It's a typical Contador 's habit to such thing , it's no guarantee , but of course it may be true , it's still possible to find some good form in spite of what he has shown so far this year. Even Evans seems to be doing great again.

But yeah it does sounds good to hear Contador say that. Let's hope it'll become more than words.

Climbing like '07, TTing like '09 and with the panache of '11.
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

That's the result of having Abandony as 'rival' instead of Chicken :cool:

BTW Panache '12 might be better than '11...

Hard to say. Plateau de Beile at Pantani level 1 minute faster than Armstrong.

Or record VAM on a climb that is not even conducive to VAM.

Of course 2012 wont be anything like that. If it was, and they raced the alpe stage properly, 38 mins would be broken.

New to cycling? :rolleyes:

It's the absolute reverse. Contador normally always downplays his chances. Him saying he'll be really good is quite exceptional.

trains...

13 May 2013 11:01

Noted that Rogers has moved to Saxo whilst watching To Cali last night, also Roche should be a pretty good domestique.

Of course Sky proved that having a good train is key to win especially the TdF.

With SBW, Uran and Henao, Knees (Are they even in TdF ?) most likely going to be somewhat tired from the Giro and with Saxo seemingly sending quite a weak team combined with their new signings for the TdF - Well will the Saxo train be as strong if not stronger than the Sky Train come TdF ?

First of all Bertie has to be in top shape. For a rider like Contador, any teams train could be a good start ramp to attack. He's not a diesel like Wiggins who has to be paced up the mountain with high constant tempo. His own team will matter when it should come to defending the lead.
