So is he supposed to be The Thing? Or The Incredible Hulk? Neither seems particularly conducive to being a cyclist, or particularly linked to Vino’s personality—The Thing was part of a team and relied on the abilities of three other superheros, and Bruce Banner, the Hulk’s initial human form, is a brilliant physicist.
I suppose one could take Vino’s muttery press conferences as the quiet, intentional reserve Banner shows when not hulked out. Other than turning green, Vino’ does have many Hulk-like attributes on the bike—but it’s hard to imagine someone as smart at Bruce Banner continuing to insist he never doped.

Of course, that’s not the Hulk. It’s the Thing. Perhaps more suitable.
Vino is becoming a caricature-cartoon character.
Does he have some PR/Style consultant? Or is this really his vision of himself?
So bizarre, but maybe he doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks anymore.
Vino’s appeal always lay his seemingly inhuman ability to take punishment — like he was some hardened Gulag prisoner who’d made it across the steppes alone on foot and now was racing a bike for kicks. I’ll admit that, post-drugs, it’s a little hard to engage in flights of fancy like that, but so far I’m game.
The whole image looks drug induced. the intent must be lost in translation, Borat must be his PR consultant.
This past weekend, George Hincappie won the stars and stripes for the third time. His first win was way back in 1998. Not only is he getting up there in age, but he broke is collar bone five weeks ago.
This seems to me like the perfect storm for a doping allegation. Why isn’t Big George Hincappie more of a lightning rod??
Cosmo, why do you give Big White George Hincappie a free ride, but question Usain Bolt? I think you would be much more senstitve in your remarks if there were more black men and women in the peloton, but you have to take a good look at yourself and ask that question.
Your IP address is still 184.108.40.206, same as the other two names you’ve used to post from here. Try posting from home next time you want to sock-puppet.
You could be bouncing your packets through someone else’s computer, but I feel like the College Board would protect their infrastructure a little better than that. Maybe I’ll send them an email and ask.
Even if you weren’t really, really bad at the Internet, your arguments are so poor that they reveal both your identity and your idiocy—no one here takes you seriously. Do yourself a favor and find someone else to troll.
erikv is right – it’s The Thing. The Thing is made of rock, remember? “It’s clobberin’ time!” Sigh – oh Vino, tacky, tacky.
