Why?It is not impossible,it was his plan this year so why not?

Their point is that he said it, but didn't mean it.

Which of the two is a better option for him? Just curious
Lets see what the man himself says for a change:

el de Ponferrada se puede adaptar muy bien a mis caracterÝsticas

Done.

Meaning he will have equal chances in both. A slightier tougher course in Florence perhaps but it levels with the massive homesupport he will gain at home soil. If he should ever win a WC-gold then he would of course love it to be in 2014.

Thanks LaFlorecita, No_Balls, and everyone else who gave their input on what I asked re Contador and the 2013/14 WC

I guess time will tell which one he'll end up participating in and who ends up victorious in the end

(Just some musing about what I assume are the general views on Contador in Denmark. Which changed pretty drastically last year...)

At first I guess people didn't like him because he came and in a way "took" the Tour victory many felt belonged to Rasmussen. Guess some people still feel that way tbh...
Then of course for a couple of years he was the main rival to the next big "Danish" Tour-hope.
And everything changed when he became a Saxo-guy, now he is the main "Danish" Tour-hope himself...
Not to mention that fact that because he's on a Danish team we've sorta gotten to "know" him better.

As for actual Contador-news. I find it really awesome that he's started that junior team!
