AG2R prepares training camp

French ProTour team AG2R-La Mondiale will be meeting in Temple-sur-Lot from December 12-21 for its first winter training camp. The team counts 30 riders for 2008, who will all be present for the usual programme: training rides between 60-180 kilometres, adjustment of gear, meetings and photo shoots with the new team kit.

The squad counts eight new riders on its roster: Christophe Edaleine, Vladimir Efimkin, Stijn Vandenbergh and Tadej Valjavec, as well as the youngsters Tanel Kangert, Cédric Pineau, Alexandr Pliuschin and Jean-Charles Senac. Cyclo-crosser John Gadret will also be present even though he will be arriving only on December 17 due to the World Cup race in Overijse, Belgium on the day before. Christophe Riblon and Nicolas Rousseau will just be back from Beijing for the team meeting, after having participated in the second round of the Track World Cup in the team sprint, a vital step in view of their qualification to the Olympics next summer.
