Kazakhstan cycling team Astana has presented its new sport uniform for 2012, Tengrinews.kz reports, referring to Cyclingnews.com.
There were no significant changes in the new uniform. Astana team will still be riding Specialized bicycles. The only changes have been made to the list of cyclists.
Andrey Kashechkin will stay in Astana, despite the fact that his contract expired in 2011. Moreover Italian Francesco Gavazzi, former Kashechkin's Lampre partner will ride for Astana in 2012, too. Belgian Kevin Seeldraeyers is one more newcomer in the team.
Slovenian Janez Brajkovic, who became Astana cyclist in winter took part in the photo session as well. It is most likely that Brajkovic will be the team leader at Tour de France, the most prestigious race of the season, in spite of the fact that Alexandre Vinokourov decided to stay in Astana for one more season. The photos of the newcomers and new team's uniform are available here.
