    It seems Rasmussen can't find a team, not surprising really.

    Why do you think Vinokourov is is listed as a reserve rider? escape scrutiny during the lead up? no doubt he'll be given a last minute start ;)

    It would be very interesting to discuss this situation... Vino can race in Vuelta because he has a spot in the team created just because of him and for him, while Rasmussen can't find the team which would provide him a place in Vuelta, although Vino's sins look worse. Politics.
    It's a pity that Rasmussen can't race. After two years it would be very interesting to see what he can do on these climbs against Spaniards. And, on the other hand, it's not such gain having Vino in the race (I think).
    I'd say: it's bigger loss for the race not having Rasmussen in it, than it's gain having Vino.
