Astana Pro Team has announced a contract extension for Colombian rider Rodrigo Contreras.

The rider took the step up to the WorldTour level with the Kazakh team in 2019 and he will remain at the formation for at least one more season. "I am super happy with this big family named Astana Pro Team," Contreras commented.

"I’ve got a great welcome immediately from the beginning and I am so glad to continue racing in Astana colours. I hope to continue giving my all for the team to help Astana in reaching the biggest goals. I really like this team: I like the group of riders we have here as well as all the management and the staff. I feel here like at home."

So far in 2019, the Colombian has finished in the top-ten of races like the Tour Colombia and the Tour Du Rwanda, where he also won a stage. "We are happy with Rodrigo in his first season in our team," said Astana's General Manager Alexandr Vinokurov.

"He is a strong, motivated and fully dedicated to cycling young rider. He is loyal and always ready to help his teammates. Contreras is still missing some experience, but after this first season, we are looking forward to seeing his progress in the next year. I am sure he has everything to get some important results in his career."
