Tanel Kangert (Estonia) has signed a contract with French team Ag2r Prévoyance. The rider of the French outfit Roue d'Or-Saint-Amandoise delivered his signature yesterday in Stuttgart, after the conclusion of the World Championships. The contract will be for two years.
Kangert, who had already done four races as a stagiaire for the ProTour team, finished tenth in the Coppa Placci. He also did both events in Stuttgart in the U23 category. In the road race he ended up in 31st, while he got a very good seventh place in the time trial. The 20 year-old had already good results this season, winning among other things the Tour du Gévaudan and the G.P. de Vougy in France.
