People say here Contador did a different progran this year. That is not true. I am spanish and I have read all his statements this years in the spanish newspapers and cycling webs, and he was in Tirreno to win, and he attack in Tirreno to win.
He couldnt do it, as he did others years, puting even haf a minute over the second in the climb.
His ITT was clearly worse than he used to.
Contador was peaking the same or more than Froome did. Froome failed, but he was the strongest in the mountain stage.
If is true he got the flu after that I dont know. But again in Dauphiné he was weaker than in other years. He just was strong in an explosive climb in a short stage, his best parcours.
His race is as other years with Andy, but I think Andy could put some good time on him in the stage of Le Grand Bornard.
But if they wants this thread as a Contador fans thread, maybe would be good dont writte here, and ask some people the same in other threads.
I am not going to write here a lot here for that reason.
Please, do that. Cause you're full of **** as well. You're making **** up and hide it behind the "I'm Spanish" veil.

Naturally. The original plan was to win all possible races, but when it came to light that he couldn't beat Sky, Contador and Riis had to make up a new version or really switch to it - everything for the Tour.
Even before San Luis he said everything was about the tour so he wouldn't be worried if he didn't win a lot in the preparation races. Sucks for you.
