Zubeldia gives his Astana debut in France

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.
