Vadim Pronskiy extends with Astana Qazaqstan Team
Kazakh rider Vadim Pronskiy (25) extended his agreement with Astana Qazaqstan Team for another season of 2024.
“The first half of the season turned out to be very difficult and exhausting. Due to sickness, viruses, days and whole weeks of preparation were falling out, so it was impossible to complete a full and good training cycle, to get prepared properly to the races. But it happens, not always everything goes as planned. However, both for the team and for me, the season finale was much more successful: the guys achieved a set of excellent results, while I was able to prove myself and to finish the season quite optimistically. I am very happy to extend my contract with the team, to stay in Astana in 2024, I think this year can be much more successful. Everyone is determined to achieve success, show high results, and I am no exception”, – said Vadim Pronskiy.
In 2023 Vadim Pronskiy completed two Grand Tours, the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a España as well as finished 5th overall in Le Tour de Langkawi.
“Up until this season, Vadim had a smooth good growth both in terms of results and in terms of gaining experience at important races of the WorldTour calendar, including the Grand Tours. But this season due to sickness, the winter and spring training turned out to be blurred, which is why it was not possible to achieve great results. But, in the final, he managed to perform well at Le Tour de Langkawi, and the end of the year turned out to be quite optimistic. We know what we have to work on in the new season, and with the normal development of events 2024 will definitely be a successful and breakthrough year for Vadim. He has everything he needs for this – youth, strength, motivation and experience”, – said Alexandr Vinokurov, General Manager of Astana Qazaqstan Team.
