Too bad Horner couldn't get his release from Astana to JOIN a team that actually wanted him for the Tour...now that's a **** move. Keep him off the Tour team - regardless of why - but then don't let him out of his contract so that he could find a ride with a Tour team... Legal? Yes. Sporting? No.Kazistuta said:Horner should join a team where he can get the role of Captain for several key races, he deserves it. That team is NOT Astana.
