Here's my previous post:

Yes. We have that bet going on as well. I would see them as two separate bets. Previously I bet AC would do the Giro and then the Tour. Here is the link to that conversation.

http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthr...=23059&page=14

This second bet is: I think AC will be competitive in the Tour. He will be on the podium. Wanna do an avatar bet on this as well? The loser of both bets would have an avatar of the winner's choosing till the next GT.

Let's work it out a bit.

The Giro bet stays as it is.
The second bet is about Contador at the Tour podium.

Here's what I say:
The second bet is on only if Contador finishes the Giro.
You were mentioning something about Contador finishing the Tour as a condition of the second bet.
In that case I have to add my condition to the bet - Nibali, Froome, Quintana, Rodriguez finishing the Tour. Only that way it's a fair bet.
How's that working for you?

Ok Yes, the Giro bet stays as it is.

I guess I'll go with what you are saying for the 2nd bet.
So to sum up the 2nd bet. I'm saying AC (after doing the Giro) will podium the Tour, with Nibali, Froome, Quintana, and Jrod all still in the Tour.

You are saying he won't be competitive with all of them finishing the Tour. Right?

He won't podium in the circumstances we've defined.

Looks like it's on me to encircle our long term bet...
Have to say I've expected the conversion by now.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. :)

Nothing will shake up, Froome will shake them all off!
The Tour champion doesn't come to a race to be beaten by the rivals he defeated a month ago or some young and coming hopefuls.
This will be the double of the season.

In your dreams :D he can't even stay at a consistent level for 3 weeks, there's no way he can do the double.

Wanna bet?


I'd do another avatar bet. :) :p
I too don't think he'll do the double.

We could make some arrangement, but I'm not sure you'll like it.


The only bet I'd do is simply that Froome won't win. I don't have a favorite for the overall win so...

In that case, length of avatar wearing won't be equal, since the odds (objectively) aren't fifty-fifty.

Agreed ,,,loser buys the winner a jersey of choice. " I wont go bonkers if I win and ask for a rapha "

If Froome has a crash and pulls out then obviously I won't ask you to pay up, He has to finish.


agreed?

You're trying to rip him off. :p

Even the top favourite rarely has above 50% odds of winning.
