Astana Pro Team has announced the signing of Spanish rider Óscar Rodríguez with a two-year contract.

Rodríguez has been in the Pro Continental level since 2018 with Euskadi-Murias and now takes a step up to the WorldTour. The rider has a palmares that includes one stage victory at the Vuelta a España and top-ten places in stages of races like the Vuelta a Burgos and in the overall classification of the Vuelta a Murcia, the Mont Ventoux Denivele Challenge and La Route d'Occitanie.

"I am really happy to join Astana Pro Team for the following two years," said the Spaniard. "I will do my best to become an important part of this team. For me, it is a big step ahead in my career and I am ready to come into the WorldTour. I hope together with the team and my new teammates we will reach our goals."

Astana's General Manager Alexandr Vinokurov is glad about this signing. "Oscar Rodriguez is a young rider, who could become a strong climber as he already showed his potential in some races during this season, for example, at Mont Ventoux or Vuelta a Burgos," he said.

"Also, he is good in time trial and maybe in our team, he can even improve in this discipline. With other words, he looks like he can become a strong all-rounder and I am curious to see his progress in our team at the WorldTour level."
