That is incorrect:Falken said:My take on it is that Contador never counted on Valverde and Purito doing such a good time trial. He probably calculated that he would take at least one and half/two minutes on them in the ITT, and that he wouldn't get dropped by them in the mountains.
And Contador hasn't race much this year and the last 5 years he usually stopped racing after the tour except 2008 of course.El Pistolero said:Also, Contador is 29 years old. Froome is 27 years old. Hardly a difference.
