Alex Baudin: "A childhood dream
"This is the culmination of a lot of hard work over many years. Joining the AG2R CITROËN team as a professional is the realization of a childhood dream. I was born in Savoie, I spent my junior years at Chambéry Cyclisme Compétition and the beginning of my U23 years at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. I couldn't imagine any other course than this one. Now, this is only the beginning. I want to be part of the group and help the team as soon as possible. I know a lot of riders of the team, that will help me. I'm looking forward to discovering professional racing, even if I've already had a taste of it these last two years with the French team and the Swiss Racing Academy.
I'm going to focus on finishing my 2022 season the way it should be finished before I look forward to starting the adventure with the AG2R CITROËN team in January 2023."[/su_quote] [su_quote cite=Vincent Lavenu]
Vincent Lavenu: "A boy we know well
"Alex is a boy we know well because he followed part of his training under the colors of AG2R CITROËN TEAM U23 (2020-2021). He has talent and has obtained very good results, including winning two stages of the Tour du Pays de Vaud (one in 2018 and one in 2019, which is part of the Junior Nations Cup. This year, under the colors of Swiss Racing Academy (then Tudor Pro Cycling Team), he continued his progression and has the potential to integrate our team. He is a climber-puncher who totally fits in our philosophy."[/su_quote]
