I do think it would be cool to see him do the giro though. That way he can do the Vuelta as well and I can have 2 months of GTs to enjoy.


I know and I agree but we can't say "Alberto is the only rider together with Badger that won every GT two times" because it isn't true.

I think it would be cool

And if he wins Tdf this year which I doubt, he should try to win 3 of each, 9 GT wins and only rider to win every GT 3 times wouldn't be that bad but it's also sad to think how much better it could've been.

I was just thinking, for me it would be a perfect end to a beautiful career if Alberto becomes superdom for Majka in 2 or 3 years. Really for me that would be the most beautiful thing ever. My favorite rider and his successor.:):)

really? AC working for a half good polish guy? No, he will come back to the team that gave him his biggest wins and work for Nibali

Now that would be the worst possible scenario for me. I'd rather see him go to a new team set up by JB with LA as DS.

Majka will continue to progress and will become the new Alberto. I know it. I just feel it.

Really, you wouldn't like to see a Vino as DS commanding AC and Nibbles to attack Quintana, Pinot and Froome up the very last mountainsage of the 2015 tdf in a desperate atempt to stop the 3 year Froome dominance? An attack that would be remembered to be more lethal than both WWs combined :cool:

No because I think Nibali is overrated. I wouldn't like to see Alberto slave for an overrated rider. Majka can still progress a lot so could become a complete beast just like Alberto was 2 yaers ago. Again not saying Nibali isn't a good cyclist, just that he's overrated.

And of course Alberto doesn't really like Nibali and Nibali doesn't really like Alberto so Alberto would never work for Nibali.

Btw nice joke about WWI and WWII. I laughed really hard.

No offence, but Majka is also overrated (by you).
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

We cannot decide on that just yet. We have to wait a few more years.

Alberto working for a teammate in order to help him win Paris-Nice? Sure why not.

Alberto working for someone he doesn't like in order to help him reach podium in TDF. Why the hell would he do that?

Majka is a one-dimensional rider. The complete opposite of Nibali.

EDIT: Not that it makes him bad, it's just who he is. Like Anton/Pinot/Rujano etc.

Where do you get the notion that Contador doesn't like Nibali?

IMO Alberto as domestique for anyone is unthinkable. He should retire as a winner and become a DS, training under Vino :)

Well judging by Nibali's comments I don't think they're best friends

what if he never wins something again? He should retire already?
