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?
