Alex Aranburu will take a step up to the WorldTour with Astana in 2020. The Spaniard has signed a two-year contract with the team.

The all-rounder -who is currently riding the Vuelta a España with Caja Rural- has a palmares that includes stage victories in races like the Vuelta a Burgos and the Vuelta Ciclista Comunidad de Madrid. "I think Astana Pro Team has proven to be one of the best teams in professional cycling and I’m very happy to join this amazing squad for the next two seasons," Aramburu commented.

"This team showed that they can challenge and develop riders to make the next step in their careers, so I’m glad I can now experience this myself. I am happy to do my own big step in the WorldTour with Astana! I’m looking forward to starting the new season with Astana Pro Team and I hope to show my potential as a rider in this team."

Alexandr Vinokurov, general manager of Astana, explained the decision of signing the 23-year-old. "Alex Aranburu is an interesting rider who can perform well on almost every terrain," he said. "He has a good sprint and he is able to perform on hilly and mountain courses.

"He already showed some strong results at the pro-conti level, so, it will be interesting to see his progress in the WorldTour, being part of our team. I think that Aranburu will strengthen our squad in stage races and Grand Tours. He’s impressing us at La Vuelta this year, so I expect we’ll see more from him in the upcoming seasons."
