I'm wondering if there's any chance Contador will be nominated for the Laureus Comeback of the year award.

Well... it's a well known fact that you're a little crazy!

Considering next year's Tour, Millar offers an intriguing insight. "I don't think anyone can beat Contador. He's just so good. But Chris Froome is the only guy Contador is scared of. I've spoken to Contador about it and that's good because he's never been scared of anyone. He watched Chris climb at the Tour and you saw how hard Contador raced from the start at the Vuelta [Tour of Spain]. He was racing to get rid of Chris because he was scared of him. That's going to make it a great race.

He's btw completely right. Contador was for example never scared of AS.

Froome is different, and if Contador would have lost the vuelta it would because of Froome. He was paying too much attention on Froome.

In all honesty if Contador is 100% it's all futile, no one can do anything.

And all who disagree don't know **** of cycling, at least that's what i think. But ok we haven't seen Froome going really all out so i'll give Froome a chance.

Rest should pull out a Wiggins, and ride the giro

1) Contador paid a BIT of attention to Froome in the Vuelta and crushed him uphill andput him in his place in the ITT;

2) Agreed, 100% Contador, game over;

3) The only rider out there on form that scares Contador is Andy Schleck. Anyone who gives Froome a chance with an in form Contador and Schleck, is basing this on what??
