I became a Contador fan after his epic meltdown in Paris Nice (in 2009 IIrc). I often find riders more likeable with they not only win big but also lose big. Og and then regarding Contador he never rides for 2nd. He rather risk it all (which we saw in the Vuelta last year).
In that regard I also think I am growing into being a Schleck fan. After his huge downfall I hope that both he and Frank will comeback to the top. Yesterday gave me hope of that.
