A team bus named Astana

Astanaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

I have to tell you.  While I’ve not been the biggest Alexandre Vinokourov fan, I really feel for the guy.  How many riders lost their sponsor, lost their spot in the Tour de France, single handedly got a new sponsor, regained his team’s spot, lost it again, and now…..

What will happen to Astana and Vino when Pat McQaid and Manolo Saiz square off?  Saiz is holding two aces.  One being Astana’s license.  Two being the contracts of Vino and his squad.  If McQuaid is successful in getting the license, what then?

    I thought that Vino and Astana had cut the ties with Saiz. Vino was saying on Velo News that he was confident they would be invited to the races, even without a ProTour license. I’m missing something…I thought Vino was free of Saiz.

    That’s what I thought. It seems that Manolo was only temporarly out. Now he wants back in.
