Oh well, so many teams rumored, Etixx, Lampre, whatever. Let Contador go to Efapel, I'd like to see him winning Volta a Portugal, where the field's level may be higher than in the Tour :D
He needs to win the 100th Giro next year.
If (and when:p) he wins the tour this year you do not think he will go for it again? I think the Tour Veulta is open for Contador to do

If he wins the Tour (which already is done and dusted), he should obviously turn up in 2017 again like a real man and defend his throne.
He is not british :rolleyes:


@Flo
Astana better than Ettix? :eek:
...I would take any another team against this bunch of lunetics (poor Nibs)

? I posted he would be better off in Etixx or Astana than Trek
I know,and I was surprised as Astana staff is full of idiots,the pressure is big from kazakhs etc
I think that Trek is a good choice,mediocre domestics but better managment

Yes, Trek and Etixx are the best options. Astana would be indeed a disaster.
 
I think once he finally has rectified any doubt over him having won 3 Tours (Everyone knows he has 3 Tours anyway, but the Rasmussen 07 Tour is probably more debated than the 2010 if one is not using double standards), I think he'll try the Giro-Vuelta for 2017.

Because of this stage i'm still convinced that the contador of 2014 was at 2009 level. I've never seen him that good in the dauphine.

Can't wait anymore. :)

I have a really good feeling that Contador will crush the opposition in Dauphine and TDF.

Dauphine seems hard and it will probably give us very good indication how Contador is feeling. If he wins then it will make waiting tour even harder (the anxiety).
I think that my heart rate might be even higher than some of the riders out there when Contador starts Dauhpine on 5th. :D

Probably thanks to that silly strip stuck on his nose. :rolleyes:

Seriously now, you'd expect cyclists not to fall for quackery like nasal strips or kinesio tape. It's as useful as wearing a crucifix or a cosmic energy pyramid. :rolleyes:

It looks good. Even if only for aesthetics, I respect that!

That strip looks beast and he likes wearing it. So what's the issue?
He's broadcasting to the entire world that he'll buy any kind of snake oil if you tell him it improves performance.

Exactly, and the NetApp guy looks just as stupid.

We all laugh at The Chicken for going to extreme lengths to save weight, but then we say nothing when other riders stick a chunk of sell-o-tape on their noses?
