Any supporters you see wearing Astana cycling team clothing have had a bit of a rocky road over the last few seasons, as a result of both doping issues and financial crisis. Nevertheless two of the most famous cyclists in history, Alberto Contador and Lance Armstrong have both donned Astana cycling jerseys to complete in top events and be part of a very successful period under the management of Johan Bruyneel.
The various problems have resulted in quite a variety of groups of riders wearing the Astana team clothing and then moving on to other teams. The one thing that has remained constant is the main sponsor as displayed on Astana jackets and other team kit and Astana is actually the name of a group of companies from Kazakhstan, that are state owned.
If you were watching for riders wearing the Astana team colours in 2011, you would have seen Alexandre Vinokourov featured quite frequently in stage wins along with Valentin Iglinsky, Paolo Tiralongo (in the Giro d'Italia) and Fredrik Kessiakoff.
Look out for Gasparotto, Kreuziger and Iglinskiy in the turquoise and yellow-orange 2012 Astana jerseys.
