Good in 2005, better in 2006, winner in 2007 (with massively improved ITT performances). If he would have continued like that, a Sastre wouldn´t have had any chance against him in 2008.
2009 and 2010, it would´ve been Contador vs Rasmussen, not Contador against Schleck.
2011 was a lame Tour, Evans was able to win. Evans was worlds behind Rasmussen in 2007, 2011 could have been the last year of Rasmussens Tour leadership, 2012 he would certainly have been on the way down, like Menchov was in 2012.
Rasmussen only started to find his best package in 2007, he would´ve had yellow years ahead of him.
Send an email to the Rabo board of directors, they'll cry even more
