Hes a more obvious troll than airstream. Hes been pushing this - 2011 Contador = Contador at his peak line since forever.

Remember the 2011 Vuelta where he was every day talking about how Contador had no chance of winning

Ignore it, dont feed it.

The key word there was 'since'. Look it up.

well since the 2011 tour contador has done exactly 1 GT which he won, so that keeps it at 100% GT wins since is return which his very similar to his GT record before the 2011 TdF. so i don't see the decrease in performance you are talking about.

see i can also spin a story to further my argument.

now i know what you are trying to do and what you are hinting so just drop it or take it to the clinic

You're the only one here, that I've read, who thinks like that. It's been countless discussions about the 'Contador is not 100%' and so on. I have my reasons to think what I think, a lot has to do with common sense and it's not necessary related to the clinic.

The biggest troll on here is you with your archaic extravagant Darwin theories that are called to explain the state of things U like.

If its true that his level is decreasing(I dont believe) still I dont worry.IMO his power is in his recovery,desire and will to win big races and thats why I think he is Tour favourite no.1.If his level is worse than for example 2011 he still has something little extra in his head and body,and thats why he will beat Froome and whoever in 100Tour
