    Alberto Contador vs Lance in his prime.

    Is Contador now better than Lance ever was?

    Alberto proved yesterday that he does not have the tactical smarts that Lance has.
    Maybe he can learn, but I doubt it. He is too impetuous. And he does not learn from his mistakes...

    Does he even need the smarts? He seems like raw talent/ability.

    He might need it when he loses the raw power.

    In all seriousness though, and op troll aside, Contador is an amazing athlete, but he still has a long way to go. And don't forget that Contador has the luxury of being Lance's teammate this year. If they are on different teams next year, we might see a different story unfold.

    I think he learned a big lesson yesterday, and to his credit he seemed to realize it almost immediately and regret it. I think he's finally turning the corner and could become a good leader.


    Just so long as he stays the hell away from Vinokourov.
