he's kinda right with the statement but anyway just ignore him, he's baiting people. Respond and he wins. He'll always give these kinda quotes in the hope someone gives the obvious reply and then...

I agree. He indeed was right with his statement on the first part. The second part about being thrown away from alpe d'huez top alive, that most likely (for sure) will be andy :D

Well isn't that the truth...when people quote his blatant baiting I'm exposed to it even with Ignore on :(

"Talansky also watched as Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff) could do little to rattle Froome and Team Sky. Although Contador said he was suffering from allergies and later rode to support teammate’s Michael Rogers’ failed bid for the podium, Contador seemed a step off Froome’s form.

“[Contador] rode a smart race. He knows he cannot beat Froome in a straight up drag race. He cannot just ride harder and harder and drop those guys. He has to attack. That’s what he tried to do at the Dauphiné,” Talansky said. “I would say that Contador is Froome’s most dangerous rival. We saw him in last year’s Vuelta. He can make intelligent tactical decisions on the fly that can win an entire race. Physically, Froome has nothing to worry about from Contador.”"


Well I doubt he 'watched' unless it was on TV highlights later LOL! Hope Berto makes him suffer and eat those words :)

It's actually not about the truth of his statement, it's about the "man". I don't want to respond to any of his comments, I just hate to read his trollposts here.

Oh my Goodness. Some fans trolled other riders' fan for years (they didn't think what the rest riders' fans feel about that etal), savored how Contador would smash everyone, bragged how everyone has no chance, but now they whine when someone reminds em about reality. Pathetic. Your attitude just reaches you. No offense.

Contador fans writes in the Contador thread, not so much in the Andy one, and so far I haven´t seen much trolling in the Andy thread, actually the opposite, most people gives him their support, and hopes for his return.

So my question is, how come you write 50 times more post in the Contador thread than you do in your idol ditto?

Wait...no need to answer that, the answer is so obvious.

Comment from semi-lurker: There does seem to be quite a few people trolling these boards, and who are generally given much too long a leash by the mods.

Though I don't use the ignore feature I have quite a few people whom I just scroll past; the google-translating guy full of hot air(stream) is definitely one of them...

What? Oh yes, to say that Contador of the 12 Vuelta version would be destroyed in the Tour is so offensive...:o

Just an observation, AC has more race days than Froome and in the past when AC has won the TDF he as always had wins be it P.N etc and it did not make him tyred in the TDF. So what makes people think Contador is banking it all on last week, I just don't get how Contador would not have won a WT stage or stage race. Do people really think Contador has not been going all out in these races?:D Anyway I cant wait now just 88 days to go I predict fireworks.
