Alberto may already be thinking about 2016, with his chances this year all but gone. He still has the Giro win, so it isn't a total loss, though far from what he really wanted. Is 2016 the swan song?

I say he tries the double again in his farewell year. One year older, one year wiser, he knows what he should have done or not done. Any champion or great entrepreneur know there are are no failures, just lessons in what you should not do next time when you go for the bulls-eye..
I agree.
Giro - Vuelta is doable.

Any double as long as it isn't boring as *** like this Tour.

nothing going right on this TDF for Contador. In fact, on all his TDF participation since he is back. It seems, he always has a set back. Dunno, maybe he is trying too hard, or it's not just his year again. O well, start thinking about next year. Last year, last TDF attempt. And finish in Vuelta to say goodbye.

It amazes me how many people on here seem almost giddy that he crashed, pretty pathetic
Giddy? Who?

Just reading comments on this thread and the race thread. I don't like calling out people, but for example someone said "Lance Armstrong, "Contador still has a lot to learn""

I see that as him mocking Contador.

Lance is right: he should will learn from him, his methods and surely Berto would have won this tour :rolleyes:

The definitive end. What a ---- !!!
Tour really isn't his race

It was over in stage 10. You guys just couldn't cope with it so were in denial.

Nice try on the attack today though
Sure, but we hoped a suicide attack like Alpe 2011. Now, it's impossible and a no sense : he has a 0% for the victory,. He can go now for the ( f-----g) podium :(

Sucks balls that Movistar killed the race by chasing down his attack with 74km to go and then he got really unlucky on the descent. Would love to see him just animate the race just for fun now :) Attack from kiliometre zero pleaasseeee.
