I like competition, so that's why I like what I'm seeing. And I like Contador by the way.

He is a noble creature that knows to attack. Now Vino is learing him how to attack in an awesome way. Be afraid all you AC fanboys/girls

Age and declining form hit all of them; it is a fact of life. From the Vuelta we know he will use race savvy, experience and outright Audacity to get the job done when the legs aren't at the best. IMO he's got quite a few GT wins left in those legs; but time will tell all.

Same common sense that told you Nibali was going to win the Tour de France, and that Contador had no chance at the Vuelta?

uh, ill pass.

I would like to see Froome, Andy and Alberto all at top form battle it out myself It would be amazing to watch. Would like Nibs to be there also but fear he would be outclassed
