The history

Created in 2014 and turning professional in 2019, this team has been supported since last year by the European rugby champion club, Stade Rochelais, which is keen to support the sporting and marketing development of this team based in Charente-Maritime. The team sports the yellow and black colours and has achieved its first major objective by being invited to the 1st Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift.

The squad managed by Jean-Christophe Barbotin is particularly young, including some of the best French riders, such as Maeva Squiban (16th in the Tour de Suisse, 2020 European junior time trial vice-champion), Kristina Nenadovic (3rd in the 2019 European junior championships), India Grangier (French U23 champion) and Noémie Abgrall, 3rd in the last French championships in Cholet. 2019 French time trial champion, 27 years old Séverine Eraud, is the road captain.
