Well, he's definitely nice to his puppies and all that, but I fear he might be spoiling them. I mean, look at Noval.

I would say friend rather than master. On the road he does his job for Contador but the second they get off their bikes there is no seniority. They do everything together. Its all in the latest ciclismo al fondo

At the end of the day, the Schlecks lost the tour because they were too coward to attack in the Pyrinees. If they had had the courage then, they would be on the two top steps now.

And he should race (not ride) any ASO races with important preview stages.
Yep. Mtn bike and ski. And get lasik if necessary. Thor gave some props to his skiing background as a source of his DH prowess. Represent. Cadel was fairly average skills-wise for a mtn biker as I recall, but as you can see it translates to exceptional on the tarmack.

Three former pro XC mtn bikers in the top 10 this year. Tommy D. Peraud. and EVANS. F yeah!

Getting my vision fixed to near perfection was a huge boost for my DHing. I really can't emphasize that enough.

I think the Schlecks needs to sacrifice Frank for Andy to win. They cant have it both. Question is if they will...?

I still hope he learned something this year and will get a real win one day!! In the end, personally, I still kinda like the guy and would be happy for him I dunno how he would handle another second place in the future. I'm not sure if he's got enough self-irony
