So, LaFlorecita, we expect many many happy years accompanied by numerous Andy's wins at the Tour.
Watch out airstream don't be mean or Alberto sends his dog(s) at you.



It won't be pretty.

Lol @ Contador, overcompensating much? I guess if you're not the big dog then you have to buy one. This is what real cyclists dogs look like

Given he was World MTB Champion first, he moved to the road a bit later than most which may have had something to do with it.

Lol a Jack russell. What was he thinking.

Also Alberto didn't buy the dog he got it as a gift. Just like his first dog.
