Yeah, Vino showed that old dogs can still learn new tricks. Everybody and their mother thought it was gonna come down to the sprinters, but Vino and Rigoberto Uran showed that if you dropped the sprinters, then there'll be no sprint (amongst the usual suspects) at the finish for the win.
Also, Vino showed the 25year old Uran that experience (and maybe a little treachery) trumps youth most of the time. I watched the race, and I thought Uran could have won it if he had not let Vino hide behind his wheel or if he knew when to jump.
