Arkea-Samsic is a Professional Continental cycling team based in Rennes, France that participates in UCI Continental Circuits races and UCI World Tour races when receiving a wild card. The team was founded in 2005 and in 2013 the main sponsor became Séché Environnement, a French waste treatment company.[4]


In 2014 they received a wildcard invitation to the 2014 Tour de France.[5] In September, of the same year, the team announced they had formed a partnership with the amateur cycling team Brest Iroise Cyclisme 2000 (BIC 2000) which will now act as its reserve team.[6] The team took part in the 2015 Tour de France and again in 2016, having been selected as a wildcard once again.[7]

For 2016 and 2017 the team was named Fortuneo Vital Concept.[8][9] On 1 June 2017 Vital Concept announced that it will cease sponsorship after 30 June. Oscaro stepped in as naming sponsor and the team became known as Fortuneo–Oscaro from 1 July.[10] After six months Oscaro stepped aside, being replaced by Samsic, with both naming sponsors signing deals through to the end of the 2020 season.[11] For the 2018 season onwards, the team signed the WorldTour rider Warren Barguil and built the team around him. The team will be running under the name of Arkea-Samsic starting with the Season of 2019. [12]
