The Kelme could file to Alexandre Vinokurov

Alexandre Vinokurov, third in the past Tour of France, could be the trick of the Kelme equipment for the next edition of the French race, once the Spanish equipment is pending to close the budget and the group for season 03/04.

The Kelme at the moment shuffles the possibility of incorporating to Homemade, winning Angel of Return 2001 and two runners and between the most probable options is more the one of the Spanish Mikel Zarrabeitia.

The rest of draftees will depend on the budget that will be closed Friday with the company/signature of the sponsorship of the Community of Valencia. The pattern of the equipment, Pepe Quiles, did not discard to Efe Radio the possibility of filing to Vinokurov, at the moment in the rows of the T-Mobile, where they militate among other Jan Ullrich, Paolo Savoldelli, Santiago Botero and Erik Zabel.

The sport director del Kelme, Vicente Belda, more far saw the possibility of contracting al cycling kazajo and was trusted receiving the invitation del Tour of France in the 25 year del anniversary del equipment and its present group, to weighing of which its figure, Alexander Valverde, discarded to go to the French race. "Valverde does not want to go to the Tour, but if the draftee of Caretaker takes shape, and with Rubén Seat, Paschal Rodriguez and other runners I believe that we do not have bad equipment to go", it indicated Belda.

Belda stressed that the names of the draftees will be known shortly and added that on Vinokurov "there is nothing, although Pepe Quiles will know".

a week or so ago and only recently "rescued" I just wonder if this is true where they're going to get the money for Vino's salary and the likely quite hefty buy-out?

It reads even in it's broken translation as old news, like speculation from several months ago?

I'm not really sure what it's saying, but best as I can tell, they only HOPE to get Vino. It sounds like he isn't there yet.

He did a lot of work solo last year so moving for him would probably not be too bad. I wonder if people feel it would make Lances chances better, worse or the same.
