Contador will suffer an early loss in the Tour and try to make it up on Ax-3-Domaines, but he'll be eaten by the group of favorites and spat 3 minutes back. By the Alpe d' Huez he'll be fighting for top 10, and on Semnoz he'll fall back to 17. Already during the race, which will be won by Schleck, Contador starts to drink out of depression. Riis sacks him, due to indiscipline, so he's not even able to defend his Vuelta title. This chain of events results with overweight Contador thinking about retirement. But salvation comes from his archenemy - Schleck. The Tour victory secured a wealthy long term contract to RSNT, so they decided to strengthen their squad. After another one disappointing spring campaign for Cancellara, during which Devolder did it again in De Ronde (finishing with a cigar in his mouth and demi in his hand) and Boonen coming to velodrom in Roubaix riding backwards, they (RSNT) decide to hire this new, overweight, Contador as Cancellara's superdomestique for cobbles. Contador, out of gratitude, names his kid "Andy".
That's in brief.

P.S.
Froome will finally win Vuelta if anyone cares.
Are the use of hallucinogens legal in your country?

I don't say it will happen. Contador chances are always very high, but.. it is just of out interest.
Myself I'll figure in your usual fit of Contador-hating-hysteria, somehow took it upon yourself to infiltrate Contador's inner circle and dose him with some evil concoction that saps his strength and ruins his season.

You forget that he lost the 2011 Tour and there weren't any reports of mass suicides or long periods of silent depression nor extended absences from the forum following that Tour.

If he wont crash or something like that I think most of us (Alberto's fans) will simply admit that he didnt have it.As for me,Im a big fan but I am not idiot( i hope)

Hating in my words? Rather I never cease to amaze how one likes to disparage others. Someone easily reasoned about triples, ezzy giro-tour doubles, but when one guy came and gave the opposite scenario for the next year Tour [both situations have approximately the same overly low probability], he was instantly informed about his alleged drugs. Is it normal?

I wasn't on the forum back then yet, but it is not diffcult to imagine what came out on here. Some posters remind Alpe-d'Huez act of bravery almost every day. I guess, at one time all the threads sank in appropriate posts.

So saying you wish a rider would "burn in hell" can't be interpreted as hate?
