Spanish rider Francisco Mancebo has signed a two-year deal with French professional Continental team Ag2r-Prévoyance in Madrid on Friday. Together with his current teammate David Navas at Illes Balears, the 29 year-old will leave the Spanish team to join Vincent Lavenu's squad in France, who have also just signed French classification rider Christophe Moreau.

Mancebo finished this year's Tour de France placed fourth. The signing of the Spaniard will surely help Ag2r's bid to enter the ProTour, especially as there will probably be a vacant place left by Fassa Bortolo, who will stop their sponsorship of professional cycling at the end of this year.
