Impressed by Moscow

He spoke long about his childhood and teen years (his first bike, his first steps at Pinto cycling team), about 2007 and 2008 GT victories and last vuelta too and about doping in cycling.


He talked too about the comment of retiring at 33 and he told aside the life of a cyclist is hard it's very likely he stays at least 5 more years and after that he'll go year by year.


Saxo Tinkoff 2013 it's the best team he has ever been and as a leader he is very content with the pool of riders he can use next season. The atmosphere is pretty good and that means better results.

Froome is the greatest threat next july, followed by Andy if has a nice start of the season.

I do understand the interviewer but Alberto talks way too quick

Thanks Forunculo for the video

I really liked the interview and I was amazed when Contador said he has 38 bikes at home - each one having a special meaning like the ones he won a race with, etc...

Hi Flo.

Now you can buy a Saxo-Tinkoff t-shirt with Alberto's name:

Shop: http://teamsaxobanktinkoffbank.com/s...t_id=5&lang=uk

It's Saxo-Tinkoff's new 'casual wear' t-shirts
