Would be first time since 2004 that Contador hasn't registered a single win all season

Way out in the lead. Pity about all the huge breaks otherwise he'd have two or three more.

I don't think him not winning anything tells us that much. He's been better in the GTs this year than last year, and yet last year he won 5? races.

Alberto Contador will win this bike race.
Wij steunen hem, tenzij hij niet genoeg fietst.

Possibly since we started following it year-by-year in the forum, but Rojas had 35 back in 2010.

Contador is gonna sprint Sunday just so he can get a top-10. :cool:

I'm assuming he's gonna get a top-10 in the three other remaining stages as well, + the overall.

He sure let it wait for a long time, but Angliru is a pretty good place to get your first win of the season.
And the last win of your career.

Anyone else with a shot of catching him?

Really glad this wasn't Bertie's last win.

By my calculations, Kruijswijk will be up to 17 so if he races again (maybe the Italian semi-classics, but he doesn't have a big history of doing so), then possibly him, and Vermeltfoort is always a reasonable shout to accumulate top 10s in random Flemish and French 1.1s.

I don't know enough about van Lerberghe to comment on him, but he looks like yet another Topsport Vlaanderen prolific top-10-getter. They had Kenny Dehaes, then Boeckmans, then van Asbroeck, then Jelle Wallays, who was later joined by Theuns and then Naesen.
