@Jason Mercier: Why not? Because you don't like him or because you think he can't?

Bumping with content and speculation

content: celebration with spanish staff and team mates right after winning his gold

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...Fqn5e-0#t=366s

speculation:

he looked much better towards the end of tirreno, which good considering this is his first race of the season and how early he was dropped on prato di tivo.

what will race next? Catalunya, pais vasco, romandie and then the giro?

sounds like a solid program where he could give euskaltel plenty of world tour points to be honest.

Nice video. Those two exchanges with Contador were cool to see.

I really hope he's in form for the Giro. There's no one I'd rather see win it.

Great video.

As for Samu winning anything big in the future, forgetaboutit.

Hes 35 years old. Best years of career ruined by crashes and ASO.

I still have hope. After all, he's 6 years younger than Horner!

What do you mean by ASO ruining his career?

Only that? It's a bit of a stretch to say ASO ruined his career that day. Most likely he wouldn't have won the stage to Luz-Ardiden.

I think he can still contend in the big races though. I think he's got another 2 years in him.

First time I've seen that video and being a huge Samu fan I got a bit misty watching it. The great respect shown by Cancellara and Bettini was nice to see as was the congrats from Valverde and Contador. His Olympic wins was one of my all-time cycling viewing highlights.

Loved the announcer: "SAMU! SAMU! SAMU! SAMU!

Thanks to Parrulo for posting the link.
