Any thoughts on the direction AC takes his career? Do you think we'll see him in other grand tours or will he become a TdF specialist ala Lance and pursue breaking lance's record?

I hope it won't happen, but I predict AC will skip on the Giro until he stops winning the Tour, but maybe he'll do the Vuelta?

Doing the Giro with the goal of winning doesn't seem to be the wisest move -- two years in a row we've seen the Maglia Rosa blow themselves up when it came time for the Tour. So I'd say though we might see Contador in the Giro it will only be for training and not for overall contention.

Conti's already won the Giro and the Vuelta. Maybe next he'll concentrate on the Classics. After all, he did pretty well on the cobbles and he enjoys short steep climbs. Maybe he'll do RAMM. Maybe he'll open a sports bar, or a string of niteclubs.

He'll change his name to Contrador to keep the illiterates happy. He'll make a yearly offering of a cheap Spanish quartz watch to Andy Schram as a token of contrition for his lack of sportsmanship. He'll keep winning stuff. He probably won't be a Radioshack rider. He'll sometimes have currant buns for tea. Pick out the 'worthwhile' from that lot.

You Sir, have just won the internet! Thanks for playing everyone.


Andy and Alberto will get a condo together in Paris and continue their bromance on a brand new Specialized Tandem, to be chronicled by the hilarious must-see new sitcom "Splitting Yellow", coming this fall to BBC America.

He is going to open a gold finch farm and raise those little yellow birds and free them at the beginning of the Tour next year. He is going to join Versus and continue propagating the LA vrs. Contador rivalry even if LA isn't racing just to make it interesting for the US spectators.

He has already won 5 grand tours and he is young. 7 isn't that big of a number.

It appears that he has fingerbanged his bike, helmet, cap and just about everything else he owns.

I can't see him doing the Giro, and Vuelta any time soon. He will probably just stick with winning paris-nice and the tour for the next decade, or until his team is not allowed to ride the tour for some bull sh!t reason.
