Igor Abakoumov (born 30 May 1981)[2] is a professional road bicycle racer. Born in Berdyansk in the Soviet Union (now Ukraine), Abakoumov became a naturalized Belgian citizen on 15 September 2001. He turned professional in 2002. Abakumov was left in limbo by his former team, Astana, when the sponsors pulled the plug on funds following a drugs scandal.[3] He now rides for ISD Continental Team.
