What the feck sort of pro is he?
what does he do all day? TDF focused ok but...

I don't get what you're saying. That he should be racing and if he won't he's not going to win the Tour? Or that he should be racing more frequently, as that's what he's paid to do?

Remember far enough back to 2005 when Lance would ride Paris-Nice, Flanders, and Georgia. Then head to France to train for the Tour? Seemed to work for him, no?

How about last year when AC won Nice, Pais, the Giro (a few days after laying on the beach!), and then the Vuelta. Was that enough for you?

Looking at it from a sponsor's point of view, if it were between Cadel and Contador on a return a simple return on investment basis...I know which one I'd be happy with and which one would be facing the axe :)

It's not about what you start, it's about what you win.

That is apparently Internetese for "AWOL" just like "lose" is spelled "loose" in 80% of web postings.

Ya I know...I just find it hilarious when people use terms they obviously don't know the meaning of. Lose vs loose is just not knowing how to spell but "A-Wall" implies not even knowing what the term means.

It really is getting a little tiring. Is doping what you discuss with your significant other in bed at night? with the family at dinner?

Other than contemplating getting/being paid, I bet the guy is out there putting on some serious miles/kilometers out of the public eye. You do not win GT's by sitting on the couch and watching "Price is Right"

The guy is a troll. All he does is post the same crap over and over again, no matter what the thread is about. He is either Realgains or Tom Morris, both of whom have been banned by numerous other cycling forums.

Definitely a troll, but I would have said he was either DickPound or PaulKimmage, both of whom seem to have little else to talk about in the media forum.

Actually I just went on a ride with AC this afternoon after we watched the Giro on his 12 foot wide widescreen surrounded by hot chicks. He said to tell Bigboat/Bikepure that whatever Bigboat/bikepure is doing is not nor ever will be as cool/smart/funny/sexy as what AC is doing at any given moment.

What bikepure asked is what we think Conta is doing? How is that off topic? He's probably training his AWC power a bit, and "reconning" if he's into that. As people on this forum we can also logically conclude he's on some very effective gear.

Bla, Bla, Bla hahahaha :)

nearly every single Tour rider has doped for the past 18 years. Maybe longer. This is extremely obvious. Only the blind or mentally handicapped (in my opinion) believe the WINNER of one of the most heavily doped sporting events in the world (maybe 3rd only to NFL and WWE if thats a visual sport) is actually clean or not fixed. And when I say fixed bros I mean members of the same F-ing team deciding who is the leader (because any 3 of them could win it).

"tous dope" they all dope is sprayed on the roads. In 2006 the Protour was revealed run on "enough blood to run a medium sized hemotology unit." !!!

low dose HGH in completely non traceable after a few hours, as is Insulin, IGF-1. There are lots of effective PEDs not even banned. De-proteinized cow blood was legal for years. Ha!

If any top Tour winner was clean, it would have been that nice mennonite man from Lancaster... Who was that? Floyd Landis!
