To be fairfor most new future stage racers, their 'legends' will either be Indurain, Contador or Pantani(?) so no surprise. Who wouldn't want to climb like Contador :p

I'm not sure what to expect from Aru at Vuelta.
His talent promises a lot, but it will be his second GT of the season and not the favorite one.
Would be nice to see him motivated to rub shoulders with the heavyweights, though.
 
I'm so looking forward to see what Fabio can do in this coming Vuelta :) I have flash views of him, Nairito & the Alien dropping the soul out of the rest of the peloton at will and then fighting among themselves for honours

vai Aru!!! :)

Strange. I remember him saying Pantani was among his idols growing up. Maybe it was PR bull**** after Montecampione.
Plenty of PR crap these days even from the riders at the beginning of their careers. Not exactly the best way to introduce themselves to the audience. Instead of showing their real persona and making their authentic appearance, they're trying to attract the fans through mutual sympathies.
But this Contador thing could develop into something constructive for all associated sides.

Don't inult Aru lol. Hold the wheel? Aru has proven in a GT to be a "tiny" bit better uphill. I do believe Kelderman has more chance of a GT win though call me crazy but i think in TDF with 70+ITTKM he will win a few Tours his progression has been great this year.
