During the coming seasons, JRod will probably want to focus on the Vuelta or Giro anyway so Andy can be leader for the Tour once he has his act together.
What makes you think this? He doesn't seem to have benefitted from the experience of working/riding with Riis, Cancellara, O'Grady, Sastre etc...

Hang on in there C. In my opinion a better option to go Spain for some warm weather training. Keep the faith

I would've been more optimistic if he has ridden Tour du Haut Var, despite the Leopard's PR spin.
He's well behind, I'd say. Even if he didn't have the season like he did, this would have been problematic start. There's more than just sports matters, I'm sure.
I'm starting to think he's lost for this season too.

Andy is lulling other riders into a false sense of superiority. In July he will remove his nappy and come out to play !

I don't care how talented he is, if he can't even finish one race without abandoning, I don't know how he can compete with the likes of contador, froome, evans, purito etc? Oman was already a fire works and it's not even July yet. I hope he can find some motivation somewhere, get a grip (I really do. It would be fun to see him mixed up with contador and froome).. otherwise his name this year will reduce to another footnote.

right now it doesn't look good. All the evidence indicates that Andy this winter simply didn't work and train enough.
