No, Bjarne has CAS, Roche, Kreuziger as the potential leader for the ardennes and a very nice group of helpers

Very solicitous relationship towards them from Contador.

Nice.

If you wonder how steep the climb is, just look at the tourists.

Get ready for 3 stages + GC, san luis

Oman and Tirreno 2012 were bad in terms of climbing, although his accelleration still got him the stage in Offida.

Btw if Contador is in the form all his fans are promising with the Vuelta in his legs, he should (again) easily beat Purito everywhere he wants.
