No, I’m not talking about the current curflufle about the 2010 L-B-L. The fact Vinokourov thought to buy the race is so old school that I can almost applaud it. Better than doping I say. Hell, in the past even race organizers have tired to fix races. No, the fix I’m talking about the fact that Worldcom, I mean Qwest… no I mean Centurylink has sent a new, working modem to my house and power of the internet is now only limited by the very machine I’m typing on. Which actually limits it quite a bit.
As for the actual race fixing I’ll send you over to cyclocosm where you can read and watch “How the race was won”. I will say that he may have bought the race for a mere 100,000 euros, both him and Kolobnev had to bust their ass to get into that position. That’s it really. By the by, how did the “journalist” get these emails between the two protagonist?
So while I get back to work on some things that actually matter you can watch a clip from said bought race below.
