Yes it was:rolleyes:

Or do you think there was any chance that Andy would beat Alberto in an ITT:rolleyes:

You know air, just course you dont like the guy, doesnt change the dynamic of the sport try stay objective, otherwise you continue to embarrass your self.


As far as I can understand objectivity is ability to look into the things in a many-sided complex way. Iow, we should look into account all one's perfomances rather than best of them. If we base on one's 1-2-3 best racing days like equilibrium, we collide with million of dogmas like 'Rider A could finish better than rider B only 'cuz rider B was much weaker than in his prime' which derails any robust discussion.

Ok I just checked the address posted earlier in this thread and apparently it's a hotel:confused:so either this is just temporarily or the address is wrong because surely he has enough money to buy a house.

Maybe he's writing it off as a business expense.

One thing I do admire about Contador is he look's after his doms, J.Hernandez probably would not be WT without Contador would he?, what happened with D.Navaro I always though he was his main dom, did they have a break down in relathionship or something.

Dani thinks he's able to ride for his own chance so he moved to cofidis.

And a team leader taking care of his main dom is not something new in cycling.

In my view such a relative financial carelessness plays an evil joke with Hernandez racing qualities. In the past he was stronger.
