It was an opinion? I'm sorry, I thought he was stating it as a fact.

You can say some bad things about Contador, no question about it.

But saying he's lazy? That's just ridiculous. Proving he's not lazy would mean that there might be some doubt about it.

Besides i'm too lazy to typ

It is a manner a forum member is communicating in. One is entitled to have its own. You for instance can be easily accused of absence of your own opinion, but it almost always duplicates Contador's offical version. However, no one is bringing you up for that!

He is a work in progress but unlike most of those previous champions, he has never won the world's or won a classic and I disagree about the grand tours. He hasn't reached that level yet even though he is the best of his generation. He won't reach the level of Merckx or Hinault but may pass the grand tour careers of the others even though he lacks the versatility to win one day classics as well. His sprint lets him down but in certain hilly classics with the right tactics he could be hard to beat if he bothered attempting them.
