Was debating where to post this, in the general news thread, here or in the vino thread.

Anyway, Vino just got his own bike brand, that has been in development for two years, it's manufactured in Kazakhstan, and will be used in the Vino-4-Ever team, and he does not exclude that the will be in use in the Astana team soon. Under the unveiling Aru, Tiralongo, Murayev and Bazajev where all present together with Vino.

This is my man. First time he makes me happy in almost two years.
He was rather impressive in the tour last year. Being Birdsongs last man in the high mountains more than 1 time. Other than that, he hasn't been that great indeed.

It's about time he made good on some of the potential he's shown. Hope he keeps it up.

yes. Was supposed to do the giro, but couldn't after the passport trouble he and Iglinsky had.
Yeah, i know the giro story. Man, that could be one hell of a team for the Vuelta with him, Kangert, Landa & Aru. Maybe they could even bring Guardini for the sprints.

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 :eek:

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.

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
