Good grief, Airstream moulding arguements around what he can win!!!

2010 Bordeaux to Paulliac......... The contenders for the race rode into a very strong headwind that had developed during the day, early riders pushing into a 5mph wind the contenders 15 - 20mph....THAT was the significant feature of that Time Trial, nothing else!!
don't bother telling people that have the memory of an alzheimer

These discussions go to nowhehe. You fanatically defend Contador and you will necessarily make up another excuses if he loses the Tour.

Does anyone prefer to consider Froome an unconditionally better tt'er? No. Most people just think he has some edge in this exercise.

As I see some already unobtrusively ascribed Contador the advantage in techinique aspect. Based on what is quite unclear.

So you conveniently keep forgetting all the races contador does well.in?.no wonder you think he is crap.

brilliant tony was a beast that day, a monster, i didn't even mind him crushing Alberto and by the way I also loved the scene at the finish Alberto showed himself to be a true gentleman.
Taylor Phinney would have caught him too.
He wasn't such gentleman on the road.

where are you from if I may ask?

by the way don't you mean "genius creature"????
No, I don't mean.
Why would you like to know where I'm from? What difference does it make?
You can try to guess. It would be more entertaining.

Btw, I thought I'm on your ignore list.

Convinced Serfla and Airstream are sockpuppets!!!

I keep telling you Airstream people can only go on the available evidence and in that Froome doesn't come close to Berto, he's won nothing. They have never gone against each other mano a mano in peak condition (neither of them were at La Vuelta but maybe comparable) Contador won the personal battle hands down.

Lets wait and see what happens when they are at peak, then we can argue at length (I still think Froome has clinic related issues like Sky in general)

Who cares? Or the fact that Froome is a better TT'er is your personal challenge? :p

Based on your memories, you are an experienced cycling fans, however you act like a child. When Andy pulled off at PN last year, you started yelling about a cunning Tour plan, hogmix and all that jazz. Nothing chanhes. Now you are assuring me that Froome is nothing because he hasn't won anything. You know man everything happens for the first time in life. Though, I have no doubt you will take refuge in criteria of palmares and denegrate other GC riders for many many years. Is that an unashamed fanboy's nature, right? :)

Please elaborate :confused:
It's simple.
If Phinney have started immediately after Contador, he would catch him too.
The point is - Tony wasn't that brilliant. Just on expected level.

Edit:
About gentleman... Contador wasn't such gentleman at the moment Tony caught him. That gesture he made was anything but classy.

I'd just like to know
Then try to guess.

However the result of 09 TT is posted with no lesser enthusiasm, isn't it?
You said Contador would never achieve the tt prowess of Froome. So for this discussion, yes only the tt where he blew away Cancellara counts. Doesnt matter how many times he finished 30th or last or outside the time limit on tts, so long as we can show 1 tt where he was top dog thats all that is needed to disprove your comment.
