Smile He's coming home!!!! Alejandro Valverde comeback thread.

2011 was a great season.

But there was something missing.

January 1st, it comes back

The most eagerly anticipated return in cycling history.

Alejandro "Piti" "El Imbatido" "El Bala" "Balaverde" Valverde.

Coming to the races you love this January.

I don't know about him being a serious challenger for overall in a GT like the Tour. He could contend for the overall in say the Giro or Vuelta. BUT, one thing's for certain IMO, he will be animated and cause problems for contenders on some stages in the biggest GTs. Plus make the race more interesting.

I think if this forum goes on long enough and both me and you stay on it long enough you will eventually have called me a fanboy of every rider to have ever ridden a bike.

Nah he wont win the Tour, nor will he go to the Giro (not too friendly with them Italians)

But Valverde is the devil on wheels therefore I am allowed to be nasty towards his fans!
