Contador doesnt strike me as the type to go into a race unless he thinks hes in good enough shape to really challenge for the win. Look at how after the Tour he often just ends his season. No worlds attempts or shots at an Italian classic or anything.

He either goes all in, or he gets the **** out.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

I dont think he can do it.

Too many question marks over his current level.

2013: is for the tour.

2014: I'd like to see him ride the Vuelta and finally contribute some points to the team for the licence renewal.

2015: Play away.
