Contador didn't do anything wrong other than maybe not counter-attacking sooner. Once the gloves come off on the mountain finish they are off. Expanding your lead against your rivals at minimal cost to himself and the team (he didn't have LA, LL or AK ride to exhaustion a la Discovery Channel/USPS). And just in case you didn't know this but Contador has won 3 Grand Tours. The problem is that Mr. Armstrong hasn't accepted reality. When you decide to join the team of the best stage racer in cycling, you aren't the leader no matter how many TDF's titles you won. As I said before, imagine Hincapie/Heras/Landis telling the press in 2004 that they were there to win the tour....dadoorsron said:The team was doing fine prior to Contadors attack. He didn't counter anyones attack. He just rode off because he needs to seperate himself from his teammates because they will be the hardest ones to beat. Contador's actions made him look worse then any tactics armstrong used prior to his finishing win in 2005. Granted he never rode on a team that had this much strength. It takes a team to help win a tour. Just ask Ullrich, Evans about that. If you have No one to ride with you or help you or you have so much in fighting it blows the team apart. You see how many grand tours those two won.
I'm done with this topic. Until Mr. Armstrong starts acting like a teammate, he will bear the fallout for his passive aggressive tactics.
