    Yes, yes, yes, yes but more importantly what do we all think of the rug?

    What looks odd is his lack of calf muscle or any muscle really. Looks alien like. YUUKKKKKKY

    It really ties the room together?

    I like the way the wiggly lines compliment his veins myself.

    You reckon he put a band around the top of his legs to make his veins bigger?

    Either way he has come a long way from the fat boy of the past and Contador is not going to be scared by that picture.

    Everything is filtered through a Contador shaped prism.

    Looking rather similar to Wiggins' legs the year he won the Tour which I have to say looked more like someone that had been starving themselves rather than training but if it works...

    What I'd like to know is how he took that picture?

    All depends on the actual colours.

    All that will scare Contador is the knowledge that if Froome can hit 2013 levels of form, he has no chance to beat him this year in the Tour.

    My gut feeling though is that we are not going to see Froome in shape this year and Contador is going to be uncontested in the Tour this year. Which will be a shame. Really want to see a proper ding dong.
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Contador's top form would beat Froome's 2013 form.

    Contador's top preperation would beat Froome's 2013 preperation.

    I have wondered for some time how the GC riders get so lean. Their %BF must be very low. Any idea what they take? I know how body builders strip fat, but cyclists need carbs so that process wouldn't work.

    Odd comment considering how out of this world and beyond normal Frenchie thought Froome's performances were in the mountains last year, and his implication that Froome was on the juice.
    What does that say about Frenchie's hero?
    (Other that the fact he has been on the juice for most of his career.)

    As for the rug, had to say without knowing the colours.

    Well that proved a set-back to my mood.
    On every level, those 2 posts could inspire normally calm and rational people to extreme violence.

    Oh I rather enjoyed it. Sarah Jones is a little bit awesome.

    The fastest ascents of Mont Ventoux:

    16. 2009: 58:45 Andy Schleck 21.96 km/h
    17. 2009: 58:45 Alberto Contador 21.96 km/h
    19. 2009: 58:50 Fränk Schleck 21.93 km/h
    21. 2009: 58:53 Roman Kreuziger 21.91 km/h
    23. 2013: 59:00 Chris Froome 21.86 km/h

    The competition has been pretty weak the last few years. In 2009, Andy had been attacking and there were lots of accelerations / decelerations slowing the overall time down a bit. Froome's performance looks pretty average. Hope Andy can get back to a good level soon to prove it. Contador could well give Froomie a good schooling this year aswell.
