    Pro Team Astana will provisionally suspend rider Andrey Kashechkin, effective immediately, for failure to agree to the squad's internal regulations. The Kazakhstan rider remains on the 2013 team roster, but can not be included in race calendar submissions until his signature is received on Pro Team Astana's internal Code of Conduct.

  • Refusal to dope?

    Can't imagine their terms are particularly stringent.
    Maybe he's a stooge to make the rest of the team appear clean.

    Too dirty for Astana? How long before he signs for Katusha?

    The difference being RadioShack probably didn't have recourse to the Kazakh mob :wink: maybe kashechkin will go quietly and succumb to a mysterious back injury.
  • Reputation repair is the toughest thing in the world. When you have a bad reputation you have to be extra good, and go lot of extra miles.
    Perhaps Astana are simply trying to do the right thing? They announced this on their own website, not under threat of being outed, not under the weight of gossip and speculation.
    Teams with a good reputation on the other hand, can bang a loud drum in the front, whilst pushing people out the back door, and continue to be applauded.

    Astana want to be members of MPCC, they need to walk the walk. Where as teams with a good reputation probably wouldn't bother applying to join :wink:
