Antoine Raugel: "I dreamed of it
"I dreamed of joining a UCI WorldTour team. This was not possible last season and it will happen in 2022. I am proud of the confidence of Vincent Lavenu and the whole staff. I will be back with riders with whom I raced at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. AG2R CITROËN now has a very strong classics group. These are races that I like and I hope to be able to join them. In any case, I'm very motivated"[/su_quote].
