Nico Roche interview

He will help Alberto win the Tour

http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/13...s-forward.aspx

Quote:
VN: Obviously Alberto Contador is the biggest name on the team. Have you spoken to him much?

NR: Yes…the other day we spent the whole day together. There were four of us – myself, Contador, Kreuziger and Chris Sorensen. The four of us were together from eight in the morning until seven that night. We had a good day and were really able to talk.

I was quite surprised because when we race, Contador is not one of those guys who says much. I always said he was very discrete, saying thank you when you let him by and everything, but otherwise being pretty quiet. But in the car he was really, really talkative. He was talking about race situations, and other things. The four of us had a nice chat.

Then yesterday Roman, myself and him went to the children’s hospital in Las Palmas to visit the kids who are being treated for cancer. That was a tough moment – I haven’t been in one of those hospitals since my little brother Florian was ill.

It was nice, though, in that the families really appreciated it. Myself and Roman have very poor Spanish – we are working on it and we were able to communicate with the families and with the kids who weren’t shy enough to talk, but Alberto spoke for five to ten minutes with each of the kids. They were all over the moon.
That sounds like my Berto

In an interview with French tv Alberto said that he won't participate in the Tour if Saxo only get the green light two months before the start (I think that is about the wild cards)
