I think Froome is also doing TA. It will be interesting to see what TA course is like though. Hopefully it will be like last year though, - Contador for 3 stages

Did I click the wrong thread? Thought this was the Contador thread and not the Schleck thread

Sorry about that. I for one would like to see Alberto, Wiggo, and Andy all on form and battling it out in TA; a preview of things to come. Toss the defending champ Nibali in there and maybe Evans and we could have a great race on our hands

One in which I fully expect Alberto will want to make a statement to all!!!

ACīs epic attack in the Vuelta stage 17, literally blew the whole thing apart, lot of suffering. Looks to me its Rod who tries to follow but have to let go.
