The peloton can be an unforgiving place if you are all alone not having teams like USP or Sky around you. AC is one of those guys who probably could have spoken like this and still pull off the things he does. But that would look rather silly coming from him since he is more of the devil on the bike instead. But we had guys like these before: Gilbert, Ricco, Berzin, Hinault, Riis...

Everyone knows Contador does this so the comment had to be sarcastic.
Just for the record: i was sarcastic. I know you know but so, i have said it. ] Wooo that means he will be awesome
Slightly worried that he actually says his form is "good". To feel perfectly safe, i would have preferred his "unsure-of-form" comment pre Giro 2011 press conference. Perhaps the modern eras biggest smokescreen in cycling. But i guess it outweights of his "crappy first week" prediction.
