ag2r La Mondiale or ag2r for short is a French cycling team that is licensed as a WorldTeam .

The team is a member of the Mouvement Pour un Cyclisme Crédible (MPCC for short; German movement for credible cycling). The main sponsor has been the insurer AG2R La Mondiale since 2000 . It is based in La Motte-Servolex .


The team was founded in 1992 by the former French cyclist Vincent Lavenu and started under the name Chazal until 1995 . In 1996 the name was changed to Petit Casino after the sponsor Casino Guichard , before starting from 1997 to 1999 as Casino-ag2r Prévoyance . From 2000 to 2007 the team started as ag2r Prévoyance ( prévoyance - for example: old-age provision - is one of the service areas of the insurer AG2R La Mondiale ).

ag2r La Mondiale took part in the UCI Europe Tour in 2005 and received a wildcard for the Tour de France 2005 . For the UCI ProTour 2006 the team had applied for a UCI ProTeam license, which was also awarded to them on November 28, 2005.

One day before the start of the Tour de France 2006 , captain Francisco Mancebo was discharged from the tour due to incriminating evidence in the Fuentes doping scandal .

The sporting director Laurent Biondi was initially convicted because of the discovery of Potbelge . At the beginning of May 2007 Laurent Biondi was acquitted in a new process and then hired again as team manager.

The team's greatest successes include third place for John Gadret at the Giro d'Italia 2011 , second place for Jean-Christophe Péraud and victory in the team classification at the Tour de France 2014 as well as second and third place for Romain Bardet at the Tour de France 2016 and 2017 .
