Thought this was a good read

I may have posted it before, don't really remember

Contador’s Fuente Dé attack: History repeating itself



In 2002, the second of Contador’s two years in the amateur peloton, during the prestigious Circuito Montañes stage race, he staged an attack at exactly the same spot, 3 kilometres from the summit of the second category climb where he attacked in the Vuelta this year.

“It was a very similar stage to the one in the Vuelta this year,” Contador’s director in his amateur years, Juan Gonzalez, told MARCA, “but perhaps even harder.”

Contador went away alone, was caught by Javier Ramirez Abeja, now racing with the Andalucia team, and by another rider shortly after the town of Potes at the foot of the Fuente Dé climb.

“I told him to attack again on a ramp called Los Llanos, and Alberto went away again, but was caught 500 metres from the line.”

“Wednesday’s stage was a carbon copy of that stage, with the difference that this time round it worked.”
And this

Quote:
Gonzalez recalls Contador as being “unpredictable, he would attack anywhere and everywhere and you didn’t need to push him to make a move. And you couldn’t stop him either because once he’d attacked it was better to leave him in peace!”

“He was the best climber of his generation “Gonzalez recalled “but despite his weight he was able to finish a close second in time trials like the Graniitier Breton prologue and the hillclimb in the Circuito Montañes” as well as winning the amateur Spanish time trials.

Yeah.
Poor ol' Berto is freezing, while Andy is chilling in sweet Mallorca sun.
Some labor all their life, and some enjoy.
Dukes and serfs.
