The history books show that Schleck and Scarponi got awarded a Tour and a Giro victory. Neither one of them has won a Grand Tour eventually.
Remember the time that Schleck and Scarponi won GTs, said no one ever.

I hope that when La Florecita writes the definitive history of Contador's magnificent career, she includes my above quote.

Sky train (which originated Astana train).
This, the 2012-2-15 Sky train would have brought Andy back on the Galibier on even before. At worst if the Sky train was Evans team they would have got him within a minute on the climb and Evans would have caught him on his own and passed him.

I am happy to call all three GT winners imo. All three deserved at least one I guess

What someone deserves doesn't matter. Purito deserves a GT win too.

Schleck the Younger's elegance and panache on the bike really is missed. The Wait for the next Tour Champion who can win LBL with a memorable solo attack continues.

 
This pic of Schleck wearing the maillot jaune on green carpet is very frustrating, look his face, terrible and pathetic. Not the career he would like to have I guess. LBL wasn't enough with his abilities.

No, he doesn't. Neither does AS in my opinion. Such horrible TTists. Andreas Klöden deserves Tour title ;-)

Anyway I am surprised that some people find AS elegant on bike. I don't, but it's great to read that some do, Andy used a bike relatively smaller considering his height - and so do I :)

The 2012-2015 Sky train would have Andy isolated in a head group with 5 sky riders, by the end of the Agnello.
