AG2R La Mondiale signed Alexander Efimkin to a professional contract for two years. He joins his twin brother Vladimir, who earlier this year joined the squad, which is directed by Vincent Lavenu.

"Alexander is a versatile rider," said Lavenu. "He can perform as well in the Classics as in stage races. Following him, I think that he will do well racing more at an international level."

Alexander Efimkin, a Russian 26 year-old, who now resides in Italy, has four professional victories already to his name. In 2007, after having taken a stage, he stepped into the lead at the Settimana Ciclistica Lombarda. He did the same at the Giro del Capo. This year, he finished 10th at Paris-Nice.
