Vino’s Descent to Gap in 2003
In an earlier post I mentioned the swashbuckling attacks that Alexandre Vinokourov would launch in Tour’s past. Now that Vino is hurting and pretty much out of contention for the 2007 Tour lets look at one of Alexandre Vinokourov’s finer moments, his stage win at Gap in 2003. This is the Tour where everyone seemed to be putting the hurt on Lance. Even a doped up Tyler Hamilton who was racing with a broken collarbone (that’s a whole ‘nother story) gee, who’d a thought he wasn’t doping?
Vino was a thorn in Lance’s side attacking at the craziest moments such as the descent into Gap that resulted in Joseba Beloki’s eventual career ending crash.
