At The Root of the Best Cycling Race in The World

We are proud to be sponsoring the Team Classification category in the 2017 Tour de France, the 104th edition of the famed race.

Having a long-held cultural connection with the race, our French-owned company has origins in the rural communities of southern France, where a culture of collaboration and cooperation between farmers and seed merchants prevails to this day.

For a number of years, RAGT Semences has sponsored the prestigious three-week cycling race and since 2014 has replaced Group-Digital as the sponsor of the team standings category.

The teams are classified by adding the times of each team's three best riders on each stage, except for team time trials. Riders in the team leading the classification wear yellow helmets and race numbers.
