Team Total Direct Energie's Lilian Calmejane has signed a one-year contract with AG2R La Mondiale, starting on January 1, 2021.

The 27-year-old has been in Direct Energie since 2016 and has taken victories in races like the Circuit Cycliste Sarthe-Pays de la Loire, the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali and the Etoile de Besseges, as well as of stage of the Tour de France in 2017 and of the Vuelta a España in 2016. The rider will become part from the AG2R Citroën Team from the First of January 2021.

"I have a very strong history with Vendée U and then Jean-René Bernaudeau's team, they allowed me to turn professional and I will not forget that," said Calmejane. "Still, after five years on the same team, I felt the need for a new challenge. Discovering new teammates, new equipment, new races, and winning my place in the squad too.

"I am really happy to start with AG2R La Mondiale, I feel like I'm starting a new career. I know that I will find riders my age, but also younger guys who are very promising. I know the team enjoys a great dynamic, and I am very much looking forward to this new challenge."

"Lilian has already shown all his potential by winning at the Vuelta but also at the Tour de France," said the team's General Manager Vincent Lavenu. "He has a strong character, and he is capable of winning at a high level. He will be starting a new challenge with our AG2R Citroën team from January 1st. I know he will be able to show all his talent when racing in our colours."
