Groupama, title sponsor of one of the two French WorldTeams along with FDJ, has announced its commitment to the Mouvement Pour un Cyclisme Credible (MPCC or Movement for a Credible Cycling).

The company made a request to join the sponsor members of the MPCC as soon as the deal with FDJ was revealed. Even though the deal of the company with the team begins on the 4th of March of 2018, at the beginning of Paris-Nice, the membership will start immediately.

"Every time we have been involved in sports, we have stood up for the idea of seeking performance and victory while respecting all of the established rules," said Sylvain Burel, Groupama's communication director. "This approach makes it possible to get full credibility and total achievement when reaching a sports victory."

Burel thinks the membership of the company at the MPCC makes complete sense. "Today, even if cycling still suffers from the circumventions of rules by a few isolated stakeholders, recent studies show that we can look forward with more certainty than in the past," he mentioned.

"The MPCC leads those necessary studies in order to increase the minimum international ethical rules standards, with an absolute will to make cycling a perfectly responsible and transparent sport. We fully commit to this approach that we share with Marc Madiot (director of the team)."
