I wish I could find more respect for him he has the talent to be a great on the mountains likes Pantani or Van Impe or Robert Miller I cannot see him as a GC winner though.
I think this will be a big year for Andy. Last year was a write off and he has lost Frank for next year.

It seems he has responded by training earlier and taking on, so far, some earlier races next year. I'm a big Andy fan, so I really hope he is taking it seriously next year. Unfortunately for him, Contador is back. But, it should still be an interesting showdown in July if they can both get to France in shape.

Well let's just wait and see. I won't believe it until I see it with my own eyes

...and he feels fear...

My question is, will Andy "do" all of these races or "race" these races? Andy Schleck losing 5 minutes on stages to sprinters doesn't mean squat.
