Vinokourov wins Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Alexandre Vinokourov wins, Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2010

With one huge acceleration 500 metres from the line, Kazakhstan's Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) notched up his second win in Liege-Bastogne-Liege in five years.

After dropping Russia's Alexandr Kolobnev (Katusha) in the final kilometre, Vinokourov's victory is the biggest since his ban for blood doping ended last July, and confirms that even at 36 years old, the Kazakh will be a force to be reckoned with in the Tour of Italy.
