That, and if there was a video of the interview. You could tell from his facial features, I guess, if he was being sincere or secretly poking fun.

His first classic in 3 years and he almost wins it. Anyway classics is always somehow a gamble while winning a GT or a stage race is pretty much gonna happen with Contador.
LOL, there is zero gamble at FV. Absence of gambling, elementaty tactic plot, pure power. One can or can not.

Who cares? The 'only' reason covers up many others.

It is completely his problem. Anyway you are free to complain to him personally about that.

Happy new year, guys. I wish everyone that my prediction not to come true and Froome will not win the Tour. Andy should win this race.

Do you remember how different Evans raced it in '08 compared to '10?

Of course. And what? Saving energy for the last ramp is a key to success? No. It can be won differently. But the plot is primitive. And to say that Contador lost because of lesser experience is laughable. He lost because he was weaker and he is generally weaker than Evans in this excercise.
