Vinokourov ousted from his position as manager of Astana-Premier Tech a few days before the Tour de France – .


Alexandre Vinokourov was reportedly forced to quit his position as Astana-Premier Tech team manager just two days before the start of the Tour de France.

The 47-year-old, who had held the post since his retirement from racing at the end of 2012 – and who was instrumental in founding the team after the Liberty Seguros withdrawal in 2006 – was fired with immediate effect, according to French journal The team. Runners and team staff were notified via email Thursday at midnight.
