AboutDirected by Vincent Lavenu, AG2R La Mondiale will race in the 2012 Amgen Tour of California after a two-year hiatus. A French team with French sponsors, this squad tends to focus on the Tour de France and other important French races; however, their ProTour status allows for high expectations in any major stage race, including the Amgen Tour of California.
The well-rounded organization has always stated that their goal is not to have a single leader, but to have a complete team with riders who can all claim victories. This goal will remain the same in California, as the team looks to support Nicolas Roche and Rinaldo Nocentini, among others.
The team’s title sponsors are the Ag2r Group, which is a French-based inter-professional insurance and supplementary retirement fund group; and the La Mondiale Group, which is a French-based international group for supplementary pension and estate planning insurance.
