Vino, Time to go Home: song dedicated to Astana boss advises him to leave cycling (video)
From the people who brought you the Alberto Contador love song comes a stark warning to Alexandre Vinokourov
A few weeks ago Cycling Weekly brought you news of a love song recorded for Alberto Contador by Muax Enrico, and he’s at it again, but this time with a more serious message.
Vino, Time to go Home is not, repeat not, a love song according to the short email sent to CW HQ.
“The very famous Dottore Muax is happy to present his latest new release "Vino, time to go home", a rap dedicated to all the cheaters in and around peloton, represented in the song by Vino,” the email said.
As we discovered last time, Muax is an Italian-born ‘artist’ now living in Germany who has already recorded love songs to Jens Voigt, Andreas Kloden and Andre Greipel.
And his lyrical abilities have not been dampened with the serious nature of the Astana doping story, rhyming ‘scandal’ with ‘sandal’ at one point in the song.
With the UCI Licensing Committee due to rule on Astana’s doping case in the next few days, we’ll obviously bring you any updates and further songs from Muax (and the Astana news, of course).
