Astana Pro Team has confirmed the contract extension of Andrey Zeits. The most experienced Kazakh rider will stay at the team for the 2019 season.

Zeits has been at the Kazakh team since the start of his career in 2008 and there has achieved results like top-ten positions in races like the Tour of Hainan, the Tour of Turkey, the Tour de Pologne and the Tour de Langkawi.

"Of course, I am very happy to extend my contract with Astana, for me, it is a special team, a national project close to me in spirit," the rider commented. "I feel that I still have a lot of strength and motivation; there is a great desire to continue to perform at the highest level.

"I am ready to continue to help my teammates in achieving the biggest team goals, but I will also strive for further progress in terms of personal results, in particular, representing Kazakhstan at the continental and world championships."

Astana's general manager Alexandr Vinokurov is pleased to keep counting on a rider that serves of support of GC riders at Grand Tours. "Andrey Zeits is one of the strongest and most experienced Kazakh riders in the professional peloton," he explained. "His support for the leaders at the Grand tours is always very important and valuable, this year he held a high level at the Giro and La Vuelta, and we count on him in the new season.

"Of course, Andrey has personal ambitions, he always rode well for the national team of Kazakhstan. I hope that in the future he will be able to honourably represent our country at the most important competitions."
