It would have been cooler if the picture on the Jersey was him shooting all the top riders with syringes out of a blow gun.

Doping jokes are rarely funny.

Ah, didn't mean it so much to be a joke about doping as much as a joke about how absurd of a thing that is to wear.

Nope. It's real.

From Velonews:

"Vinokourov lined up Tuesday in the French Castillon-La Bataille criterium without a formal team, racing instead with a jersey emblazoned with his photo in an Astana jersey and the phrase, “Vino 4ever.”"

I love online Photoshop "experts."

Oh no, its not. He wore it in his first race, as he isn't formally back in the Astana fold.

I know that doping jokes are not funny but how can anyone believe that hes not doping. Once a con, always a con. So to me, if he wins one, people will say, well, the doper won.

me would at least.

I believe wholeheartedly that he was a he doped. I still don't think jokes like meatpant's are funny. Separate issues

Yeah,

I saw a pic of him, I think on Velonews, and I thought they were doing some Montage think. I didn't realize it was just a pic of him in his jersey.
