Despite skipping a flight and missing races this summer, French team Ag2r will honour its contract and keep Colombian Carlos Betancur through 2016.

"We discussed the unrest and tensions until they eventually settled down," General Manager Vincent Lavenu told France's L'Equipe newspaper. "This is not a new beginning, but a start. He is still under contract until 2016 and he will stay with us, that's for sure."
