    Alexandre Vinokourov said today that he will continue his career in racing to keep his points for Astana and Kazakhstan in the ranking of the International Cycling Union

    He will focus on Spring classics, the Tour de France most likely will not be included in Vino's plans. For sure Roman Kreuziger is next year Astana's leader for TdF.

    Now there's a steel rode in his leg, it will be removed only after one and half year. But it doesn't prevent to ride.

    It was decided that Vino will be included in management team, all matters relating to personnel, races etc. will be in his sphere of operations.
    Vino still does not exclude that there is a chance to sign Alberto Contador at the end of season 2012. Negotiations for the next season 2012 with other riders still under way, a transfer season is not over.
    Contracts of many of the strongest riders will expire at the end of 2012, Astana will fight for the strengthening of the team in season-2013.
