The Kazak and Tex walk into a bar........

and attack each other

it would be like old times watching Vino attack his teamates and Lance ordering Contradoper and Levi to chase him down

Please tell me Vino will come back. He may never win the tour, but I am sure his style of racing has not changed.

Astana is going to fit into the classic idiom of Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians.

Who are all the chiefs on Astana? Even if they got Vino, which I'm sure they're not even remotely interested in, only Lance and Contador are capable of winning the tour. Two leaders on the biggest and best team is hardly ground breaking.

"Too many chiefs" only applies if Bruyneel can't manage them.

Astana not interested in Vino? i'm sure they are.. but they are also forced into having him ride due to their main sponsor... he'll be back, but it will be after the 2009 tour.

Looks like McQuaid wants him to serve a 2 year suspension before letting him back in which would mean no tour. Apparently the kazakh fed gave him only year.

They're fighting a PR battle to appear clean. You think they want to hire a guy that got booted from the tour?

Astana signs Vino and gets instantly disinvited from the the Tour. You people really think after what Vino did ASO would allow him or any team he was affiliated with to race in one of their events? Get off the pipe people.
