Looking back at LBL, the attack the dropped Kolobnev didn't seem like a really hard attack, it just seemed like Vino rode him off his wheel. I'm not saying that Vino did/didn't pay kolobnev off, but it definitely isn't outside the realm of possibilities

Races have been bought and sold since the very early days of the sport. It doesn't happen so often now but it certainly does happen.

Also, its not just money - look at Gilbert's behaviour at the end of the year once he had an agreement to go to BMC.

I move to fold this thread into the Vino Comeback Thread lol. And then create a separate Vino (sub)Forum! Vino4-ever!

(even if against the rules, buying/selling of races and buying the help of other riders/teams for tactical purposes is as old as the sport and it seems a bit out-there for a magazine to suddenly decide to start writing about this, using Vino as an example. was the publication in question a cycling magazine?)

$100,000 for LBL does indeed seem cheap. You'd think that La Doyenne is worth a bit more. We need a poll: how much would it pay to gift
1) MSR
2) RVV
3) PR
4) LBL
5) Lombardia
6) a stage at the Giro
7) at the TdF
8) at the Vuelta
9) the Worlds
10) some other classic

Obviously stages have been gifted for various reasons, so 6-8 are maybe not good examples.

I would say P-R of all the Classics would cost more, then RVV, and L-B-L.

Yeah, that's a lawsuit all right.

I hope Vino will unleash the same badass lawyer on them that made him dodge the UCI fine.
