    The Vuelta's going to be incredible. Astana vs CSC! Both teams are very strong, but of course CSC's going to be tired from the TDF, so we'll see how well they can handle Astana.

    Levi could be a leader on many other teams for GC (sure, not a real potential TDF winner, but a podium potential) and yet he's possibly 3rd best GC on his own team!

    agree Don, looking forward for this one!

    Levi looks very good, so I picked him over Contador for the GC.

    Thanks Victor for the photos!

    Are you sure this wasn't Contador giving Levi a little gift before expecting him to fall back in line and be his dog for the next month?

    Maybe Contador already had a Shitty HD monitor and wanted the DVD Player instead?

    Personally I don't think Leiphiemer has what it takes to be Contadors censored for a few weeks.

    Like the bronze medal in Beijing?
    Nope, I still think Levi looks very good for the Vuelta, though he might have peaked too soon.... we'll see.

    Spanish Cycling Federation tried to claim about Levi´s handlebar in the TT and Contador said no way...

    was it another :wink::wink: to Levi?
