CN is reporting that Vladamir Gusev will not be taking part in the Oly Games after his sacking by Astana. Apparently the Russian Federation decided it didn't want to risk Goose winning the thing. That or they caved under pressure form the IOC.
Menchov will replace him in the TT and will race with lots of other Vlads (Efimkin and Karpets) in the RR. Ivanov and whoever they can drag off the "beach" will support.
