Andy folds AKs preflop if an early hand, too much hassle.

That's not AKs ;) (at least not how I see it)

There appears to be an Anna Kournikova folded to Andy's right, it must have been folded pre flo, like Fermi pointed out, as there appear to be 1 or 2 kings on the flop.

Yeah I saw that (Duh), but it's not AKs ;)

There's a similar clock with an even bigger number on the radioshack team bus.

It reads, days since Andy last won at poker.

Too dangerous and technical to play AKs.

AKs =/= AK

AKs = Ace and King suited.

From what I can see on the picture, it's two different suits, ergo not suited.

Looking at the team presentation pics you can say a lot about Andy, but not that he doesn't watch his diet. 0.o Abs showing through the jersey in january?

I'm pretty sure Andy is very serious this year, the most serious ever, i believe. He's not dumb, nor is he blind. He knows what people and TREK are expecting from him this year. He is in a different situation on the new team compared to Leopard times and his influence has reduced. Obviously TREK is in charge now and they will not allow anyone to take things easy. Also the shedule of Andy will change to some extend at the request of TREK.

He does look very happy in that video and cracking jokes almost like old times. Makes me hopeful as well.

He shared a funny story from his first team camp as a neo pro with Saxo Bank in Denmark. Apparently they had a party in a pool and the neo pros had to take 25 shots in 5 minutes, that was their baptize. "... and now they wear bunny suits". Oh the good old days.... :D

Schleck said younger brother Andy, who’s been dogged with injury since 2012, is also on the comeback trail.

“I just chatted with him [Sunday] morning. He did a 210km ride, had some tests, and he was very proud,” he said. “I could hear his voice shaking, ‘Fränk, I think it’s going to work. I might be proud.’ I am very proud of him.”

This looks good! 2014 TDF winner Andy Schleck :D

Sounds nice! Theoretically there is nothing standing in his way to reach his form pre-2012. Now we just need to see where that puts him today

Very nice to hear, really hope he can find some success this season. Sounds like he has his confidence back as well, that is very good.

Ya maybe a top ten for Andy at the TdF at best. No way he comes back all the way, the psychological damage is done, he'll never be entirely fresh. Peaked early and is now past his peak, bet on it.

Plus he couldn't TT at his best, so might as well forget it nowadays with the likes of the dawge.
