OLIVER NAESEN: "A mark of confidence
"I am very happy to extend my contract for three more seasons. It's a great sign of confidence from the AG2R LA MONDIALE team. Since 2017, the team has not stopped progressing, whether it be in sports or in its structure and approach. Why go looking elsewhere for what works very well here? The group of classics is improving every year and will be even better in the future and there is a very good atmosphere in the team. I am very ambitious for the coming seasons. I'm looking forward to the season starting again on the first of August after such a special time for everyone. With the Tour de France before the classics, it is ideal for a rider like me. The calendar is busy but not overloaded and everything will come together for me to have a great year."[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2″][/su_column] [su_quote cite="VINCENT LAVENU "]
VINCENT LAVENU: "A great satisfaction

He is now one of the best riders of the world classics and we will build a successful team with him to achieve his sporting goals. Beyond rider, the man, by his values and his joy of living, is an important element in the life of the group."[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2″]
