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?

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

Quote:
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?
