Alberto Contador has won 3 of the last 4 Tours of France, and the only reason he didn’t win in 2008 is because his team was barred from entering.Â Lance’s disdain for Alberto is well documented. Clearly he realizes that Alberto is the new superstar of the peloton and well positioned to break Lance’s record 7 tour wins.
When Armstrong began dominating the tour in 1999 he was 27 years old. Contador is 27 years old today and already has three tour wins under his belt — making seven tour wins look like a slam dunk.
No wonder Lance hates this guy! Soon we’ll all be wearing Contadorstrong wrist bands and Lance will just be a footnote in the annals of cycling.
