Bouchard, Godon, Paret-Peintre extend contracts

Geoffrey Bouchard (28) professional since 2019, Dorian Godon (24) professional since 2017 and a member of our team since 2019, and Aurélien Paret Peintre (24), professional since 2018, have all extended their contracts with the AG2R LA MONDIALE team for two years.

AURELIEN PARET-PEINTRE : « I have progressed well »

“I’ve been on the team for two and a half years and I’m happy to continue my career with the AG2R LA MONDIALE team. Extra continuity comes also from my years at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. I’ve made good progress and I hope I can still have bigger responsibilities like. I had at the start of this season. I managed to notch up some interesting performances, particularly in support of Benoit Cosnefroy at the Etoile de Béssèges and at Paris-Nice. I hope to continue with this good momentum over the rest of the season. I am looking forward to it.”AURELIEN PARET-PEINTRE

DORIAN GODON : « Happy with this sign of trust »

« I am pleased to have been shown this mark of confidence from the AG2R LA MONDIALE team. This opens up longer-term prospects for me. We are a a good group and there is good cohesion among the riders. I dream of winning a stage in a grand tour and of being able to support Oliver Naesen in the Flanders classics. I can’t wait to get back to racing. I’m sure that from August onwards, there will be many opportunities to express ourselves if we have the freshness. I don’t mind training, but racing is the most important thing» DORIAN GODON

GEOFFREY BOUCHARD : « Physical maturity and freshness »

« I am delighted to extend my contract for two seasons. I turned pro late and I have had an atypical career profile. This renewal is confirmation that I have my place in the peloton. It took me time to adapt to the rhythm of the races, the calendar and, today, I am reaching physical maturity with still a lot of mental freshness to invest myself enormously in my work.
Since May 11th, we have had favorable conditions for training, and I approach the upcoming few months of competition with enormous motivation » GEOFFREY BOUCHARD

VINCENT LAVENU : « Dans l’esprit de l’équipe AG2R LA MONDIALE »

« Geoffrey, Dorian, and Aurélien are riders who are part of the spirit of the AG2R LA MONDIALE team.
Geoffrey turned professional late but quickly adapted to the pros by showing great abilities, as his King of the Mountains jersey at the Vuelta a Espana demonstrates. Dorian is a puncher who has a very good spirit and a lot of enthusiasm. He is able to win races. Aurélien is a pure product of our training squad. He comes from a family of cyclists and Valentin, his brother, is currently part of the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. He demonstrated great potential at the start of the season which will allow him to obtain interesting results in the future.» VINCENT LAVENU
