Kazakh rider Yevgeniy Gidich has extended his contract with Astana Pro Team for the 2020 season.

The 23-year-old took a step up to the WorldTour level in 2018 and has a palmares that includes stage wins in races like the Tour of Croatia, the Tour of Thailand and the Tour of Iran, as well as finished in the third GC position of the Tour of Croatia and taking the title of the road race of the Asian Cycling Championships.

"I spent two very interesting and useful years in Astana Pro Team," Gidich mentioned. "It was a huge and very valuable experience that I want to use in the future. Not everything turned out as I expected in the ended season, but still, there were a few bright moments, and I'm happy about it.

"I remember the victory with the Kazakhstan national team at the Asian Cycling Championships, and it was very nice to finish the season with a stage win at the CRO Race. In the upcoming season, I am looking forward to more good results, victories. I want to thank the team’s management for the trust and chances to show myself. And, of course, many thanks to our main sponsor Samruk-Kazyna, who supports domestic cycling year by year."

Astana Pro Team's General Manager Alexandr Vinokurov welcomed this contract extension. "During his first two years in our team Yevgeniy had some ups and downs and not everything went perfect for him, but for such a young rider it is normal as he is still looking for his way in professional cycling," he explained.

"We know his potential and we believe that in the future he has a chance to become a strong professional rider. Yevgeniy really impressed us with the way he won the Asian Championships and with the way he performed at this end of the season, so I am sure he is ready for some more in the upcoming years."
