No commitment to Contador though. He'll "support the best guy" and he'll be training as hard as possible to make sure it's himself.

I don't know about you guys but I'm praying for a bit of in house friction to really spice things up. Lance will need to recapture his best because Contador is pretty special.

Can't wait for the new season to begin.

Thats the only thing that will make this years TdF intresting racing wise. If Astana do unite under one rider then they will completely dominate more so than when Lance rode under his own team. If Contador is attacking Lance and Lance is attacking Contador then it will get very intresting.

I think Contador will do him in the mountains, I'd like to see the reverse though. Either way it's going to be compulsory viewing.

this should be interesting. i'll give it to him, he has guts. not many would want to mess with the kind of record he has. losing at tdf '09 will chip away at his legend status even if it's just a bit.
