Astana to ride Dauphiné incognito

Continuing financial issues for the Astana team mean that they will also ride the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré, which starts tomorrow, with the names of their sponsors removed.

While the required bank guarantee by the UCI has been replenished, all of the payments required to pay the team salaries have still not been received. The one positive side of the situation being that their ProTour license is no longer in danger of being revoked so the team can continue to race.

President of the Kazakh cycling federation Nikolai Proskurin has stated that the payments would be forthcoming, but would seem that the level of trust between the two parties is not there.
