Contador's options and Fedrigo's "options"

Does anyone have a clue why Contador has an option to leave Astana if they can't maintain their Pro license and why Fedrigo can't do the same with Boygues being relegated to a conti-team? Thanks!

I'm not sure but I think it has something to do with the amount of threads a rider has on the Cyclingnews forums.

Astana missed a deadline to give in all their documents, triggering a rule which was brought in to protect riders on teams who could potentially go bust. The rationale is, if a team might or might not continue next year due to sponsorship issues, then riders on the team should be able to look elsewhere in october to ensure they have a job the next year, this rationale doesn't apply to Fedrigo.

Why would Fedrigo want to leave anyway? Bbox are still going to get into all the ASO races they want..

You'd better ask him, but he tried to left.

On the difference with AC, hasn't it something to do with their contract?

I'm thinking about making a thread called "How many KM's per week does Contador do?", or "What does Contador have for breakfast?", or "I'm a Contador fan boy and I love him so much and I want everybody to know that".

This was more about shedding some light on Fedrigo's lack of options, but clearly the best answer was "Why would he want to." Aside from that, there are some serious Contador haters in this neighbohood.

I think what he was asking was why can contador leave and fedrigo can't so technically this isn't a contador thread

Can you not delete them as a mod? :eek:

Or make Contador a curse word like **** or **** :D

we did this on a previous forum, except instead of asterisks the filter replaced certain words with fruit... alberto contador could become juicy tomato, d1ck could become banana...
