No way, Alberto can be skinny but he's never anorexic.

If one brags by winning out-of-shape Contador, one should admit that a rider of comparable level can do the same, no?

The thing is that Contador has shown many times he can do it early in the season, with some riders for whatever reason it takes more time to get in shape.

Froome hasn't proved that yet, i've no doubt it's possible but Contador is a more certain factor.

Denying that would be retarded, even by your standards airstream

Yeh, with your scale of riders' off-form, many people on here are retarded.
