Tadej Valjavec of Lampre has confirmed that he is switching to French team Ag2r Prévoyance next season. The current Slovenian champion signed a two-year contract with the ProTour team. In a statement Valjavec declared that following the health check he expects that "everything is clear." He was happy about the switch as "The team is one of the best French teams and they are well organized. They offered me better conditions than my previous team, Lampre – Fondital so I couldn't refuse."

The rider also stated that he enjoys wearing the Slovenian championships jersey, which he will be able to do with the new sponsor next year at least until nationals are held a week before the Tour de France.

Valjavec is currently 32nd in the UCI ranking, with his new captain, Christophe Moreau, in tenth place.
