AG2R La Mondiale are one of many teams that have gathered in Spain for their final training camp of 2015. The French squad have been in Gandia in the south-west of the country since early last week and will remain there until this Friday.

The training camp is the first chance for all of the riders to meet up ahead of next season, with a few missing out on their previous get together in the French Alps. New signing Jesse Sergent was present along with current riders Romain Bardet, Domenico Pozzovivo and Jean Christophe Peraud.

As well as daily rides, the team have been doing power tests and planning out the season ahead. Flick through the gallery above to see what they’ve been up to.
