I think you will need to stock up on the tissue and Andy highlight footage for you to make it through "The Continued Fall of Andy Schleck 2.0" that 2013 will be. Either that or you can continue your bandwagon jumping and make the move to a real winner like Contador, that way you will at least have an argument and rider that you actually win with and for.

What argument one should have to think Contador will not win the Tour? Or there persons are crazy by default?

You trying to get serious all of a sudden? Did I offend you in some way? I thought this was all in jest?

Anything is possible, including Contador losing the Tour although that wasn't the topic of our conversation, at least that's what I thought. I thought we were talking about who would have the better season between Contador and Andy Schleck.

I don't know what bandwagon means. Apparently I should support someone only according to Angliru's and Miburo's algorithm

I'm just kidding with you about your seemingly neverending shifting allegiances. When I use "bandwagon" that's all that it means. I'm just teasing you but I'll stop if it bothers you.

Whomever wins the tour will have the better season. That's likely the only real objective of both this year. It's the prestigious 100 edition and both, especially contador, know that they must defeat sky in order to demonstrate dominance. As airstream has stated many times Froome is really an unknown quantity whom they both fear

As much as I would love to see a new Tour contender amongst existing ones, I don't think Froome is the guy (yet).
He probably has the required physical ability, but races like a dilettante.
I don't think Schleck and Contador are too afraid of him, if at all.
Their only concern should be their own form.

Froome got second last year while working for Wiggins and losing time on one of the earlier stages. He can win the Tour as strange as it may sound for a rider that no one heard of in 2011.

Contador was a bit too worried with Froome during the Vuelta. But he'll be more confident for next year.
