Astana changes weekend line-ups

Team Astana has had to change its line-ups for the weekend races, because René Haselbacher has come down with a light illness. He was to have been captain for the team in the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen, but will be replaced by Benoit Joachim, who was originally scheduled to ride the Criterium International. Thomas Frei will step in for him in France.

Astana for Criterium International: Thomas Frei, Andreas Klöden, Alexey Kolessov, Julien Mazet, Andrey Mizurov, Yevgeny Sladkov, Alexander Vinokourov and Sergey Yakovlev.
