DARIO CATALDO
ASTANA PRO TEAM

Italian cyclist Dario Cataldo has extended his contact with Astana Pro Team, the WorldTour formation announced on Thursday.

Cataldo joined Astana from Team Sky in 2015. 'Picasso', as he is nicknamed, was signed to support Vincenzo Nibali and Fabio Aru while at the same time strengthening the team's performance in team time trials.

"I like the style and sports character of Dario," said General Manager Alexander Vinokourov. "He is a real fighter on the road, who can be a super domestique for the leader, but at the same time he can take a responsibility in the race on himself.

"We saw it in the Giro just a few weeks ago. I am happy to provide Dario a new contract for the next two seasons. We see his progress and in the nearest future he can reach some nice results."

Cataldo himself is happy to renew his contract, he said. "This is a great team, which is developing year by year, always setting the highest goals at the Grand Tours. I like this so much, because I find a good motivation in moving ahead in my progress as a rider and staying in the successful team with big ambitions."

At 32, Cataldo is set to make his Tour de France debut on Saturday.
