Really interested to see how he does in the Vuelta. He has such an attacking style, I think he would have animated the heck out of the mountain stages in this Tour, and I would assume he's gotten his...

But I guess if I'm going to tease, I should throw out some predictions too.

Causes of lower heart rate?

The last couple of months, my heart rate (while riding) has been strange. What's normal for me is about 165-168 sustainable on long climbs, with a max around 173 (which I can only hold for 20-30...

Good god, this thread is nasty. Now I know why so often on group rides there's a stinky That Guy. Apparently there are a lot more That Guys out there than I ever imagined. *shudder*

From what I've read, Andy just isn't as regimented in his training as others (AC, Cadel, etc.). Example: only one ITT this Tour, and Andy knows this is a big weakness for him. Does he recon it ahead?...

Finally Andy shuts up and really attacks. About time, great ride from him. But he certainly benefitted from no one chasing until he was almost 4 1/2 minutes up.

When Cadel finally got up front,...

Two years ago NONE of the contenders made the split except LA. So that incident doesn't reflect on Contador's tactical sense any more than that of the other contenders.
