Contador vs Froome

Head to head questionaire.
What would you be if you werent a cyclist

Contador :Vet

Froome: I studied economy at Uni (cue 2 minute speech to basically say:Economist)

Your idol?

Contador Lance

Froome :Jens Voigt (cue 2 minute speech about why he likes Voigt)

The others best quality?

Contador :Froomes Time trial
Froome: Contadors explosiveness (cue about 1 minute speech)

Finish the sentence "If nothing goes right...
Contador: Champion is revealed
Froome: well, i would say (2 minute speech culminating in - ) take it as an experience

Qualities youd take from other riders
Contador:
Indurains tt
Armstrongs determination
Pantanis climbing

Froome:
Sprint like Cav (2 minute speech on Cav)
Voigts determination (2 minute repeat speech on Voigt )
Indurains tt (run out of breath by nbow)

Best moment of your career
Contaodr: when i won Chrono in Annency


Froome : Stage 17 of last years Vuelta to Pena Cabarga. That was special because.... (you get the picture)

Personally, I don't accept that the 'dark era' has ended, it has just morphed into a new guise.

    Crazy but true, at the airport Alberto Contador came to me and asked to take a picture of him... For his twitter!

    This pic I think:


    The Iberian part of the team. :D 

     :( cos only a very small Jesus face.  :(

    I originally read this as Alberto asking you LaFlo to take the picture!

    Well imo he shouldnt be here at all, if all this wishy washy business of backdating bans was not considered. So it should have cost him more than just this.

    Yet without Purito in this form, I would see him winning this race though his level isnt where it should be to win a Vuelta and if not for Froome's fatigue, Cobo's problems, Anton's constant lack of form and Piti's time loss he may have been even more seriously challenged.

    Still I see him breaking Purito by Stage 20 and that should be enough to win, though one never knows...

    Quote
    Was Rodríguez his toughest rival that he’s had to face in all his Grand Tour victories? “No, I would say the rival who was toughest was myself. Purito [Rodriguez] was always there and was very hard to beat, but I have to remember the Giro of 2008, which was very close at times, and the Vuelta of the same year which Levi [Leipheimer] almost snaffled off me. They’ve all been difficult.”

    Interesting how he seems to overlook Schleck :P

    Well, officially he hasn't won any GT against Schleck anymore. And I think he (or the Saxo press officer) wouldn't want to stir up memories of a doped Contador while being well on their way to winning the Vuelta, supposedly clean.

    I don't think that's why he didn't name Schleck ???

    On second thought, neither do I.
    It's more plausible that he only thought of those riders that had given him a hard time in the Vuelta. And honestly, Andy Schleck hasn't given Contador much of a hard time in the Tour, either.

    I'm guessing Bertie will be performing the role of head waiter on Sunday, got to keep the decent Spanish riders well stocked with food and drink! ;D ;D

    I can't remember now, but it was pretty much an all-star team, wasn't it? When I saw the startlist, I thought: too many brides, not enough bridesmaids.

    I don't really think the parcours suits Contador, although he could be really useful to the team. It just doesn't seem appropriate for his sort of riding. A Classics guy has to take this, so I'd have to opt for Sanchez, Valverde and possibly Rodriguez.

    OT, I suppose, but Contador doesn't really seem like a one-day man. This and Lombardia could still change that of course. ;)
