Contador will be out of top-3 in the Tour and I truly don't know whether he will decide to start the Vuelta after that. Pailheres-Ax-3 stage will become a revelation for many people.

I appreciate a role of extra lives in anything very highly.

Contador will win in a landslide. Andy's insistence that he was in the form of his life at the 2011 Tour and could never gain a decided advantage until it was far too late leading to the final ITT leads me to think that with a hungry Contador back he'd be better served going for the Giro/Vuelta double. At least in that way he'll finally have at least one actual major stage race win on his palmares. Additionally I just can't see him coming back at his best by July after the abysmal 2012 he had, with the minimal race days and especially the severity of his injury.

After such a long absence from a bike no one can come back strong. Not without some clinic related material. So don't try and lecture us about blindness please.

After all, Contador has always performed better than Andy. Why would next year be any different?

This isn't a poll about what you'd like to happen, but what you think will happen. There's a difference. ;)

But apparently not a lot of people on CN realize that...

Omg, a lecture from you is by far more entertaining. For what are polls created if the only thing you can base on is previous experience?

Apparently, 80% of forum members are on there in order to 'bath' in what they would like to see.

Actually I base my statement on 2 different things in the post you just quoted. Can you find them?

Of course not because there was no any thing. Just a notation how people don't realize anything and nothing more.

I think you will need to stock up on the tissue and Andy highlight footage for you to make it through "The Continued Fall of Andy Schleck 2.0" that 2013 will be. Either that or you can continue your bandwagon jumping and make the move to a real winner like Contador, that way you will at least have an argument and rider that you actually win with and for.:)

What argument one should have to think Contador will not win the Tour? Or there persons are crazy by default?

You trying to get serious all of a sudden? Did I offend you in some way? I thought this was all in jest?

Anything is possible, including Contador losing the Tour although that wasn't the topic of our conversation, at least that's what I thought. I thought we were talking about who would have the better season between Contador and Andy Schleck.

I don't know what bandwagon means. Apparently I should support someone only according to Angliru's and Miburo's algorithm

I'm just kidding with you about your seemingly neverending shifting allegiances. When I use "bandwagon" that's all that it means. I'm just teasing you but I'll stop if it bothers you.

Whomever wins the tour will have the better season. That's likely the only real objective of both this year. It's the prestigious 100 edition and both, especially contador, know that they must defeat sky in order to demonstrate dominance. As airstream has stated many times Froome is really an unknown quantity whom they both fear

As much as I would love to see a new Tour contender amongst existing ones, I don't think Froome is the guy (yet).
He probably has the required physical ability, but races like a dilettante.
I don't think Schleck and Contador are too afraid of him, if at all.
Their only concern should be their own form.

Froome got second last year while working for Wiggins and losing time on one of the earlier stages. He can win the Tour as strange as it may sound for a rider that no one heard of in 2011.

Contador was a bit too worried with Froome during the Vuelta. But he'll be more confident for next year.
