AG2R La Mondiale has announced the signing of British rider Harry Tanfield for the season 2020.

The 24-year-old makes a move after one season in Katusha-Alpecin -a team that will disappear in 2020 and in which he took a step up to the WorldTour. The Briton has in his palmares stage victories in the Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Quanzhou Bay and has achieved top-ten places in races like the Antwerpse Havenpijl, the Ronde van Overijssel, the Midden-Brabant Poort Omloop and the Individual Time Trial at the 2018 Championships of Great Britain.

"I'm definitely very happy about this opportunity," said Tanfield. "I will meet new teammates, get acquainted with a new structure, new equipment; it's really motivating! I want to continue to progress in my time trialling.

"I am still young and I still have many things to learn. I know that evolving within the group of specialists for the Flanders classics will be very rewarding. I cannot wait for the season to begin."

Vincent Lavenu, team manager of AG2R La Mondiale, welcomed this signing. "We've had our eye on Harry for two years now, and this year we finally have the opportunity to recruit him," he commented. "We are happy to sign such a talented rider, who will elevate us in the field of time trialling.

"Of course we will count on him in the road races as well. And he will also play an important role in the group that focuses on the classics."
