Jose Luis Arrieta and Stéphane Goubert have both extended their contracts with AG2R La Mondiale for an additional year.

Both Arrieta and Goubert showed good form during the Tour de France, helping the French team to secure second place in the teams classification, behind CSC-Saxo Bank.

Goubert worked well for Vladimir Efimkin and Tadej Valjavec in the mountains, especially in Alpe d'Huez. Goubert ended the race 21st overall.

The duo is considered a cornerstone of the team and they are expected to pass on their experience to the younger riders.

Both will also participate in the Clásica a San Sebastián on Saturday, August 2. They will be joined by Cyril Dessel, Hubert Dupont, Christophe Edaleine, Tanel Kangert, Julien Loubet and Rinaldo Nocentini.
