Nicolas Prodhomme signs for two years

The French rider, Nicolas Prodhomme (Chambéry Cyclisme Formation), 23, has signed a contract starting January 1, 2021 to ride for two years with the AG2R LA MONDIALE team, which will become the AG2R CITROËN TEAM starting in the 2021.

NICOLAS PRODHOMME: “A childhood dream”

“I spent two great years at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation (2018-2019) before joining the Villefranche club. After this unusual year, I am happy to join the professionals with the AG2R CITROËN TEAM. It’s a childhood dream come true today to be stepping up to this new tier. I am joining a team that I know well (he had been a stagiaire in 2018) and I am proud to be part of this adventure. I will also be rejoining former riders from Chambéry like Clément Champoussin with whom I raced.”NICOLAS PRODHOMME

VINCENT LAVENU : “A just reward”

“Nicolas is an excellent rider. He was one of the pillars of the France team and seeing him reach the professionals is the next logical step. He should have joined us in 2020 but it was not possible. He wore the Chambéry Cyclisme Formation jersey for two seasons, where he was a foundation rider for the team before joining Villefranche. I am happy to see him return to riding in our colors. His arrival completes our recruitment for the 2021 season. ” VINCENT LAVENU
