brilliantly combining the elegance of the sedan with the dynamism of the estate. I am sure it will be an asset to support the team's efforts in the season's major races."[/su_quote]
