more structure, more intensity, more rest period, not overtrain, avoid fatigue, controlling his trainings and in fonction of july : losing weight, training on steep climbs (intervals)....

SDJ says AC still has the possibility to gain some % for July....
Oh my :D.. It's a music to my ears... and a nail scratching chalkboard sound to sky :D. One thing for sure, contador will give Froome a run for his money. Now we just need to wait if Nibali will show up.;)

I think he did not rode at 100%, so it's not really a good indication of his real tt qualities. But however, Froome will probarly get 1 / 1.30 minute in a TT of 40/50 k, so he has to work on it if he really wants to win the Tour.
dunno. maybe since he knows that his climbing superiority starts to come back, he might thinks another Fuente De or Lanciano attack will be enough cushion for ITT :D We all know that Froome watches his powers and making sure he got something left close to the top of the climb.

I'm just commenting from my experience as a total novice. But as I lost weight I gained flexibility. And my bike fit was definetly affected for the better.

Just my .02$

I've asked the Specialized aero expert once what's the exact difference, and why Alberto (and his team) keep using this different bike. I never got an answer, but I'm afraid he's just stuck with it.
They are all using the same bike (Shiv TT), but Alberto (and a few other riders) use the smallest frame size with is constructed a bit differently (the most visible difference is the raised top tube/stem section compared to a completely horizontal top tube at bigger sizes).

thanks for the article. I'm amazed how he stubborned he is. I guess if you have won a lot, why change if it's not broken? So getting his assre handed over by Froome, did finally open up his mind. Maybe he can open his mind with his ITT? Bring in Bobby Julich :D

Paulinho is looking better already. Good sign :)

Is the old man in the back taking a picture? :D
That's David Walsh. He follows Contador around taking notes so Dawg can copy AC's training. Froome hired him to do this after being scared ****less by Berto's T-A performance. :D

Got a good feeling about Catalunya. I think he will beat the alien.

Skytrain doesnt look very strong. Its just Porte+Dawg.

I see Alberto Contador, the drug cheat, is back winning races in Europe.

Except now he’s Alberto Contador Velasco. Sorry, but you’re still a drug cheat even when you change your name.
