Default Vino bought the 2010 LBL?

Apologies if this is posted elsewhere. Swiss mag L'Illustre is accusing Vino of paying Kolobnev 100,000 euro to let him win the 2010 LBL.

The last Vino quote is hilarious, he says he often loans money left and right. I wonder which side of Vino you have to stand on to get a "$100k loan."

OK, I haven't been able to pay any attention to cycling lately, so I've probably missed something, but how did these e-mail get leaked anyway?

Hmm, I was pretty sure hacking into someone's e-mail is a crime in most nations out there.

So we're discussing (not so much in this thread, but this was also posted in General News earlier) riders' reputation, basically everyone in that thread assumes they are guilty just because of their reputation being less than perfect, and yet the only source of this rumor is something that is known and 100% guaranteed criminal activity?

I see a lawsuit coming, and I will support that 100% in this case.

P.S. To kind of put the things in perspective, Kolobnev's salary was estimated to be at least 500.000 euros/year, and possible closer to 750.000 euros

The rumor of riders buying races is as old as bike racing.

What are the chances those who were paid off will say anything

As many accusations that have been hurled over the years there have been no action on any of them (that I remember of).

Maybe the ultimate dope of bike racing, hard cold cash.

so whoever uncovered these emails is alleging that vino used an unsportsmanlike tactic to gain and exploit a competitive edge, and that all of his protests of innocence are lies?

i feel like i've heard that story before.

Anybody know the date of the money transfer?

I could understand Kolobnev borrowing money after his positive test.

I would have thought that a monument win would have been worth a lot more than 100K to Kolobnev since he had a good salary and many second places. Of course, he might have just taken a payout knowing he couldn't win anyways.

From the article

"’Illustre based its report on an exchange of emails between the two racers
dating back to the day after the race"

But yet again, how trustworthy of a source is that?
