Clément Berthet : « A legendary team. »
« If you had told me at the start of the year that I would end up on a WorldTour team, especially at AG2R CITROËN, I wouldn’t have believed you. It’s a legendary team, a big name in the peloton, and I’m really very happy. I am grateful to the Delko team for giving me my chance and allowing me to join AG2R CITROËN in the middle of the season.
I am a mountain biker and this is my first professional year on the road. I consider myself a climber who packs a punch. I also like time trialing. I will be able to rely on very experienced riders and staff. It will allow me to improve very quickly. I can’t wait to wear my new colors.»Clément
Vincent Lavenu : « A great talent to work with. »
« We worked closely with the rider, his agent, and his team to make this transfer in the middle of the season. Clément Berthet is a very versatile, young, and talented climber-rouleur. He doesn’t have a long history on the road but has already shown great things. He’s a big talent to work with, and we’re happy to welcome him.»Vincent
