“Zeits is our old reliable domestique who had learned to win last year. We all together cheered about his excellent performance at last Olympic Games. He was onwards and could fight for medals. We prolong his contract for two years, he is working successfully for the team several years, he is a true professional,” added the Astana’s General Manager.

The rider has not liberated yet, he is 25-old only, I think he will express himself. We have prolonged his contract for one year. In whole, Kazakhstan guys grow up; I hope that in a short time we will look forward the wins of our guys in large races!” Vinokurov summarized.
