his brother Andy is nice, but it depends a lot of the moment... and if you are a girl, much better.
LOL, we had the exact same experience with the Schlecks. I remember one time years ago, I was hanging out with VdV and Zabriskie while they were warming up before a time trial (BTW, Vande Velde might be the nicest guy in the peloton, regardless of what he did or didn't do with Postal). They were all still riding for CSC, and the leader of the team for the race was Bobby Julich, who commanded respectable attention as the only American to have podiumed at the Tour besides Lance and Greg (at that time). I remember being impressed by the amount of interest Julich was stirring since Armstrong and the Discovery Channel team were also riding in this particular race. The Discovery bus was blocked off and you had people 20 deep trying to just touch the Miracle Man. Phonak was there as well, and Floyd had set out a lawn chair in front of his bus, and sat there shooting the bull with anyone. Leipheimer was also extremely friendly, and had set up his warmup station in the crowd, and you could walk right up to him, though he wouldn't sign autographs while he prepared.
As I was hanging out with the CSC American riders, the young Schleck brothers took their place on the warmup bikes next to the bus. At that time, there were whispers about the younger brother, Andy; about how incredibly talented he was and how he could be a future Tour winner, but they were relatively unknown by that stage (Frank would go on to win the stage to Alpe d'huez in the next year).
The Schleck brothers would smile or nod, but then a group of high school cheerleaders appeared, and the sparkle in Andy's eyes was truly priceless. His face lit up and he turned on the charm like no other.
Perico was my idol and he likes Contador, that is a point for me...
Mine as well, obviously. That's what I find about Contador that cause me to cheer for him, regardless of whether my preferred favorites are riding. He reminds me a lot of Delgado in that they are the two most explosive climbers of their generation, in terms of 'lethal' acceleration, and both are/were more than capable enough to hold their own against the clock.
