Going for stage wins...maybe best to take off the pressure
However if he can get through the first 10 days without losing much time ...who knows could be there in the end

Imagine Froome will attack early like on on stage 6 , etc

Great to see 3 best GC riders at the moment in the one race

Best team without a doubt is Movistar

Didn´t expect that. But with Contador you never know. Tells a thing and does completely the opposite.

If he´s in good condition, he has to be considered as the favourite.
 
Vamos Berto! great news to see him participating in the Vuelta. I don't really care either way if he wants to go for GC or for stages, both are fine by me. I think he will be very motivated and should give some great spectacle in the race!

The knee bandage is all a trick, he's ready lol

Anyway give credit to the guy on twitter who said AC was training, he clearly wans't lying.

I don't believe he's gonna go just for a stage win, if he had that form he wouldn't ride the vuelta.
 
Legend. What a ****ing legend. And whats up with the whining that he'll might lose? Sure, thats always a possibility but he is there for the fight and wont shy :cool:

Just when you thought the man couldnt be bigger. The pistolero from Pinto is back :cool:
 
I have always said here Contador will be at La Vuelta and with a good condition.
I am happy to be right becouse is important for the race.

He has now the excuse if he cant be on the podium, it s what he was looking for, but he has been training one month before the Vuelta and he is more fresh than people as Valverde, that is for me the reality

Well, it is confirmed that he will be there. His condition on the other hand ... we will see about that one. I doubt, he can go for more than a stage in the last week. But I would be happy, if I'm wrong. :eek:

There were too many clues that suggested good for the ride. and now that he will only run to win and and evidently feels himself to be in good shape to do it. Come ob Berto , we are all with you :)
