You pull no punches pmcg76, and you are right, we did discuss this months ago, and it came almost completely true.
The one thing I don't get is Lance and some of his supporters saying that Contador wouldn't have won the Tour without his team. I don't see that. I don't recall them doing anything really for him during any crunch time. It was Lance who followed wheels almost the entire race, while AC was often out front, dictating the race and the pace. It even seemed like he was frequently held back. Even if you take away the TTT, Contador still wins.
Contador's threats next year won't come from Armstrong, at all. They'll come from Basso, Schleck, and if they let him ride and he gets support, Rasmussen.
