Well with this tt we are resetting the circumstances. So.nibali.might beat The Great One like he did last year.


Isn't the TT shorter? Should suit Contador more, besides Contador completely blew himself up on alpe d'huez. He would have won easy if he waited a bit longer

I know, I was just pointing out that not even mentioning him doesn't make any sense.

Actually, I heard Alberto mention that he was approaching the race with such a different, more enthusiastic feeling than last year ( we all understand why ). To hear him speak that way gives the feeling he intent to showcase the team and of course we can count on some display of his talent. Even if in the end he is not there to win the whole race. Although, he is just a little heavier than I have seen him, Alberto does look prepared to race and that should put all his competitors on notice because none of them will know for sure when he will strike, but strike he will.

I can't imagine him letting his rival elite climbers disappear up an ascent while he just sits in. I don't think its within his nature to allow it to happen.
