Alexey Lutsenko has extended his contract with Astana until 2020. The Kazakh rider has been in the WorldTour team since 2013.

The 25-year-old moved to the team after taking the victory at the U23 UCI Road Championships and his palmares includes victories in races like the Tour of Almaty, the Tour of Hainan and the Tour of Oman, as well as stage wins in the Vuelta a España, the Tour de Suisse and Paris-Nice.

"I am happy that the team's management offered me to extend for another two years," said Lutsenko. "For me, the fact that the team sees me as a rider who not only achieves results but also continues to develop professionally is important. I am very pleased that in the next two seasons I will continue to perform in Astana, it is important for me to be part of our national project.

"I have been in this team for 6 years and I feel very comfortable here. There is a wonderful atmosphere in Astana Pro Team, here I feel like I want to move forward, to conquer new heights. I have serious goals for the next few years, and I am happy that I am going to achieve it in Astana Team."

Astana's general manager Alexandr Vinokourov thinks this is the best place for the rider to keep developing his talents. "Despite the fact that Alexey already has an impressive list of victories and important podiums, he is still very young and only is revealing his potential," he commented.

"Lutsenko is a vivid example of the implementation of our national cycling project, and I am happy that in the next two years he will continue to grow at a professional level in Astana Pro Team. This year Alexey showed the new features and rider’s qualities. I think that in the near future he will be able to surprise many with his results in different kind of races."
