Very likely Sky would have set the pace even if they had been there. The strongest team push the tempo even without having strongest climbers. As I see for you Froome and Wiggins are by far weaker climbers than Schleck and Contador.

I'am a lazy googler but I read somewhere that he had bought every copy of the film because he didnt want Andy to be percieved by the audience as a looser.
A man who was contempt by coming in second place or something like that.
Im sure someone will find it.

That's a joke...That website is the cycling equivalent of The Onion.

The same site also says that Scarponi will get a 3 minute ban for his involvement with Ferrari

Where is this Andy Schleck:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymhQzwGH-BA .After he left Bjarne Riis team the only performance I saw from him was a epic stage win at Galibier in 2011 TDF.I hope that next year Andy comes back at full force.

Oh please, let's get in to a debate about this I give you Contador, EVERYTIME he has come up against the two. I give you Andy AND THE SAME. Please tell me what I have missed. I'm missing your love for our Andy though

Looks like they've just woken him up

He blushed a little in front of Andersen

Another one fairy tale.
