The history

Arkéa Pro Cycling Team is the first French women's team born out of a professional men's team, Arkéa-Samsic. It was launched in 2020 and based on US Vern, a club from Ille-et-Vilaine, from which four of the ten riders in the first squad came. The team led by Franck Renimel is mainly Breton. The 2022 squad has riders who have excelled at the youth level. Amandine Fouquenet (2019 French junior cyclo-cross champion and elite in 2021), Typhaine Laurance (2015 French junior road champion), sister of Axel Laurance, a pro at B&B Hotels, and Maryanne Hinault, daughter of Arkéa-Samsic sporting director Sébastien Hinault. Pauline Allin scored her team's first-ever victory on 8 September 2020, on stage six of the Tour de l'Ardèche. Last year, Gladys Verhulst, who has since transferred to Le Col-Wahoo, took her first-ever World Tour podium on the team's home turf at the GP de Plouay (2nd).
