Samuel Dumoulin (born 20 August 1980) is a French professional road bicycle racer who rides for Ag2r-La Mondiale.[1] Dumoulin left Cofidis at the end of the 2012 season, after five seasons with the team, and signed a two-year contract with Ag2r-La Mondiale for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.[1] Dumoulin has been a professional since 2002, for the Jean Delatour team. At the end of 2003 he moved to AG2R Prévoyance before riding for Cofidis.

Amateur career[edit]

Dumoulin rode as an amateur for the TCCT[2] (Tonic cyclo club of Ternay). He won the national youth championship in 1996, then the éspoir (young professional) Paris–Tours and Paris-Auxerre in 2001.

He dropped out of the 2004 Tour de France when he crashed after hitting a dog. Recovery took him four months and he did not race for the rest of the season. In 2008 he won the third stage after a breakaway of nearly 200 km, beating William Frischkorn and Romain Feillu.
