No, his English will never improve because he will never try to learn it, as he is afraid of being asked about clinic stuff by native english speaking journalist.

That photo of Contador is heavily photoshopped.

Yes. They were going for an effect (boosted contrast and shadows)

Mick Rogers:
"Alberto is a rider who runs off a lot of emotion - he uses a lot of emotion in the race. Whereas Chris is very calculated and Bradley was very calculated last year. They know their limits," he said.

In other words my kind of rider, one who competes with emotion, passion and panache!!!! Limits are made to be exceeded and if you never try to stretch them you never will :)

Vincezo Nibali joins Anquetil, Gimondi, Merckx, Hinault and Contador as only the 6th winner of all 3 Grand Tours! Bravo Lo Squalo!

this is not a good start for contador. First day crashed... Corsica should be banned from being the tour route. what kind of finish is that? 100 people in narrow road. All sprinters wiped out. Hesjedal crashed too. I know it's the tour, but is this the entertainment??

After seeing the crash it could have been way worse. He doesn't look that hurt but i don't expect him to do **** on stage 3 now ;)

It's all over for Contador yet, not even close. He shouldn't lose any time, only worry is if he is injured (lets wait and see on that).

i rewatched the crash, i found Contador. He didn't crash hard. He crashed on some riders but it didn't seem bad at all. It's hard to say of course but at first sight it didn't look that bad.

Ill never forget how Robert Gesink looked ok after his crash in 2011 and even was saying he felt really good a couple days later. It turned out however the crash ruined his TDF and his season.
