    Garmin Drops Wiggins for Contador

    Seriously - if Wiggins is still on Garmin through next year - why the hell would they court Contador, especially with Wiggins focusing on the TDF.

    They have 2 very strong Top 10 contenders in Wiggins and VdV, and a star sprinter in Farrar, as well TT talents in Wiggins and Millar. Good team.

    If he improves his climbing, he can have a good shot at a podium spot ...

    Yes, but there is a considerable distance between that and a proven winner of all 3 GTs.

    Oh no, I don't mean AC. More like #2 or #3 - he was pretty close to LA.
