Kashechkin to Liberty

Andrei Kashechkin (Credit Agricole) will be following his Kazakhstani compatriot Alexandre Vinokourov to Liberty Seguros-Würth, signing a four year deal with Manolo Saiz's squad today. Liberty also announced the arrival of another Kazakhstani, Serguei Yakovlev (T-Mobile), and Spaniard Jose Antonio Redondo, who will come across from the Würth-Liberty Seguros under-23 team.

"Kashechkin is a cyclist who has demonstrated a solid progression this season, crowned with his second place in the young rider's classification in the Tour de France," said Manolo Saiz. "He is still young, but at 25 years old and five years as a professional, he is already a mature rider and gain for our team, which continues to be reinforced for next season."
