Clément Lhotellerie signs contract with Skil-Shimano

Clément Lhotellerie has signed a contract for two years with the Skil-Shimano professional cycling team. The 20 year-old French rider is the current French Espoirs cyclo-cross champion, and an all-rounder on the road. This winter he aims to excel one more time in the French cyclo cross championship and the world championship for Espoirs in Belgium before concentrating totally on his career as a road racing professional.

The young Frenchman is looking forward to moving up to the professional ranks, and has big ambitions for the future: "I would like to take one of the top places in the world cyclocross championship this winter, and after that I intend to concentrate entirely on road racing. I’m going to do everything I can to develop step by step into a successful professional rider."
