Spanish cyclist Haimar Zubeldia will do his first race for his new Astana team at the Tour du Haut Var in France (February 21-22). Zubeldia moved from Euskaltel-Euskadi to Astana at the end of last season.

Zubeldia will wear number 51 in the race in Southern France. "I think I am going well, I have trained all winter without any mishaps, but it is the first race of the season and of course I have no references," Zubeldia said.

Zubeldia will race Haut Var for the first time, but he knows a little bit about the race. "It is an event with a certain difficulty, due to its undulating terrain and the constant ups and downs. It will also be cold."

The next races for Zubeldia are the Giro de Cerdeña (February 24-28) and the GP Lugano on March 1.
