And Btw do you not realise the ironic nature of your post?
i like his mentor intonations.

Whats the difference.. a man with a lesser fan experience can easily see deeper sometimes.

Ahead of some guy called Rodriguez who gave Contador a hell of a fight in the Vuelta.

The "weak field" argument that comes up on this forum incessantly is seriously tiresome. Some people need to twig that the list of top GC men is changing all the time and not every GT has a weak field FFS.

Armstrong: 1999-2005. Indurain: 1990-1995. LeMond: 1984-1990 Hinault: 1978- 1985.
Contador 2007- 2017 (ten years) dominating GT's? Not serious. Two years more as much.

5 GTs, 3 or more years.
Read more carefully.

" Who do you think will dominate GT's after Contador? Let's say 5 more years Contador and then what? "

The original title is: "Who is next to dominate GT's?", so I've expressed my opinion.
On the other hand, on your question I'll answer: Let's wait and see in couple of years who'll appear.

Clear enough?
