The CyclingNews says the UCI is prepared to contest any plans on a return to competitive cycling by Alexander Vinokourov. The UCI dropped plans to appeal his case to the CA when he retired, but rumors persist that he is training for the Olympics and the UCI vows this will not be allowed:
"We have had indirect reports that Vinokourov is training again," said UCI legal adviser Philippe Verbiest to AFP. "Should it appear that Vinokourov really is training for a comeback we will start up the appeal procedure again." According to the Belga news agency, the Kazakh cycling federation has made little secret of its desire to see the 34 year-old participate in the Beijing Olympics.
