Contador busted for EPO
 
Just kidding. Man he has got to be on something.

Interesting.

He was amazing in today's paris-nice stage.

Oh I almost forgot...IBTL!

I'm so old I had to look this up:

IBTL = What posters on a message boards will sometimes say in response to a thread/topic that will eventually be locked/closed. This is a way to show that the thread is incredibly dumb or goes against the rules of the message board. Used to sometimes get in a free post to raise one's post count before the topic gets locked, preventing any further posting in it.

I thought he got hurt?

Yeah he was the strongest today hands down, but i think Jens could use more help. I've never seen a Saxo Bank rider other than Jens! Strange that he's not getting any help at all.

AC had a crash on Monday but has obviously recovered.

Yup, on his bike, training hard.

Just watched the fourth stage into Mende. Hes looking good for the Tour, watching him go up that last climb, not even in top race shape. Frank Schleck has been a little disappointing. Jens Voigt still performing at (38), rider of the race so far, inspirational integrity.

There is no doubt he owns the uphill road.... The other pros must feel completely helpless on those climbs

He's great and he's fun to watch. He obviously doesn't care for a calculated approach to racing, this year he is set free.

God, I hate that guy.

USAZorro 03-14-10 04:11 PM

God? or Contador? I don't hate either of them, personally.

Contador, of course. God? Eh, I'm sure he's cool and all...

My opinions:

Catch-22: He needs a stronger team, but his primo uomo ways are going to catch up with him if he doesn't start depending on his team more often.

He isolated himself during P-N. He likely will not get away with that in the grand tours. That's his " c h i n k-in-the-armor"--one that Armstrong can take advantage of.

I don't think Contador did anything wrong, is the team; that's not strong enough to stay with the leaders (Valverde 2nd, and Luis Leon Sanchez 3rd). From what I saw; he was already isolated on the last climb, (the best defense is a good offense I guess)

about Lance Armstrong; I think it would be very hard for him to win another tour. he seems more committed to the fight against cancer(which is a good thing) than training or racing more towards a tour win" (he finished 9th on a charity ride just recently)
