Can't upload the profile for some reason.

Anyway the only question that remains is "can Contador also dance on the muur?"

He probably could, but shouldn´t, it´s way to risky, small roads, it´s gonna be a battle he don´t need to do. His battleground is the Vuelta.

He won't be able to resist, this is Contador. If he can win he'll try, even if there's a vuelta next week.

Would love to see Alberto have a pop at this stage even if it's just to get the spectators buzzing :)

What was a joke in June, Contador challenging the win of Eneco in the muur, now is a serious bet


Eneco jersey



From what I know Tuft can't cope with the Muur, so Boom and Chavanel are the favourites.

Lol why does anybody think Contador could take 45 seconds on Boom and 33 seconds on Chavanel, on a RVVesque stage?

Contador will be nowhere by the time they get to the last time up the Muur.

Chavanel.

What are Boom's credentials on a RVVesque stage?

He got 5th in E3 once right? Does that count as RVVesque? :D

Well there's still Chavanel, Terpstra and Langeveld above Conty, who all definitely have RVV credentials.

I don't know, how's Conti on the cobbles? I'd sure like to see him try. Contador, winner of the Eneco Tour, has a hilarious ring to it.

Boonen making the selection with Chavanel at his wheel, and the frenchman to take the overall.
I don't think Contador will be there, on the muur more powerfull riders should have an advantage on him; maybe he can try something for the fans on a non-cobbled climb but he won't have a serious chance for the stage.

Tuft did fairly well in Quebec City last year and the climbs are similar to the Muur in lenght and gradiant. I think that if he gives all he has, he can be around 10-20 seconds behind Boom and Chavanel at the top.

But he'll need to be in a great day.

Sometimes Alberto can't help himself. I don't think he needs to be there at all with the Vuelta coming up but you never know.

Agreed, old Sven is a tractor, but I don't think he'll appreciate the hilly bits too much, I'd go Chavanel myself ..

He can never help himself, that's just the kinda guy he is and that's why I like him so much.

I'm still wondering if he can stay on his peddles while climbing the muur lol
