- Of course, I am very happy to extend my contract with Astana, for me it is a special team, a national project close to me in spirit. I feel that I still have a lot of strength and motivation; there is a great desire to continue to perform at the highest level. I am ready to continue to help my teammates in achieving the biggest team goals, but I will also strive for further progress in terms of personal results, in particular, representing Kazakhstan at the continental and world championships, - said Andrey Zeits.
Andrey Zeits has spent in Astana Pro Team 11 successful seasons. The most experienced Kazakhstan cyclist has repeatedly held one of the key positions, helping the team leaders to achieve success in the Grand tours.

His support for the leaders at the Grand tours is always very important and valuable, this year he held a high level at the Giro and La Vuelta, and we count on him in the new season. Of course, Andrey has personal ambitions, he always rode well for the national team of Kazakhstan.
