Upon LeMond's departure the Crédit Agricole team acquired the British track rider, Chris Boardman, a time trialist who won the prologues of the 1996 and 1998 Tours de France. The team acquired a young Australia track rider, Stuart O'Grady, in the mid-1990s. He won several Tour stages and nearly took the Green Jersey in the 2000 Tour de France. O'Grady held on to the Yellow Jersey for many days during that same tour. German rider Jens Voigt joined the team until the 2003 season, winning a Tour stage and spending a day in the yellow jersey in 2000.
The 2000 and 2001 seasons saw Americans Bobby Julich and Jonathan Vaughters in the team, making it the team with the most English speakers. The team also won the 2001 Tour de France team time trial in front of the ONCE and U.S. Postal. Julich and Vaughters left after one and two seasons respectively.
2005 was successful for the team. Pietro Caucchioli finished in the top ten of the Giro d'Italia and Christophe Le Mével took a breakaway stage win. In the 2005 Tour de France Christophe Moreau was the highest-placed French rider (11th) and Thor Hushovd secured the green jersey points classification.
In 2006, Crédit Agricole captured the team classification at the Tour de Pologne. Hushovd took stage wins and two days in the yellow jersey at the Tour de France, won the Gent-Wevelgem classic, and a stage win and the points classification at the Vuelta a España.
Note: Saul Raisin is registered as a Crédit Agricole rider with the UCI. Raisin has not raced since he crashed and fell into a coma in April 2006. In November 2007, Crédit Agricole doctors declared the risk to his health to be too great to race again.
