French Continental Pro Team Ag2r-Prévoyance will meet for the first time in their 2006 setup in Temple sur Lot, Southwestern France, from December 6-15, 2005. The squad, which will include Francisco Mancebo and Christophe Moreau next season, currently counts 25 riders and may enter the ProTour next year. In that case, two additional riders will be signed.
The team gathering will combine training rides (60-180 km), meetings between the directors, riders and staff, technical requirements as well as a day of relaxation in Bordeaux. Ag2r rider Simon Gerrans will not be able to attend as he is staying in Australia during the European off-season. All 24 remaining pros will be present: José Luis Arrieta, Mikel Astarloza, Sylvain Calzati, Iñigo Chaurreau, Philip Deignan, Cyril Dessel, Samuel Dumoulin, John Gadret, Stéphane Goubert, Yuriy Krivtsov, Julien Loubet, Francisco Mancebo, Laurent Mangel, Lloyd Mondory, Christophe Moreau, Carl Naibo, David Navas, Jean-Patrick Nazon, Erki Putsep, Christophe Riblon, Mark Scanlon, Ludovic Turpin, Aliaksandr Usau and Tomas Vaitkus.
