Winter strength training
He imagines each block of wood is one of his rivals, then brings the ax down as hard as he can, if the ax gets stuck in the wood he has gotten 2nd again; the wood has won. He's clearly not standing for any more 2nd places.

I think Andy will be back to his best by 2014 and he will go well this year (improving on his 20 cq points).

I like that he has a few hilly races to help him prep for the Ardennes- a good start for him would be at the TDU just even attacking on Wilunga as no way could he out sprint Gilbert or Gerrans.

What that photo don't tell is how many trials it took before he first get the log once, than how many more blows he had to inflict till that log was finally split. Talent is a biological gift, application of it is his obligation and so often, in the past, he missed the spot. I wish Andy a good year in 2013 but he better be prepared to suffer for there is an angry wind coming from across the Pyrenees mountains and it is a hot wind bent on settling scores.

I was under the impression that he was basically the Schlecks' b!tch and "in charge" in name only. But yeah... that seems to work best for Andy Schleck. Now if only Frank would be banned... then Andy would be a real threat to Contador, IMO. But only then.

I fully expect Frank will get to ride the Tour, though.
