Vino has been always incredible! always doing something unexpected and making our day when the day is boring and the race seems to be stucked... I love to see how other ppl say awesome things about him and they remember things that I barely remember... I cried when he won Liege - Bastogne - Liege this year... and I was really happy to see him in pink for 5 days in Il Giro...

Today's stage was epic... the only thing that missed today was his stage victory... but that is going to happen... I'm quite sure, he will win an stage doing as he only knows as to do it... as a maniac :D

That carton is soooo ******* funny!!!!

"Vino will attack at the hotel, the bus, at the buffet..." OMFG this is hilarious!

"Vino is always attacking EVERYONE, even YOU..." someone here in the forum said it... EPIC!

Despite what the CN report says the only person Contador was looking for was Vino this afternoon, looking for him to get back on for the sprint and the victory he so deserved today. He has been superb this whole tour so far, playing picnic hamper last Sunday, shielding Berto and the rest of the real climbers in the squad, attacking when he can, awesome. I hope he does get a stage but if not I bet the Bertie Bonus come Paris will not be a pittance.

I can't say he's riding clean but we can't say that for any of them.

I like Vino's racing style, but I do admit I had mixed feelings when I saw him win Luik-Bastenaken-Luik this year.

Vino doesn't exist. He's Chuck Norris disguised as a cyclist :D

Vino is riding the way Lance should have ridden last year. Lucky Contador, he has three super domestiques, Tiralongo and Navarro on climbing and Vinokourov on tactical objectives.

Vino seems to love his role, too. Winning isn't as personally important now as simply being important and making an impact on the race for the team.

And this team pulls together. It's evident in the post-race interviews and the praise the leaders heap onto the other teammates. Gosh, I'm turning into an Astana fanboy.

Awesome display, today.
Great attack and Contador plays the consumate domestique, screwing up the chasing peloton.

You just have to admit that Vino is one of the most interesting riders. One who can really animate a race. This stage win is well deserved.

I'll third that. At least twice, he forced the chase to swarm. very nice teamwork.
