Another Contador - Schleck showdown, but Valverde will not be far behind.

If the Vuelta is anything to go by, Contador will be going all out to eliminate Froome as early as possible. Andy better be in tip top form if he wants to survive this.

I think he will go big on AX3. I also think Andy, if fit will also. I do believe the fear (unknown factor of Froome) has gone from Bertie but nevertheless I can see him targeting him early. If Andy does the same then tough time for Sky.
