AG2R La Mondiale extends title sponsorship of UCI WorldTour team

French financial services company AG2R La Mondiale has extended its status as one of the longest-serving sponsors in the professional cycling peloton by renewing title sponsorship of the eponymous UCI WorldTour team.

AG2R La Mondiale first began backing the French team in 1997, taking up title sponsorship in 2000.

Its current agreement was due to expire at the end of the 2020 season, but has been extended for a further three years to run through 2023.

Vincent Lavenu, general manager of the AG2R La Mondiale team, said: The quality of our relationship is irrefutable, and I warmly thank the AG2R La Mondiale general management, the directors and employees for always believing in our team.

“This fidelity will allow us to write new pages of our history, with new challenges, and a pool of ambitious young riders who are our trademark.”
