If Nikolai Proskurin, the vice-president of the Kazakh cycling federation, has his way, Team Astana General Manager Marc Biver will be leaving the team. "Hiring Biver at the start of the year was our biggest mistake," he said.
According to Radsport-Aktiv.de, Proskurin said in an interview with the Kazakh magazine, Our Sport, "It is 150 percent certain, that he won't work for us in 2008. We have had good discussions with Johan Bruyneel. We want him as Biver's successor. Johan enjoys a good reputation in cycling."
