That's irrelevant, we're talking about possible contenders to win Oman, not about achieving last place

Maybe not all will agree but I like it when you post pictures of Alberto - it gives some life to this thread

He was considering doing it, and stopped cosidering it when learned about Wiggo's decision.
You're worse than Flo.

No he wasn't considering doing it. That was hot air based on a mistranslation. Contador himself always said it was unlikely he'd do the giro.

Back to the drawing board

Link, please.
While you're searching, here's a reminder: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cont...id-at-san-luis

He was, obviously, considering the double.

By the way, what are your sources? Those who claimed he'll do the Flanders?

Froome is way different, the dude is equal maybe even better at the ITT.

And at the mountains, well we don't know how good he's there exactly.

But unlike with AS Contador isn't sure that he has some margin against Froome considering ITT and that's a real issue. If he has a lead of 30 seconds, it's still unclear with Froome.
Froome doesn't have the assassin's capacity of Contador, at least as far as I can tell. He still has much to proove.

Its up to you to provide the links if your theory is that Contador was "considering the double".

id like to see the original comments in Spanish, not vague translations of 1 sentence by an organization that gets more wrong than right, which is all your first link offers.

the second link offers nothing. its from last year before the season was even over moreover its from the Giro presentation, where to show courtesy he refused to rule out doing the giro ( it was a month before he even met with his team to discuss what his 2013 season goals would be).

Ive seen and listened to several Contador interviews in recent months and in all of them he makes clear that the tour is the priority and that the team has other riders that can do the giro and the vuelta.

1 can be found at the bottom of this page

http://www.tuttobiciweb.it/index.php...cod=55700&tp=n

Another one can be seen here http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/c...5-169/1643845/

so was Contador considering to do the giro. Youve shown absolutely nothing to suggest that he ever did.

back to the drawing board
