Astana fires Vinokourov

Times Online | Vinokourov fired after positive B-test

Alexandre Vinokourov, who created the Astana team after his Liberty Seguros squad was prevented from riding in last year's Tour, has been fired after Saturday's B-sample test indicated an illegal transfusion.

Tour of Germany organizers have said Astana is not welcome in their race, but organizers confirmed their participation in the Vuelta a España.
