Sébastien Hinault may have taken the best victory of his career on stage 10 of the Vuelta a España when he beat AG2R-La Mondiale's Lloyd Mondory to the line, but he will soon be joining the vanquished on the rival French team. Hinault became the latest Crédit Agricole rider to find a home for the coming seasons, signing a two-year deal with AG2R-La Mondiale, the team announced Friday.

A professional since 1997, the 34-year-old Hinault has eleven career victories to date. A stage win and the final overall victory in the Tour du Limousin as well as his stage in the Vuelta helped secure his future after team manager Roger Legeay failed to find a replacement for the outgoing sponsor Crédit Agricole.
