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.

Anybody can focus, winning is a whole different thing.

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