Team TotalEnergies, formerly Total Direct Energie, compete at a UCI Pro-Conti level and often gain wild card entries to the World Tour. The team can trace its routes all the way back to 1984 as Systéme U.

For the majority of the 21st century, they have focused on wins from the provocative Thomas Voeckler. The famous breakaway specialist has won four stage wins at the Tour de France for the team, alongside several national championship jerseys and overall wins at smaller stage races.

Other significant riders were Bryan Coquard and Sylvain Chavanel. In 2019, the teams hopes were lain upon Niccoló Bonifazio.

 The team made some bigger name signings over 2020 and 2021 with Niki Terpstra joining from Quick-Step in 2020 as well as Edvald Boasson Hagen, Chris Lawless, Pierre Latour, Víctor de la Parte all joining along with multiple others.

For 2022, the team are said to be aiming for a WorldTour position in the future and Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) is believed to be the team's key to the highest division in cycling.
