contador in lampre?!

I'm already seeing the portuguese rage against sergio paulinho every time he would help contador instead of costa.
Paulinho gets usually dropped before tv coverage starts so it's irrelavant.

Hope Faustino and De Jongh stay with him wherever he goes.

I personally hope to see him go back with Trek. It'd be a perfect team to build something for 2 - 3 years, plus they need a leader.

I'd be surprised if he went from "I'm retiring after 2016" to "I'll stick around for another 2-3 years." Of course I wouldn't mind seeing this as long as he could keep a decently high level of form.

He said he doesn't have any date to retire, he'll keep riding as long as he enjoys it. He completely changed what he used to say

For Contadors case im not worried about Froome nearly as much as a evolving Quintana, pretty sure Quintana will be his biggest challenger in the Tour! Froome has never been able to drop a peak Contador and wont this year either and will loose quite some time in the last week as usually while Quintana on the other hand is better and stronger this year, how much better he is remains to be seen but it will definitely be interesting come July this year!

My sentiments exactly...
 
I don't necessarily think that Quintana having a better spring means that he'll be stronger in the Tour this year. He's been more consistent mostly. Last year he was better in Tirreno than he was all spring this year.

I'm not worried. Froome and Quintana look very beatable and Alberto looks splendid. Bring on the Dauphiné and Tour :)
Forget Dauphine already. If I'm right it's Bertie's next race? It will be a pre Tour training race to get him back up to racing speed. Expect Sky to dominate this. The really scary thing is where is wee Nairo whilst the big boys toy with each other here and Suisse...

yes, I'm a bit more optimistic
I'm also optimistic. Alberto has looked very good this year but I'm also a realist and I expect both Froome and Quintana to be ready to race. No one else will be involved I'm sure for the top of the podium.

For now I feel fine but as we get closer I'm sure the butterfiles will find my belly. All I ask for is no problems, no setbacks, leading up to July, and then hopefully a wonderful winning display by Alberto. :)

I don't see this happening. Although it would be a dream scenario for Lampre, I think Alberto is smarter than that. If he feels like he want to win his last grand tours next year, he should look for a more complete team. Hopefully Stefano Feltrin will find some sponsors, and he can continue there..
Not that I would be excited by Lampre, but what makes you so sure that Tinkoff team is a better one? It's a very complete team, yes, but in a different way: a complete ***.

Alberto riding a Merida.....in that god awful kit..... :eek:
I find it ugly too. And Merida bike...please not. I still think Trek, Etixx or even Cannondale would be better.

But Lampre is also good, because of LaFlo :p
