He sees me write an article on my laptop and, being curious, sees that it is about cycling. He asks some friendly questions, is interested in journalism. He makes lucid remarks, showing a certain covinction at his 18 years of age. Maturity, not yet.

"Me, I go cycling for fun", he says, "I am a student. I won't make it my job, but I like it a lot. My older brother is a professional, as was my father. It's a tradition in our family...

He, that was Andy Schleck (...)


Also interesting:

(...) those bad "friends" who pretend to love him, who take advantage of him, live off of his money and will be the last to help him.

Wonder who that is?

Also re: Lux' Federation President's comment. That guy is, like the vast majority of presidents of sport federations, a politician and an opportunist, and has never sat on a bike outside of a photo opp. Bottom line he has no idea what he's talking about, he just repeats what he believes the consensus is. That doesn't mean it's not true, simply he should in no way be considered an authority on the matter
The problem with him is that he don't take the cycling exactly as a job, but more as a hobby or a passion. Anyway he used to work for the team out of his objetives and his work training is OK despite the words of the Luxemburg Fed President.

Camaiore is going to be very important for his future.

He must finish without problems to believe that he worked properly in winter time (he twitted that a day he made 160 km in December, and that is not to be on holidays, because is about 5 hours training)

But as well he was in Xmast in NY in a Coldplay concent, that is not something bad, but it shows he could have been more focused in training and that his words about to be training in winter because he had his holydays in summer are not exactly like that, and he take his caprices. Anyway maybe that kind of things are good for him, but if he start with bad perfomance, it is normal remeber that.

Which just go to show to show that it wasn't fair for you to be attacked.

Anyway I thought Andy was scheduled to ride T-A, but is that still the case? And what will his program be for the spring?

EDIT: Maybe Miburo should create a poll whether or not there will go a year

I wasn't attacking you, I was calling you out for having double standards, that's all.

Yes yes, That I knew, sorry. I meant for next races

And he is not riding Tirreno as well, so I imagine he is going to change his calendar, and it depends his feelings tomorrow the team will chose for him the more appropiate calendar, but if he feels ok tomorrow, I mean finish behind but without major problems, he has to ride a lot, and some important race before Ardennes, as Basque Country (near my home, hehe)
