Miguel Angel Lopez has extended his contract with Astana for another two years. The Colombian had already signed until 2018 and is now confirmed for the team until 2020.

The announcement was made during the media day of Astana in Spain and CyclingPub.com had the chance to get the first impressions from the rider right on the spot. "I am very happy about this news because I started my professional career with Astana, I stepped up to the WorldTour with them and I'm very happy here because they have treated me very carefully, taking small steps with me and considering that I'm a very young rider," said the rider to CyclingPub.

The 23-year-old is very happy with the work of the team in his career, not putting too much pressure on him. "Everything has been one step at the time and without any stress," he commented. "We have been taking small steps together and we have been growing."

At the end of 2017, Lopez suffered a tibia fracture during a training ride in Colombia and the recovery made his season shorter. "2017 was a little complicated because of the fracture I had and even if I didn't ride much, I took four victories," he explained.

"But I'm very happy about the team putting its trust in me for the future. I feel extremely happy and very calm above all."
