Biography

Andrey Grigorievich Kashechkin (Russian: Андрей Григорьевич Кашечкин, born 21 March 1980) is a Kazakhstani road racing cyclist, who last rode for the UCI ProTour team Astana.

Biography

Kashechkin was born in Kyzyl-Orda, in the former Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic.

After the junior World Championships at Valkenburg, Kashechkin moved to Belgium, where he turned pro in 2001 with the Domo-Farm Frites team. In 2003, he moved to Quick-Step–Davitamon, and the following year to French squad Crédit Agricole.

After two seasons in that team, Kashechkin joined Liberty Seguros–Würth, where he posted good results throughout the 2006 season.

Kashechkin was in 8th place in the overall classification after 15 stages of the 2007 Tour de France. However, his Tour was ended when his Astana team withdrew from the event after team leader Alexander Vinokourov tested positive for blood doping.

Doping

In August 2007, Kashechkin tested positive for blood doping after 2007 Tour de France. He was fired from Astana on 31 August after his B-sample also tested positive.

Kashechkin intended to return to pro cycling in the middle of 2009, but was unable to find a team. In June 2010, it was reported that Kashechkin was in negotiations with Lampre–Farnese Vini, and he later signed with them. In the middle of the 2011 season, however, Lampre released him and he re-signed with Astana in order to ride the Vuelta a España. He had some trouble again at Astana in 2012 and was sidelined after refusing to sign an ethical agreement, although eventually the team reinstated him once he complied. Later, in the 2012 USADA Report into doping on the US Postal team, affidavits revealed he and others went to training camps set up by Dr. Michelle Ferrari.
