AG2R La Mondiale has agreed to a contract extension with Benoit Cosnefroy for three more years.

The Frenchman turned professional in the WorldTour formation in 2017 and has decided to continue the adventure for three more years. The rider has taken victories in races like the Tour du Limousin-Nouvelle Aquitaine, the Etoile de Besseges, La Poly Normande and Paris-Camembert, among others.

"Extending my contract with the AG2R La Mondiale team means that I am choosing continuity and ambition," Cosnefroy commented. "Getting a three-year contract is a great sign of trust from the team's management and its partners. The whole project is motivating. I feel a real expectation around me. It's a pressure that pleases and motivates me. The communication between everyone is very good with an interesting exchange of perspectives.

"I now want to win a one-day UCI WorldTour race and my dream would be to win an Ardennes classic. Today, I'm looking forward to returning to the racing season. There's a kind of elation to think that everything will be condensed into a few months and that there will be great things still to achieve. I really want to raise my arms in victory again."

AG2R La Mondiale's General Manager Vincent Lavenu welcomed the news. "We are very pleased to extend our contract with Benoit Cosnefroy, especially for three years," he said. "It was an important goal.

"He is a talented rider, who was trained at Chambéry Cyclisme Formation. He is not afraid to express his ambitions. We are ready to accompany and help him to achieve his objectives."

The Frenchman is the sixth rider to extend his contract with the formation. In the last weeks, Geoffrey Bouchard, Dorian Godon, Oliver Naesen, Aurelien Paret-Peintre and Alexis Vuillermoz, also extended their stay in the French team.
