Agritubel riders making preparations at the 2006 Tour de France

Agritubel Pro Cycling Team (UCI Team Code: AGR) was a French professional road race cycling team. The team's title sponsor, Agritubel, is a worldwide provider and manufacturer of tubular metal products for cattle, livestock and farming.

Agritubel mostly competed for wins at the UCI Europe Tour; however, the team was selected as one of two wildcard teams (that is, teams not on the UCI ProTour) to compete at the 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 Tour de France. In 2006, Agritubel riders had competed at several other UCI ProTour events, including Paris-Nice, Paris-Roubaix, La Flèche Wallonne, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré
