he wouldn do that irritating thing.
2011 Tour de France
As for the respective strengths of the teams, if Contador was able to win past Tours while with the likes of Lance Armstrong and Alexandre Vinokourov, then clearly he can win with anybody. It unlikely the booing will matter much either, since I don think Contador very much cares whether or not people like him he did Nike Jacket Red
Here are some things you should probably come to terms with going in that will make your Tour following experience more enjoyable:
Cycling fans love to see the reigning champion dethroned. Sure, there could be an upset, and Contador could indeed finally reach his limits and lose the Tour, but don go in expecting this to happen.
for Alberto Contador? What did he do? In 2009, he was assigned to be the lapdog for Armstrong's comeback, and to support Astana's anointed golden boy, Alexandre Vinokurov. So on stage 7, rather than support his inferiors' efforts, Nike Hoodie Black And Red he decides to show who's the strongest rider. Up the Arcalis they go. Surprise! NO ONE from Astana, or any other team, can keep up. Then we're forced to listen to Lance Bruyneel whine that that wasn't the plan, and now they have to defend the yellow jersey, and AC may have cost them the GC win.
By now we heard all the reasons why Tour de France victory is far from assured for Alberto Contador:
which is 20 points higher than anyone has ever recorded, doped or not! It becomes obvious that he is the strongest rider, and that he doesn't even need team support to win, since he won without team support.
Then on stage 15, AC does it again, on his humanly impossible surge up Verbier, where it's determined his effort would have required a VO2 max of 98, Nike Jacket Khaki
I not convinced any of these will be a factor. First of all, if Contador found the Giro tiring it sure didn look like it traipsed through that race like Silvio Berlusconi making the rounds at a strip club, and he gave away stage wins like lap dances in the process. Plus, the whole tainted steak thing didn seem to be causing him too much consternation either. Mental stress can have the same energy sapping effect as brake rub, but at this point Contador brakes have been rubbing so long I doubt he even notices it anymore.
too deep for me. I prefer bicycling. You follow the Tour de France?
cycling fans have welcomed him about as warmly as French farmers welcomed McDonald
At the same time, though, the Tour de France is theater, which is precisely what makes it so enjoyable. And when you go to the theater, it helps if Nike Windrunner Olive
you have the right expectations. For example, you should know that, unlike the movies, theater actors will actually stop acting when you throw Milk Duds at them they won even give you your money back afterwards. Similarly, if you follow the Tour de France with the wrong expectations you will be disappointed, but if you know what you getting into ahead of time you will be delighted.
Last night, I found myself watching The Grand Illusion, French director Jean Renoir 1937 masterpiece about World War I. This may sound impressive, but I was only killing time before Boat Trip starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Horatio Sanz came on. Anyway, at one point Lieutenant Mar is talking to a vaudevillian, and he says:
Alberto Contador Is Going to Win Again
Hey, the team supports the strongest rider, not the most popular, or the favorite son. Those are the real rules. And AC followed those rules to the letter!
I am similarly shallow, which is why I too follow the Tour de France, and which is also why I will be bringing you shallow Tour de France posts on this website for the duration of the race.

Meanwhile, Andy Schleck doesn seem to have the same capacity for ruthlessness. Consider After Contador rode away from him on Stage 15, Schleck said stomach is full of anger. However, he acted more like I do when my stomach is full of dessert, which is to say he got all docile and cuddly, and by the end of Stage 17 they were hugging and kissing on the top of the Tourmalet.
