Cycling: Vinokourov will race in individual time trial

Kazakhstan professional cyclist Aleksandr Vinokourov will race for one more Olympic gold medal in the individual time trial, Tengrinews.kz reports, citing Tastanbek Yessentayev, director of Kazakhstan's High Performance Sport Department of the Sports and Physical Education Agency as saying in an interview to Vesti.kz.

“Alexandre Vinokourov is now training in line with his schedule. On August 1 Aleksandr Vinokourov and Asan Bazayev will participate in the individual time trial. We have ordered a bicycle for him already. Everything will be as planned and without any changes,” Yessentayev said.

Aleksandr Vinokourov has already won the first gold medal for Kazakhstan in the London Olympics flattening the road race's favorite Mark Cavendish along the way. His victory was a huge disappointment for British press and drove The Daily Mail so low as to insult him and Kazakhstan by calling Vinokourov "nobody" on its front cover.

Aleksandr Vinokourov covered the 248-kilometer road race in 5 hours 45 minutes and 57 seconds, leaving behind Columbia’s Rigoberto Uran at the last meters of the race. Alexander Kristoff of Norway came third.
