2003 Amstel Gold Race winner Alexandre Vinokourov has had a quiet start to the season, with no storming performances in races like Paris-Nice or the Vuelta a Pais Vasco. The T-Mobile rider will be one of the team's leaders for Sunday, but doesn't seem to be at his best year. "In Paris-Nice I was one of the strongest in the final few days," he told Het Nieuwsblad. "In Pais Vasco the form improved another notch. We'll have to wait and see whether it's enough for the Amstel. I don't hide that this year there is really only one race in my head, and that is the Tour. But that doesn't mean that I will limit myself to following in the Amstel."
