Better than last though. I think he will continue as long as he can, to collect as much money as possible.
He has had a great salary over the last 10 years. If he doesn't have enough money to live richish after this, I don't know of any cyclist that can :eek:

He's crazy, he only has to wait another 3 years then he'll hit his peak and drop everyone like sacks of ****. Just ask Chris Horner.

The most elegant rider I ever saw. He was one with the bike in whatever condition. I also liked Ullrich's style but have to admit that his body was all over the road in the last 2 km of Pla D'Adet in 2005 when he was dragged by Sevilla. Never was the case with Klody. Even on Colombier in 2009 he was riding like a gentleman. Not a single feeling on his face. I would have yelled at Contador like there was no tomorrow. Not him. Professional like no other. Tignes too!
Have a nice life Klody! You are one of a kind!

I actually yelled at Contador on the TV :D That was just one of the most stupid things Velasco ever did on a bike. Anyway, it's not like Kloden would ever win anything on Grand Bornand!

Sad to see the quiet man retire. He was a great Patriach but I didn't realise how much until I saw it at the sign in of the Cagnes Sur Mer stage of this year's Tour. Totally holding state at a table beside the stage with him doing the talking to riders from other teams. My interpretation was, OK guys, this is how it is going to be today:)

Klodi's got some nerve...I'll always remember what Ulle told Pevenage (per Pevenage) after a trip to the Canaries in early 2007 to see Klodi and Kessler : "Nothing's changed...".

who should we klodists follow now?
Kreuziger is my replacement, capable of a podium given the right field, but will slave away faithfully for his leader.

Armstrong on Klodi's TTT skills @ Shack:

He's like a motorbike. I've never seen anything like that. He's the strongest I've ever seen at that event.
-From a Wilcockson story in some Velonews or other.

Keep posting random stuff to keep this thread up here.
HAHAHA!!! Love this!

We need to get this thread of epicness into four figures....

Anyone up for discussing old Klodi races? How about the '08 Giro? A sad race for mine. Could have podiumed, but maybe peaked slightly too early for Romandie, and then got sick. Having to abandon on the penultimate stage... :(
