Alexander Vinokourov (Astana)
Vinokourov joined by Brajkovic and Gavazzi
Team Astana held their first training camp in the tail-end of the 2011, and the squad found time to take a set of publicity photos displaying their new team kit, bikes and roster for 2012.
The team's kit remains very much in keeping with its past, and the Specialized bikes are also retained.
The main changes come with the team roster, with a raft of new signings coming in. Andrey Kaschekin makes his move from Lampre permanent and is joined by fellow Lampre castaway Francesco Gavazzi. The team have also bolstered their climbing prowess with Kevin Seeldraeyers joining from Quick Step.
Janez Brajkovic is the biggest star to join. The former Dauphine winner joins from RadioShack and will be the team leader at the Tour de France in July.
