    I want to see that, Spaniards don't like to come to the US and I don't see how they will make him come anyways. This I would love to see.

    That race overlaps with the Vuelta. I think Contador will only race if he loses the Tour, otherwise he will go for the triple.

    Agreed, if he's allowed to race at all. I'm not sure if I'd rather see him do the triple or see him ride literally past my house.

    Alberto Contador is not coming to America.

    Not yet anyway.

    First, the Vuelta starts on the 20th August and if Alberto is eligible to ride in both races there is no way he is going to miss the Vuelta for the sake of riding in the U.S.

    Second, the official website of the US Pro Cycling Challenge makes no mention of Contador riding only that the team of AC will participate.

    Lux, well u are in europe but seriously, due for foreign policies and because in the news over there they love to show american people killing to each every single day spaniards dont like the US, in a matter of fact is better for an american to put a canadian flag in his back pack while there. Have several friends there and they refuse to come even tho is cheaper to vacation here now than in europe, so u go figure Just small town people (respectfully.) So i really dont see this guy coming to the US any day soon, well "ever".

    Yeah - and America isn't being hostile to Lybians (Obama's "depends on what your definition of is is") but given that all Americans loathe Africans. Right?

    Point being ... oh sorry I gave up "the obvious" as my New Year's Resolution and I'm still in the game ...

    All Spaniards don't dislike the US. Contador is ONE GUY - not a country. Jeez. For a country that is so politically correct on the LEFT and so NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT on the RIGHT - how can anyone make such a block headed - big city people - type comment of shear stupidity?

    They Are Coming to America

    Far
    We've been travelling far
    Without a home
    But not without a star

    Free
    Only want to be free
    We huddle close
    Hang on to a dream

    On the boats and on the planes
    They're coming to America
    Never looking back again
    They're coming to America

    Home, don't it seem so far away
    Oh, we're travelling light today
    In the eye of the storm
    In the eye of the storm

    Home, to a new and a shiny place
    Make our bed, and we'll say our grace
    Freedom's light burning warm
    Freedom's light burning warm

    Everywhere around the world
    They're coming to America
    Every time that flag's unfurled
    They're coming to America

    Got a dream to take them there
    They're coming to America
    Got a dream they've come to share
    They're coming to America

    They're coming to America
    They're coming to America
    They're coming to America
    They're coming to America
    Today, today, today, today, today

    My country 'tis of thee
    (Today)
    Sweet land of liberty
    (today)
    Of thee I sing
    (today)
    Of thee I sing

    Yo no creo que todos los Espanoles odian a los Estados Unidos, solo alguno de ellos.

    I don't think all Spaniards hate the US, just some of them.

    For whatever it is worth, America is still THE place to come to.
