Bringin' it Old Skool

At Cyclingnews:

The 35-year-old former Astana rider was in the Netherlands for a trade mission, accompanied by the Kazakh minister for sport, Anatoliy Kulnazarov, who told Telegraaf, "I assume that Vinokourov will ride next season. Naturally he will be in the Astana team."

Even though Astana spokesperson Philippe Maertens did not wish to comment on the report officially, it thus seems clear with which squad Vinokourov will make his comeback to racing. The question remains when exactly next year he will be allowed to do so.


Can't say Astana's Optics are looking good nor does that TdF invite.

Vino's smoking something. Maybe he'll share some with all those folks blaming Lance's no show at the Tour of Georgia for it not happening this year (ahem, Cyclingnews).

How about Schumacher insisting he's innocent of doping and that his contract with Quick Step is valid. Are you f'ing kidding me? Dude needs one of those glass stomachs so he can see what's really going on in the world around him.

Is cherotl a derivative of Geritol? LOL! ;-)

What gets me is that people like Vino or Schumacher actually believe that anyone wants them on their team! I'm pretty sure (NOT) that Bruyneel is excited about this prospect... And what about Contador and the Tour? Oh yeah, he'll be invited for sure now. :( What a total cluster f**k.
