Get the word direct from Johan! From his public commentaries about the world of professional cycling to his thoughts about a winning strategy in life, this is the place to hear directly from Johan!

Dear Fans,

Today, the Kazakhstan Cycling Federation (KCF) in cooperation with myself, officially announced a partnership which results in their continued support and commitment to the Astana Pro Cycling Team. The KCF is steadfast in its support of the Astana Team as a part of its global strategy to promote cycling in Kazakhstan.

I will take on the role as Astana Pro Cycling team General Manager beginning in 2008. It was not an easy decision to return to cycling after my recent announcement in August, however, in my new role with Astana I have found new challenges and I am excited to help the Kazakhstan Cycling Federation grow the sport in the country. After the 2007 season, this team had no choice but to make big changes if it wanted to continue on, and I am proud to be the person they have chosen to lead this program.

Under my guidance, the Team will strictly abide by the UCI Pro Team Code of Conduct as well as any and all anti-doping measures agreed to by the UCI or the Team's Union.

Additionally, the Astana Team has taken further measures by subscribing to the anti-doping program developed by Dr. Rasmus Damsgaard and utilized by Team CSC in 2007. The Damsgaard anti-doping system is currently the most effective and comprehensive program available. I hope that the team and myself can continue to count on the support we had from you over the years and that we, as a team, will write more successful pages in cycling history.
