Alexis Vuillermoz (born 1 June 1988) is a French road bicycle racer for UCI WorldTeam AG2R La Mondiale.[2]


He was originally a mountain bike racer before switching to road cycling, winning the French national under-23 mountain bike title twice and riding as part of the French national team that took the team relay title at the 2008 Mountain Bike World Championships.[1] He was a member of the Sojasun team that competed at the 2013 Tour de France,[3] finishing the race 46th overall.

Vuillermoz joined Ag2r–La Mondiale for the 2014 season, after his previous team Sojasun – folded at the end of the 2013 season.[2] In the eighth stage of the 2015 Tour de France, Vuillermoz attacked the leading group on the Mûr-de-Bretagne to cross the line solo atop the hill.[4] "After winning I thought about my dad who died three years ago. He was the one who got me interested in the Tour de France, he used to take my cousins and I to the side of the road to watch the Tour go past," said Vuillermoz. "I hope today he's proud of me."[4]

In 2016, Vuillermoz finished in 23rd position in the Olympics men's road race and in 29th position in the Olympic men's road time trial.
