Most of the comments he has made that fit the 'whinging' tag have IMHO been taken out of context or poorly translated. I find his style of riding at the back of the bunch and animating things now and then quite refreshing. He seems like a solid pro to me. But others may have a different view.
Fowsto Cope-E said:I think Sastre was a great climber a couple of years ago but has just had a bad streak the last two years. I was impressed by his third at San Sebastian. Maybe he can be there for the Vuelta, at least in the top 5.

The Hitch said:He has won the Granddady of them all.
He has come 2nd in the Vuelta a Espana twice.
He has podiumed in all 3 gts.
He has been on the podium of a Gt 6 times - 3 in Vuelta 1 in Giro and 2 in tour.
Outside podiums he has got another 3 top 5 finishes and then another 5 top 10 finishes.
Or to make it easier to understand. Sastre in gts.
