Hang on ... what are you wittering about mate, 2010??

The tour that Spartacus made sure was riden to suit Andy, nulling stages where necessary going on the attack when road conditions allowed on a year where Contador wasn't at his best?? Andy had every option to win that race on the road HE failed. On the line in Paris, 1 second is all the difference it needs, not minutes, not hours.

Yes I'm a Contador fan and if Andy could grow a pair and use his talent, I'd be a fan of his as well. I'm all for riders who make our sport the exciting spectacle it is, if Andy can do something that gets him to that category I'll give the plaudits he deserves.....until then!!

He couldn't put even a minute in such a spoiled brat. That's the measure of Contador - "whinney wee" Schleck - with an extreme talent.
Now there you got it right

Until then watch 2011 Tour. It's the edition when Cancellara held the peloton on Izoard.
You can add excuse for Contador's result that year. But it will be just "whinney wee" excuse.

Boldy bit - Nah I'd declare him a whiner anytime. It's really simple, if he'd man up, grow a pair, whatever and use a fraction of that incredible god given talent he has, I'd have nothing but respect for him; until then everytime he complains about something I'll label him a whiner.
No one but him really knows if he is still upset about it or not, I suppose it is a matter of opinion and how one interprets his words. My opinion, he has gotten over it. Of course even if he wasn't over it, I couldn't really blame him for not being over it. After all if it hadn't been for that incident he could have won the Tour.

Except there is one problem with that, he wasn't complaining about it. Any mention at all of the incident and Contador fans automatically assume he is complaining about it, when in reality he is not.

What whinney wee excuse will this be - the "he had just won the hardest Giro in years but still managed to take a fair result" excuse, he tried the double he failed, rather than just turn up to race in July...

PS Spartacus was already back in the Grupetto by the Izoard, he'd been setting tempo on the Run to the Col D'Angel, Montfort was in the break Andy chasing on his own Frank with the group of Evans, Contador etc

He seems guarded when he talks about it, his body language suggests its still a stress point for him. As you say individual opinions are what matter.

I wish I could find more respect for him he has the talent to be a great on the mountains likes Pantani or Van Impe or Robert Miller I cannot see him as a GC winner though.

It's still an excuse for unsuccessful atempt of double.

....and sarcasm obviously isn't yours.....If you are going to post trash like that expect to have it slammed..

It's no excuse, he tried, he failed.......key part when talking about Mr July Schleck is this "HE WOULDN'T TRY!!!"

You can now make excuses for unsuccessful understanding of my post by spinning it, but it won't help. It didn't take much to determine your ceiling.
