1, I'm not trying to pin you.
2, I was sarcastically trying to point out that you didn't give any reason for Andy's win being "immeasurably more beautiful".
3, I think that there are a lot of similarities between the two raids. One could argue Contador risked more as Andy had his brother still in the main group and that Contador had tried on every previous MTF to drop his main opponent and the fact that one month ago he was still serving a quite controversial ban. On the other hand, you could argue that Schleck made his attack on a more heroic parcours against better competition in a more important race. A difference was that Andy was being accused of racing to passive and not taking every opportunity he got, whereas people might have been wishfully thinking Contador would try such a thing, considering aggressive racing style. As stage win I think they're equally great. The big difference however, is the fact that Contador won the Vuelta with his attack while Schlecks attacked ultimately proved out to be not enough.
4, I think every fan roots for results. It's part of the excitement. There are gonna be 198 riders starting on Corsica this year. Do you want to tell me that how the racing unfolds and who does well doesn't effect the pleasure watching the race for you at all? If so, why are you trying so hard to mock Contador
