Vaughters/Tinkov Twitter spat has a happy ending

Oleg Tinkov and Jonathan Vaughters get into a spat on Twitter, but it results in some good news for the American team.

Oleg Tinkov is igniting tempers on Twitter (again), but today’s spat between the Tinkoff team owner and Cannondale team owner Jonathan Vaughters has a silver lining. In addition to showing off a lovely bottle of Montrachet (valued at about $4,000, we reckon), Tinkov teased a reassuring detail out of Vaughters. The American team is set with its title sponsor until 2020. Twitter trolling finally pays off, it seems.
