The new French women team ‘‘Team Arkéa’’, which will be part of the « UCI Women’s Continental Team », requested to join MPCC on 23rd December 2020. This is the 6th women’s team to join the movement. 

Team Arkéa is Arkéa-Samsic’s new women’s team, run by Emmanuel Hubert. The men’s team became a member of MPCC on 5th July 2007. The line-up will include 10 riders, 9 of them aged between 18 and 25 years old.

Here is what team manager Gabrielle Rimasson wants to say about the team becoming a member of the movement :

« This team is the little sister of Arkéa-Samsic Continental Pro team. It seemed logical and ethical to follow its steps and join MPCC in order to protect the health of the riders, as well as the image of cycling and of our partners. The philosophy of the MPCC will be adressed during our next reunion in January, and we will offer the riders and the staff to become members of the movement as individuals »
