ricco and vino in one team is like my wet dream

Your wet dream is a team led by dopers...

I thought everyone hated LA and the entire RS team because they were a team of dopers.

Now I am truly confused.

Astana could be in trouble

With Contador leaving, Astana might struggle trying to put together a decent team of riders and management team. With the troubles Astana has had in recent years (payroll, missed deadlines, etc.), without Contador or anyone considered as a strong DS, and especially if Vino asserts himself as the leader of the team, attracting quality riders will most likely be a problem.

They might even lose some of their sponsors without a certainty of a top Peloton name. Vino is still strong but for however long he continues to ride he is always going to be looked at as 'damaged goods'.
