Pretty clear from the poll that with the "B" sample in, change must come and Vinokurtov must be exiled.

Barring the positive "A" sample of a cartoon character, this one might be safe.

We shall always admire the heart of the warrior, despite his fatal flaws.

Welcome Racer_Ex ! When you are not racing let me borrow that super-hero weapon of yours. I could sure use it to get to the front of the peloton in the crits around here.

The irony is compelling: now Vino is an Ex-Racer.

By the way, if you expend too much family income on bike schwag, you can actually become your own wife's Racer-Ex. But it is worth the risk. Besides, the babes would be lining up to date the newly single Pcad. Just ask blonduathlongrl.

Don't be taking the name of Speed Racer in vain.

Vinokurtov has retired permanently. He's returned to Kazakhstan to drink fermented goat's milk and hunt game with Jan Ulrich. In four years he'll be 51, too damn old to get signed on anywhere.

Racer Ex however, doesn't age.

Did Richard and Guido retire with Vino? The race reports wouldn't be the same without them.
