right now it doesn't look good. All the evidence indicates that Andy this winter simply didn't work and train enough.
Surprise factor: 0

Ofc Andy is too lazy to ever be competitive again. Might as well just quit

He'll never do that. He can still make a lot of money.

I still hope he gets his best level again. Froome vs Contador vs Andy should be awesome.

Besides he's only 27 or 28. He still has a lot of good years left.

at which age do cyclists usually reach their peak for performance? Is it 28-32?

depends really. Sprinters can reach their peak very early. CLassics riders and gt riders can reach their peak in their 30's. Different from rider to rider ofc.

Andy himself has mentioned that age.
Although it might be true, I don't think it's proper mindset.
It's like delaying an obligation. You get relieved of tension, but in fact just losing the time.

Boonen once said he would retire at 30 or something like that (when he was around 25).
It's just things you say when you're very young and later on change, obviously, opinion.

If this is a remark to my post, then I have to notice that Andy has said this couple of months ago. Not when he was very young.
So, it's not a matter of immaturity or arrogance, it's way of coping with pressure.

Number one for Schleck is to get on the bike and get some kms in the legs. The rest is secondary.
