Miguel Angel Lopez stays with Astana until 2020

The Colombian rider Miguel Angel Lopez will continue his career in Astana Pro Team at least until the end of 2020. Despite a current contract valid for 2018 season, the team’s management and the rider signed a new agreement for the following two years (2019 and 2020).

- The next three years I will spend in Astana Team and I am very happy with this fact. I’ve started my professional career here and during all this time I felt and still feel unbelievable support from the side of the management, sports directors, my teammates. I feel that the team trust in me and this is very important. I am happy that my future lies with Astana Pro Team, now I can focus exclusively on cycling, on the upcoming season to continue progressing on my way to the highest goals, - said Miguel Angel Lopez.

Miguel Angel Lopez (23) came to Astana Pro Team in 2015 as a neo-pro rider. Over the last three years, despite a serious injury in the end of 2016, Miguel Angel has reached some big achievements: he won the Milano – Torino and the Tour de Suisse in 2016, took stage victories at the Tour of Austria, the Vuelta a Burgos and twice at the Vuelta a España in 2017. Besides, in the last season Lopez won the youth classification of La Vuelta, finishing 8th in final classification.

- For us Miguel Angel Lopez is one of the leaders of the team even he is still very young. He doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone – only to gain experience, to develop and to improve as a professional rider and, of course, to win. He has all he needs for that and Astana Team can provide him with the maximum support. The new agreement is just a strengthening of our relationships, so now, the rider and the team, we both can begin to build a long-term plan for our successful future, - said general manager Alexandr Vinokurov.
