Italian Fabio Aru will lead Astana Pro Team at the upcoming Vuelta a España. The Kazakh WorldTour formation confirmed this on its official website.

The 2015 winner of the Spanish race, who did not take part to defend his title in 2016, returns to the grand tour after a good performance in the Tour de France where he finished in fifth place after having worn the Yellow Jersey earlier in the race.

Aru's team for the Vuelta may arguably be stronger than the support he had in the Tour de France, with Colombian climber Miguel Angel Lopez and Spaniards Luis Leon Sanchez and Pello Bilbao all confirmed for Astana's selection.

The remaining five riders are yet to be unveiled at this point.

The 2017 Vuelta a España will start on August 19 with a Team Time Trial in Nimes, France, and finishes in Madrid on September 10.
