Spanish rider Omar Fraile has signed a new two-year agreement with Astana Pro Team, which means he will stay at the formation until at least 2021.

The Spaniard arrived at the Kazakh formation in 2018 and will continue in it until at least the end of 2021. "It’s great that I signed a new contract for two years at Astana Pro Team because this team really feels like a family where I want to stay part of," said Fraile.

"This feeling, combined with the professional staff and the excellent materials, made it an easy decision for me to sign the contract. I’m looking forward to keeping racing with the attractive mentality of the team and I’m proud to keep defending the colours of Astana. I want to thank the management for the faith they have in me and the main sponsor Samruk-Kazyna for the trust in our team."

In his time in Astana so far, the rider has taken stage victories in races like the Tour de France, the Tour de Romandie and Itzulia Basque Country, and has been a key helper in the victories of Ion Izaguirre at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and of Jakob Fuglsang at Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

"No doubt, that Omar Fraile is one of the most valuable riders in our team," said Astana's general manager Alexandr Vinokurov. "He proved it last year, taking a few nice victories, he confirmed it this season, not only trying to get some personal results but also helping his teammates to reach important victories.

"Indeed, this year two bad crashes did not allow yet Omar to fight for a high personal result, but he did a good Tour de France and since we still have many races ahead of us, I am sure, he will find a way to the glory. I am happy that Omar stays in our team for two more seasons, I believe that he will have many great moments in the next years."
