In 2017, AG2R La Mondiale will race on the new range of Factor bikes – the O2, ONE, ONE-S and the soon-to-be released Time Trial Bike, the Factor Slick.

 

All Factor bikes are designed and developed with input from Factor owner and former Tour de France Green Jersey winner, Baden Cooke. Decorated former professional cyclist, David Millar, is also a key member of the Factor development team and together the pair bring over 30 accumulative years of racing experience in the professional peloton to the brand.

 

Baden Cooke, co-owner of Factor Bikes and former pro road racer, said:

 

“I am very proud that Factor will be entering the World Tour with a team as strong as AG2R La Mondiale. We are highly motivated to continue to develop our machines with the feedback from the riders to stay ahead of the game. We hope that this partnership will help Romain Bardet become the first Frenchman to win the Tour de France since Bernard Hinault in 1985.

 

"AG2R La Mondiale have a very rounded team and we believe that they can not only be a Grand Tour winning team, but also a force to be reckoned with in the Classics.We make great bikes – not good bikes. We don’t compromise on performance, every model is personally tested by David Millar and myself.

 

"We only use the very best materials, using the best design and manufacturing expertise in our wholly owned production facility – which has 20 years of experience creating World Tour racing bikes – together with exceptional fit, finishing and attention to detail.”

 

Vincent Lavenu, AG2R La Mondiale Pro Cycling Team General Manager, added:

 

“A partnership with a new brand of bicycles is always an adventure. We approach this collaboration with great enthusiasm. We feel that with Factor we will be surrounded by highly motivated people, we are certain that the bikes that have been proposed as well as the technology and the skill set that will be put to our service, will allow our leaders to shine at the highest global level operating on very high qualitity bicycles. It’s certain, we have beautiful things to build with Factor.”

 

Romain Bardet said:

 

“I am very happy with this commitment with Factor, a dynamic and innovative brand of cycles. I hope that together we can develop the best products to evolve at the highest global level.”

 

David MILLAR, Factor Test Pilot and former professional cyclist, said:


“It will be a very proud moment seeing the bikes I helped develop being raced in the Tour de France next year. Factor have allowed me more say in development than any manufacturer during my racing career, the collaborative effort has produced not only the road bikes but the Time Trial bike which I named the "Slick" (for no other reason than the first time I saw it for real I said, "Wow, looks slick").  

 

"I hope the bikes and experience we bring can help AG2R La Mondiale and Romain Bardet, one of the most exciting racers in the peloton, win the Tour de France.”
