Weird. I can hardly tell that’s him. I’m not talking about his weight. The way his face looks from the side...


His face has also increased in volume.


It almost looks like Nacer Bouhanni. :D

It definitely isn't. Look at other pictures of the training camp.

It's only now when seeing fat Contador that I fully realise I won't see him in races anymore. A pre-season without him bragging about his best numbers ever feels kinda weird.

I'm shocked... his upper body looks very good (skinny) but his legs are so big. :lol:

For me it's the different kit. In the past weeks he trained in sponsorless kit and even his old Trek outfit. But seeing him in the Polartec kit shows he has moved on and taken the next step in life :)

A video here

He looks good. Show the wee boys how it's done! Also, how lucky are they to be able to train with the Great One. :)

I wasn't sure about the kit at first as the blue fade is kinda weird but it looks good in motion, it looks fresh

I don't think he looks fat. He looks healthy, unlike most pro riders.

what makes me sad is that I don't see any rider capable of doing what Contador does on the road. I had high hopes on bernal but he ruined everything when he signed for sky.

No he still looks good of course! I think it's great that he's still out there with the youngsters....I think he'll stay thin (not pro thin) for quite some time.

I feel the same way. I don't want to be photographed that way cause my references aren't the greatest.

Yeah, it must be great for those young guns. I imagine Valverde will do something similar when (if) he retires someday for his team.
He has a powermeter on his bike tho...... best numbers while not racing professionally? :D

He looks great with the beard and a few extra kilos! :)

He should be leaving on a Latin American Tour soon. Colombia for the Oro y Paz race, Mexico for some event and then Panama for the Ocean GF.
