If Kess can get back to his old level he will be a strong man to have to. Indeed the team looks very good on paper. But in the Vuelta there is allways someone off form :o

Kessiakoff has a history of good autumn form but this year has been so abysmal I wouldn't be suprised if he retires rather than come to Vuelta in any kind of form.

I must admit I was somewhat worried at the start of the season that he may have stagnated a bit. But how he has been racing lately I think he'll be up there in LBL in just a couple of years :):)

What happened with Kessiakoff? Once he was quite good, but this year is tragic.

What's going on with Lutsenko? I've heard he'll ride the mighty Tour of Almaty with Nbali, i think he could very well on this years Lombardia course. Why was he not selected for the wc road race or the itt?

He was very strong in the Vuelta. really suprised me on the stage Anacona won. Was clearly the 2nd strongest, but deided to stick on HEsjedals wheel when Anacona went.


+ Astana puts more weight on having their biggest names in Almaty ratherthan in Italy

He did not ride the WC because he was riding the Asian Games TT and won it. Though it was strange not to send him to the WC road race instead of Zeits or Dyachenko. I think he could have been in the top 10.

I have no idea if he will ride Lombardia, more likely he will ride Tour of Almaty.

Had not noticed that. Well done Lutsenko!
Probably not the greatest competitors though :p
