    Did Karpets push Contador?

    I've seen the video, read the stories. I think AC got flicked.

    Did you read the one where Contador and everybody else involved said it was just an accident?

    Did the aliens from Area 51 kill JFK?

    Everyone close to the situation says no. To conclude from the video that I saw that Karpets delibrately crashed Contador is a stretch. I vote no.

    He told Cycling news that he did, AC said the same thing. Both seem to think nothing of it so maybe AC bumped him first and got wacked in response.

    The one suspicious thing to me is that Karpets seemed to have changed his story a little bit. I'm not sure if that was just bad translation or questionable reporting, though.

    I said the name, so now I am a hater. Nice. Guess I hate Marcia too.

    Maybe Alberto is late on his payment to the Russkaya Mafiya for the last clenbuterol shipment?

    Apparently Contador didn't understand the half life when he took his blood for storage a bit too soon Relax, it is more of a joke about the Russians.
