Lawrence Naesen moves to the French Ag2r La Mondiale for the next two seasons.
The 26-year-old is really pleased to wear the same shirt as his brother and hopes to keep making progress himself, as he states in a press release of his new team.
"I'm really excited about joining AG2R LA MONDIALE. I'm going to race wearing the same jersey as my brother, and that’s really a dream come true. It was actually my goal when
I turned professional. During the last two seasons, I have been able to take part in the great races that are close to my heart, but I am eager to continue my progression in racing the classics in Flanders.”
General manager of the team, Vincent Lavenu, also commented on Lawrence's transfer:
"Lawrence has the experience and culture of the races in Flanders. He is close to his brother Oliver, who is two years older, and his arrival will strengthen our group for the cobbled races where we will try to win a great victory.”
