Now, does that sound like Astana are going to have their licence pulled?
On what grounds?
Bruyneel has departed and with him will have gone all those mysterious financial problems.
McQuaid has got nil cause and thats about the sum of it.
I think this is right but you still have the issue of a severely depleted Astana with a new manager who has no real management team to just plug in. He's going to have to build it from scratch. How one does that and sign enough riders to meet the Pro Tour criteria to be a licensee is beyond me. But hook or by crook, I think Astana will get it done. Here's hoping the find some decent riders for Alberto and to make an overall competitive team in the other races.
