ASTANA (AST) - KAZ

The Astana team has undergone a revolution for the 2008 season, with former Discovery Channel team manager Johan Bruyneel taking control of the team with the experienced Frenchman Alain Gallopin as chief directeur sportif.

Bruyneel has unified the best riders from the Discovery Channel team and Astana to create one of the super teams of the 2008 UCI ProTour. The team is named after the capital of Kazakhstan and financed by some of the country’s biggest companies but is registered in Luxembourg for 2008.

Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, the USA’s Levi Leipheimer and Germany’s Andreas Klöden are the team’s stage race leaders and all have the talent to win any stage race in 2008. Another stage racer expected to emerge is 24 year-old Janez Brajkovic. The Slovenian rider won the Tour of Georgia in 2007, showing his climbing and time trial ability.
