luckyboy said:What!? Samruk-Kazyna has as much appeal here as Radio Shack does. Radio Shack have some stores in Australia and one in Belgium - hardly a global marketer
Anyway, I for one hope that Astana get a ProTour license
So, without googling, what does Samruk-Kazyna produce or sell? I get your point about Radio Shack not being global like say Nike or Nissan, but my point was that Radio Shack actually has a marketing budget it can use to boost the sport whereas Samruk-Kazyna is just a government conglomeration that, as far as I can tell, doesn't actually do anything but own other government entities.
