Alright so vino just rode his last official course but with Vino you never know.

And he likes to ride so much. I think after a few months he's like "Damn i want to ride again, oh whatever one more year."

So I think he'll return next year although it's nice to end like this but I don't think he'll be able to resist to ride in gold :D
 
nope
i honestly think this will be his last year as a rider.i even think that donostia was his last race

don't worry,we will also have fun with vino as a DS and with vino as president of kazakhstan(not so much fun for uzbekistan and turkmenistan though :D )

Vino as teamleader will be so fun.

"If you don't attack each day, no food in the evening" He might actually do that lol

He came back this year because he didn't want his career to end with him being carried out of the bushes in the tour by his teammates, not a very pretty last career image to leave people with. Now though he has left people with a great last image, so I don't think he will be back.

Of course it wouldn't be a surprise or disappointment to me if he did come back :D, I'd like to see Vino in a gold kit.

Did he ride today wearing the jersey with rings?
Sporza commentators said he showed up at the start with that jersey, but that he changed before the race actually started, so no.

Vino like Elvis will always be there! Has he even left the building? Nope :D

I would bet good money we'll see him riding his bike with Team Astana next year, especially at the camps and GT reconnaissance rides.

Race? Well luckily the OP didn't say ProTour, I bet he goes to a Grand Fondo or two if time permits and of course to raise cycling awareness ;)

He's done - what better way to end your career than with a gold medal.
Better, would be:

1. Winning le Tour (probably the best way to go out)
2. Winning one of the other GT's
3. Winning a Spring Classic or two.
4. Winning any of the other Classics.
5. Winning one of the Pre GT week long races.
6. Winning one of the up and coming classic to be races that everyone is talking about.
7. Winning a highly paid out Post Tour Crit. :)
8. Winning his local Country, State, County, City race.
9. Maybe Olympic Gold after that.

:D

You don't seriously believe the bolded part right? You think the Dauphine is more glamorous than winning the Olympics?

The quality of the race has to factor in history and past winners, Olympics so far is pretty lame, Dauphine has a richer history by far!

Still Olympics are bigger than cycling. It's about sport as a whole, so it will always have a special place for every athlete.
