Mark Renshaw joins Astana Qazaqstan Team as Sports Director

The Australian ex-pro Mark Renshaw (40), who collaborated with Astana Qazaqstan Team during the last Tour de France as a sprint and lead-out consultant, is going to join the Kazakh project in 2024 as a Sports Director.

“I am very excited to be taking on a Director Sportif role with Astana Qazaqstan for the upcoming 2024 season. After working on the Tour de France alongside the staff & riders at Team Astana Qazaqstan I knew that I have more to give professional cycling. With the support of my amazing family, to get back into elite sport I believe I can help lead our talented riders to victories in some of the biggest and best races on the calendar. I need to thank Alexandr Vinokurov for giving me this opportunity to pass on my experience to the team. We have some huge objectives ahead of us in 2024 and I can’t wait to work on achieving these goals with the team”, – said Mark Renshaw.


“We had a very good experience with Mark Renshaw during the Tour de France. His help and advice were very useful not only in the matter of sprint issues but also in general in the matter of race strategy. We had a nice conversation afterwards; we have a common vision on many things about the team development through the prism of conducting the races and preparation to it. So, I believe that having a young Sports Director with a different modern vision to cycling would help us to keep on improving”, – said Alexandr Vinokurov, General Manager of Astana Qazaqstan Team.
