Really??? Do you really think it's fair to categorize all Contador fans as such?

Airstream isn't the best person to respond to any questions regarding Contador and discussing his mindset. I presume his lack of motivation may have to do with his experience with doping saga. Imagine if he actually did try it and finish on the podium on all 3. The doping talk would be incessant. I suspect the experience has clipped his wings/ambitions a bit. Maybe once he gets his GT totals back up (I suspect he wants a Giro and Tour to replace the ones officially stripped) and things have calmed down he'll have more interest. That's my uneducated guess.

I'm just kidding. I really like Miburo's stance actually, so to speak, 'I see through rose-colored glasses and don't disturb me'

Yes I know he is not,but I dont mind discuss with him.And I think your thoughts are reasonable,I agree that triple would be very bad for doping related talks

For you, his fans, this is the case. However, my opinion is far less radical than your overly optimistic one.

I don't say to win 2 GT in a row is impossible. It is a matter of super rider who has to have an overwhelming edge both at climbing and TT. Such a rider should win the 1st out 2 GTs with a lot in the tank for the second one and a rider like that doesn't exist today. Nowadays no one is able to win a GT on a pure class. Everyone needs good and very good shape. 3, fans can exemplarily continue to remember about the 2010 Tour when he was allegedly in bad form. I agree possibly that form wasn't perfect, but it was very very good. If one does not understand that, perhaps one does not understand the main thing — how hellishly tight and brutal contention is.

As to 3 GT's, I think Contador said about that just for fun.

OK. What should he have felt if talks started? Grievance towards people who dare doubt in his cleanliless?
