Maybe this is it. Andy will descend into mediocrity and struggle to top 20 in GTs.

(no pun intended there)

Just amazing that they would blame Contador for attacking when AC is feeling strong and happens to be riding in conditions that don't suit "The Schlecks".

How bloody unsportsmanlike! Will AC come out & sook that Cadel shouldn't have dropped him on the descent? Or,seeing AC actually knows how to win a Tour or two,will he just try & get on with it?

I respected Pandy before this race,but not now.Pathetic.

What is this thread about?

Schlecks are so awesome, some people like them (as I like them ), some not, end of story! We don't need 10 threads about 20 pages for that!

Vladimer Karpets has had a bigger effect on the GC this Tour than Andy so far.

Andy was right. The tour is abotut getting the best riders from other teams paying them there own weight in delicious luxembugerish cheese, and getting them to hold you upright on you tricycle until you hit the foot of a climb. Then seing who can win a tt to the top, you or your brother. Its certainly not about going DOWN hills!
