WHAT?!

Contador beats Nibali and Hesjedal in a desert sprint
If Contador now starts winning sprints nothing will be left for the other riders

What I meant was if someone is allowed to go up the road and go for a stage it may be roche as I see him as being third in line in the team with contador going for the win (and getting it) while Roman will be somewhere around top 10/15. Rogers addition is a huge boost and could be pivitol to success.

Maybe so, but I read it was a 1km TT. I'd have no difficulty believing Bertie could win that without a fix.

But I'm sure it was all an 'event'

Vincezo Nibali makes history and joins Anquetil, Gimondi, Merckx, Hinault and Contador as only the 6th winner of all Three Grand Tours! Bravo Lo Squalo!

Obviously we can rate Contador as better against the clock than those two in 1 km or 70 kms but I refer to the sprint, probably they three are awful in that area.


And it was a marketing event for and another oil fueled event in an arab country, so some kind of script it's always behind, and being Contador the biggest name of them it's the natural outcome.


If Induarian was there with Zülle and Rominger and you are promoting a race in a country with no tradition what would be your election?

You're correct, it was a 3 up not a TT as reported on VN. Pic up on the Giro FB site

Yes I see what you mean...
Oh, and I think Iīm free to read anything I like or donīt like and actually comment on my observations, and to be honest what his wifes favourite band is donīt have much to do with what this forum is about, anything cycling related, but you obviously post in this thread like its your personally alberto fan girl thread, and Iīm giving my opinion, sorry you canīt handle that.
Maybe you should make a fan website for alberto and add a chat forum, there you can discuss all his wifes favourite bands, flowers, colors and what ever you like, this is actually a cycling forum.

I agree completely, I am very surprised the mods don't.
