Shefer returns to Astana Qazaqstan staff after Premier Tech departure


Alexandr Shefer has returned to Astana Qazaqstan as lead sports director after a season at Gazprom-RusVelo. The Kazakhstani had previously been part of the team’s management from 2007 but left at the end of 2020 when Premier Tech came on board as a co-sponsor.

Premier Tech sought to remove Alexandre Vinokourov as general manager ahead of this year’s Tour de France only for the team’s Kazakhstani backers to restore him to the helm. Premier Tech has since ceased sponsorship of the team, which has been rebranded as Astana Qazaqstan for 2022.
