Agritubel rider David Le Lay has signed with French ProTour outfit AG2R - La Mondiale for two seasons, a boost ahead of his ride in this year's Tour de France starting on Saturday in Monaco.

Having arrived at Agritubel from domestic squad Bretagne - Armor-Lux during the middle of last season, his performances in this year's editions of Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, where he took 12th and 21st respectively, caught the eye of AG2R - La Mondiale management.

Le Lay has quickly developed into one of French cycling's most notable current riders, although his career has followed a slightly varying trajectory to the likes of countrymen Thomas Voeckler or Pierrick Fredrigo. His place on a ProTour roster is the next step in a rise to prominence and should lead to more success over the next two years.
