Hello! He's won the Tour de France as well...


No he didn't. Thanks.


Yes, he did.

Who won the 1999 - 2005 TdF?
Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

There is a difference between winning and being given by default.

Ask the man himself. I think you will find he is of my opinion not yours. As is Scarponi about Giro11. Rightly so.

Ahh, well, your special, aren't you? Because...

"What's written down on paper could be one thing or another. But in the end what counts is your feeling, and the memory that remains imprinted on your retinas. What's on paper is secondary."

But for the rest of us, Schleck won the Tour in 2010. True fact!

Do you think your opinion about what Andy Schleck won is more important than what Andy Schleck thinks he won? Interesting.

It's not an opinion, it's a fact.

If a piece of paper says you did something does that make it true? No.

Ahh, yes. I was telling everyone how Andy Schleck won the Tour in 2010. Look, here's a photo of him in the winner's jersey!

If a piece of paper says that if you test positive you will be disqualified, then if test positive you will be disqualified. And that is that.

The 2011 Giro you can make a justifiable argument for, but the 2010 Tour - no way.

Anyway.

I'm pleased he's not packing it in.

I do have concerns. Frank was the one who cracked the whip with Andy's traninig IIRC.

But an on form Andy makes for a better race - especially if Contador is there too. The two of them could easily make life difficult for the 'sky' train and we'd have a just-the-favourites selection much sooner.

I'd be pretty sure that if Contador and Andy turn up to a GT together they will work together and turn the heat onto Sky, having fun in the process.

Frenchie, I hate to break this to you but generally winners ride to win, not to have a general hoot and laugh. Not really the top priority.

Let's trust no more dropped chain incidents, eh?

Ah. Fatal flaw in my argument.
