Contador is very lucky he has a good team around him and a smart DS or the Schlecks would be tag teaming him all the way to Paris.
This is absolute rubbish. If the Schlecks had started jumping Contador they would have gained less time on Armstrong, Kloden, Wiggins etc. They had no choice but to work together and gain as much time as they could. They knew they couldn't have got rid of Contador so were forced to drag him along to the finish.
Contador's 'smart' DS didn't even bother to follow him in the car. Instead he followed his domestique Armstrong. Says an awful lot about Bruyneel's loyalty.
