Impressive Vino, he is back, maybe for Vuelta?

Hmmm... he will announce that he is with Astana soon. he said he will be ridnig for Horner in an overall victory for him and they are on opposite squads at the moment. Wouldn't you ride for people actually on your team? Who knows with Vino?
 
Not exactly opposite teams... Astana's licence is held by the Kazak cycling federation and no doubt the Kazak national team that Vino is riding for is also run by the KCF. It's almost like there is an Astana 'A' and an Astana 'B' squad in the same race.
 
I include the hyperlinks because they enhance my brilliant humor - lol

Doesn't appear if he has his legs back just yet. Abandoned the last stage of de l'Ain at the bottom of the final ascent.

No worries...this is a classic euro-pro "I'm too good to suffer for suffering's sake, and besides, I have a periodized, customized, me-me-me-schedule devised by a gynecologist in Navarra that didn't call for such an effort" training move. Unable to muster any hope whatsoever of not getting shelled on the final climb and made to look like a knob on TV and in the Forums, the smart euro-pro abandons at the base of the climb (or just before) while still with the leaders, musters a wry grin for the photog's and offers a cryptic quote about everything "falling into place" (delivered in the voice of Mr. Burns from The Simpsons).

Like, duhhhh.

Classic post Joe. Of course if he was a domestique he would have said "my job was over"

Joe, have you coincidentally discovered the whereabouts of an old, sly fox who hasn't changed his old habits, or is this a new prodigious vagina-deviate-turned-hematologist-dilettante? Navarra, is that where he operates now...

Why don't these doctors use ADAMS, so UCI/WADA can compare the data and see overlap, whenever a doctor and a mass congregation of cyclist show up in a certain area...

Oh, and I find it unfair that you call Vino a Euro-pro. Despite the fact that he doesn't have to cross a pond, and is stuck to the main continent, doesn't mean that Kazachs are European. He is a Central-Asian pro... ;)

So did Astana officially announce his return and I missed it, or are they hoping no one will notice?

I'm glad you pointed this out, not me, being from that side of the pond.
Vino is Eurasian, not European.
Anyhow, I seem to recall Lance quiting Paris-Nice, after two days, in 2005, because of a bit of snow.
Top dogs, no matter what ethnicity, wag their own tails.
