Clement Berthet: "A mythical team."
"If I had said at the beginning of the year that I would end up in a WorldTeams team, especially with AG2R CITROËN, I would not have believed it. It is a mythical team, a big name in the peloton, I am really happy. I am grateful to the Delko team for giving me a chance and for allowing me to join AG2R CITROËN during the season. I come from a mountain bike background and this is my first professional year on the road. I consider myself as a climber with a lot of punch. I also like time trials. I will be able to rely on very experienced riders and staff. This will allow me to grow quickly. I can't wait to wear my new colors."[/su_quote] [su_quote cite=Vincent Lavenu]
Vincent Lavenu: "A nice talent to train."
"We worked closely with rider, his agent and his team to make this transfer during the season. Clément Berthet is a very versatile, young and talented climber-rider. He doesn't have a long history on the road but he has already shown great things. He is a nice talent to train and we are happy to welcome him."[/su_quote]
