Firstly, lets hope Vino is alright. What a character he is and and ambassador for the sport.
What is your favourite Vino moment? It can be on or off the bike or it simply could be a quote. I thought Vino deserved a thread for this type of thing as the Crazy Kazakh has brought many moments of joy and humour to many of us.
If this thread is too similar to the Vino comeback thread then could the Mods delete it
I couldnt agree more. And the ITT win at Albi. unfortunately awesome.auscyclefan94 said:Vino's stage win in Loudenvielle (even if he isn't the official winner) will be something I will always remember of him. That guy rode like a true champion. he showed true guts and I was guttered to find out he tested positive but none the less a great vicotry. That victory defines Vino's style.
That was a fun tour! Vino looked amazing...I loved watching him even though I was rooting for Ulle.on3m@n@rmy said:Vino was free to race for himself in the 2003 Tour when Ulle was with Bianchi. The final GC standings that year were.
1 Lance Armstrong (USPS)
2 Jan Ullrich (Team Bianchi)
3 Alexander Vinokourov (Team Telekom)
It was fun to see him in a situation where he did not have to work for someone else.
