It's a sobering thought anyway for Bike Geeeek followers.
How dare you have such thoughts?
Get back on the hype train! :angry

Now, I see where you're coming from.
But bear in mind that #06astana was at the time born from the necessity to find a sponsor for what was then the team Vino himself was racing for, and has continued in that vein ever since.
Of course the development of *kz cycling is also part of the team's philosophy - but it takes a distant backseat to making benefit for glorious nation of Kazakhstan (by winning races with big foreign names) and giving Vino a toy to play with.

For #academy it's the other way around: The team exists to develop *il cycling (and, not to forget, riders from other "non-traditional" cycling nations) first and foremost. Sure, the exploits of Sagiv, Yechezkel, the Goldsteins etc. are given particular attention - but I'm sure the people behind the project won't be any less happy if and when Räim, Lemus, Turek, Perry, Schreurs etc. break through.
