Astana Pro Team has announced that the partnership with the road bike manufacturer Argon 18 has ended.

The Kazakh formation has been riding Argon 18 bikes since January of 2017 and now the partnership comes to an end by a mutual agreement -the team and the manufacturer will continue their adventure in the world of cycling separately. "It was a great pleasure and honour for us to work with Argon 18," said Astana's general manager Alexander Vinokurov. "We have spent three fantastic years, full of success and high sports achievements.

"I would like to thank Argon 18 for the sponsorship, support and contribution to the development of Astana Pro Team. After these three years of close collaboration, we part as good friends. I wish Argon 18 all the best in the future and I am sure that the company will see more beautiful successes in their current new projects."

Astana and Argon 18 had three successful season in which they got 85 victories -including Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019, Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 & 2019, Amstel Gold Race 2018, Itzulia Basque Country 2019, Volta a Catalunya 2019 and 11 Grand-tour stages- and 141 podium places.

"These last three seasons have been marked by multiple race wins and the launch of new products developed in collaboration with the team and tested by Astana Pro Team riders on the most demanding WorldTour circuits," commented Martin Le Sauteur, president and CEO of Argon 18.

"We take great pride in the work accomplished throughout this sponsorship. A pride validated by the many positive comments from riders, mechanics and other Astana Pro Team staff regarding the quality of the products and support Argon 18 has provided them. In this sense, we can say: mission accomplished."
