Marc Biver may quit as Astana manager

Marc Biver may quit his job as general manager of Astana, the Kazakhstan-based team that had a string of doping troubles after three of its riders, Matthias Kessler, Alexander Vinokourov and Andrey Kashechkin, were caught for doping.

According to French paper Le Matin Biver will make an announcement in the near future. The conditions set forth by the Swiss were not accepted by the Kazakh directors of the team. The team has a Swiss license, but otherwise is entirely backed by Kazakh enterprises. The riders had to sit out for a month according to the Code of Ethics enforced by the UCI.
