Oregonian Chris Horner was left off the team as Astana announced its lineup for the Tour de France this morning, with its challenge built around 2007 winner Alberto Contador as its leader and seven-time champion Lance Armstrong.
"One spot would go to a Kazakh, for the sponsors. Dmitriy Muravyev got it."
The Kazakh sponsors that had to be publicated leaned-on just to pay what they were already contractually obligated to? Dmitriy who? Horner deserves to be on the Tour team.
