Contador Vs. Schleck Specialized ad

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This sort of reminds me of that old Juan Pablo Montoya / Kimi Raikkonen McLaren commercial.

Awesome ad.
I'm liking Contador more and more by the day, but I'm still rooting for Schleck.

It's amazing that they were able to get the two top riders in the Tour. The Col de la Madeleine climb was the best advertising Specialized could expect. Phil Liggett going on about how great they look mano-mano on their Specialized machines. The only thing missing was Liggett's classic line..they are now on the steepest part of the climb and now its getting steeper!!!!!!!!!!)

Contador has the weirdest little voice. It's almost alarming.

This is one of my favorite ads, love it. Specialized has done good. They don't play it on versus very much though, but maybe they will play it more once the Tour gets into the Pyrenees.

Why would you want to see a commercial more than once or twice?

When it's better than the crappy other ads we are forced to watch millions of times a years, it would be nice to see a decent one mixed in there sometimes.
