Andy Schleck Interview

Postby LeicesterLad » Tue Dec 18, 2012 08:20 am

CN: Looking ahead to 2013, what’s the one thing that keeps you going when you’re not racing and what’s the one goal?

AS: One thing is for sure, that I want to show people that I’m still here. That I’m still a good rider. I want to be in a race again and make a difference, to attack, maybe win the race. I have a lot of motivation. Every race I enter I want to do my best and I know I can do well. The first races will be really hard because I’ve missed a lot of races but what keeps me going is that I want to win races.

Well if I were Andy, I would have punched Bertie in the face for doping. But now Andy doesn't even see it as a clear positive!
How is attacking someone who has dropped there chain worse than doping?
Something to hide??
No respect, listen to your dad Andy. Quit with your brother, cycling a different world now.

Must say though, I did like his 'I will never quit' if Frank gets a ban. His attitude seems a fair bit more positive. He wants to actually try and win something!

Of course Andy wants to win. Don't make him angry!

*sticks FF hat on* hope he comes back with some good form. Him versus Contador and Evans was great.

He's a dork, but if he can sort his mentality out then he can still be the great rider that he's been threatening to be for so long. His LBL win proved that when he focusses properly and (literally) doesn't look back then he can achieve greatness.

S'funny. He gets alot of stick on this forum, but you think back to his Liege and TdF Galibier wins and not just that he won them, but how he did, what's not to like? I hope he wins something big next year!

Maybe its the frustration over the way he wastes his talent. A lazy ars* when it comes to training, only seems to give a stuff about the Tour, annoying beyond belief the way he wimpers without his brother...

I liked him until he whined about riding down a hill. Then I thought he was a softlad. Or was it his brother?

Whatever you say about Evans and bertie - they can ride a bike down a hill.

It was Andy whining one day in last year's Tour, and Frank the next. Cringe.

I think Wouter Weylandt's death had alot to do with that.

Either way he can't ride without looking backwards. Doesn't register as a GC contendor

Quite. When he wins he wins in style too.

Who was the last rider before him to have won a tour and a monument?

Or what about Riis? Is Amstel a monument? Probably not.
