Russia's Vladimir Efimkin has decided to leave the French-sponsored, Spanish squad Caisse d'Epargne in 2008, opting instead to sign with French ProTour team AG2r Prévoyance, according to the Gazet van Antwerpen.

The 25 year-old Efimkin has been labeled as one of his generation's greatest talents. This year Efimkin won a stage of the Vuelta a España and spent some time in the leader's jersey before going on to finish sixth overall. Vladimir's twin brother Alexander signed a contract last month to rider for Belgian squad Quick Step-Innergetic in 2008.
