    Vino's suspension has expired -- correct?

    Wasn't July 24th the end of Alexander Vinokourov's two-year suspension?

    Presumably he will be back at Astana (actually the shell of Astana -- without Bruyneel, Armstrong, Kloden, Leipheimer and others).

    I'm a little surprised that I haven't seen any articles about his return. Has anyone heard anything?

    Sheriff: All alone?
    Mattie Ross: I am the person for it. Mama was never any good at sums and she could hardly spell “CAT”.

    Yeah, he's back. In this VeloNews article his return is chronicled.

    Vinokourov lined up Tuesday in the French Castillon-La Bataille criterium without a formal team, racing instead with a jersey emblazoned with his photo in an Astana jersey and the phrase, “Vino 4ever.”
    Now who else would race with a jersey featuring a photo of himself? Maybe Hinault? That's why I love Vino.

    My question about all of the drama surrounding the new Astana: Will it make benefit glorious nation of Kazakhstan?
