Transfer News: Astana Sign Omar Fraile

Astana Proteam announces a two-year agreement with Spanish rider Omar Fraile (for 2018 and 2019) who is leaving Dimension Data

“Astana is one of the biggest and most famous teams in the peloton, and for me it will be a great honor to become a part of this project for the next two years. In previous seasons I’ve made a big step ahead in my development as a professional rider, and I hope, I will continue it in Astana Team. I really like the style of Astana Team and its great focus on the Grand tours, – said Omar Fraile.

Omar Fraile (27) is a professional rider since 2013. In the season of 2015 he’s got a serious attention on himself after winning a King of Mountain jersey of the Vuelta a España and Vuelta al País Vasco and after taking two wins at Italian one-day race Giro dell’Appennino and at a stage of the 4 Jours de Dunkerque. He repeated his success in the mountain classification of the Vuelta a España in 2016, while in the current season Fraile took a nice victory at a stage of the Giro d’Italia and became second in the general classification of the Tour of Yorkshire.

Alexandr Vinokurov: Omar is a very strong climber, who can be a good strengthening for our team at the Grand tours. He can do well in any kind of climbs, but also he could be a strong part of the team in the team time trial races. We’ve been watching this athlete for a while, and this season he’s impressed us at the Giro d’Italia. I am sure, Fraile will be able to fully reach his potential in our team”.
