Trek Signs with Astana

Trek Bicycle Corporation today announced that the Astana Cycling Team has chosen Trek to be the official team bike and clothing supplier for the 2008 season and beyond. Starting on January 1, 2008, Team Astana will rely on the proven technology of Trek OCLV Carbon to provide them with the lightest, fastest, and best handling bikes in the pro peloton.

Riders like defending Tour de France Champion Alberto Contador and U.S. Road Champion Levi Leipheimer will count on the cutting-edge technology and superior ride characteristics of the all-new Madone for all-around workhorse duties in races like the Tour of California, Tour of Georgia, and Tour of Missouri, as well as at the highest level of professional events on the calendar. For time trial events, Astana riders will race against the clock aboard the fastest bike on the circuit, the wind-cheating Equinox TTX.

"We're excited to be part of the new Astana and to continue racing at the sport's highest level," notes Trek's President, John Burke. "What counts here is having the best riders on the best bikes. We have faith in Johan [Bruyneel] and we're fired up about working with riders like Levi and Alberto."

Editor's Note: This announcement was almost a foregone conclusion after a huge portion of the Discovery program moved over to Astana
