Mercier Hutchinson (officially Mercier BP Hutchinson) was a French cycling team that participated in many major races and tours from 1935 to 1984. From the start of this cycling team until 1969, Cycles Mercier - a bicycle manufacturer - was the main sponsor. This purple-and-yellow jersey of the team was worn during the Mercier-BP-Hutchinson sponsorship period. Other sponsors joined the team in later years. Between 1973 and 1976, GAN Cycling replaced Mercier and as the team's main sponsor, leading to the formation of the GAN Mercier Hutchinson cycling team. From 1977 to 1982 - the last years of the team's existence - Miko became the main sponsor and the team name became Miko-Mercier-Vivagel.
