Much of Astana Pro Team’s 2017 season was overshadowed by the tragedy of Michele Scarponi’s death in April. Yet the team bravely battled on, and in 2018, even if Scarponi will always be a part of Astana Pro Team’s collective memory, a new chapter opens for the longstanding Kazakh UCI WorldTour team. Astana Pro Team’s primary goal will be to perform well in the Grand Tours, despite the lack of an obvious replacement for their former star stage racer Fabio Aru, who has moved on to UAE Team Emirates.
