If history is any guide, Contador. I've seen nothing to tell me that Schleck could have a better season this or any other year.

Andy Schleck wins TDU, Strade Bianche and Ardennes triple. Then he goes on to win California, Dauphiné and TdF.
Contador will obviously be good as well in the early season, but he'll be blown away in the Tour.

Andy's been out for a large part of the season.

I really doubt he'll win much. He'll have a season like Breschel and Boonen after their injury filled years.

People who vote Andy are just show offs. In case of the very small chance he does indeed do better they'll bring this thread up to show how smart they are. In case Andy doesn't ride better(much bigger chance of happening) they'll forget all about this thread's existence.

Based on history: '07,'08,'09,'10,'11, (doing '12 is not far for andy) it'll be Contador

And knowing AS didn't ride much this year it's very unlikely he'll get back into his rythm. AS can deny common sense though (no clinic intended).

He's a great talent after all, but Contador aswell.

He's prob enraged about the things that happened to his bro and knowing his season was a fail. But his rage is nothing compared to what Contador must be feeling.

So pretty easy. Contador

There will not be a single stage race, where Andy finishes in front of Alberto in 2013.

Avatar bet anyone?

So if there is ANY stage race in 2013 where Andy finishes in front of Alberto in the GC (and both finishes the race) I will have to wear an avatar of your choice.

IF that doesn't happen, then I can choose an avatar for you to wear of my choice.

ok?

I suggest that the avatar period is the whole of next off season (after the Chinese races and until Down Under)

ok?
