Ilnur Zakarin to join Gazprom-RusVelo in 2021

The Russian team Gazprom-RusVelo and Ilnur Zakarin have signed a two-year contract. 
Major professional achievements of Zakarin include stage victories at Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and a third place in general classification at La Vuelta.

Grand Tour and stage-race specialist Ilnur Zakarin is glad to return to the team where he competed for two seasons in 2013 and 2014: “I had an offer to stay in the World Tour, however when Renat (Khamidulin) contacted me and offered to join Gazprom-RusVelo I changed my mind. It is an exciting feeling to return to the team which played a vital role in my cycling career and where I would feel like home, because I know almost every teammate in person. The same applies to team Sport Director Dmitry Konyshev with whom we have worked and achieved great results together.”
Zakarin continues:
“Speaking about my goals, I would like to be straight on the point — my aim is not to only share my experience, but to demonstrate maximum and achieve new victories with the team. We have already talked with team management about the race calendar of 2021. The stage-races in the first part of season will be my main focus and I will do my best to be at my peak form in spring.”
