Its taken 102 pages but the "drugs / cheats" comments have appeared! Honestly thought it wouldve been before now (see very first post....)
Anyway....awesome ride by Contador up Mt Etna the other day. He flew up the last few km's - brilliant stuff to watch. Got to be favourite now looking at the form he's showing....or is it just the drugs??.....

I tried to stay up for ITV4 Tour of California I really did, but I was so miffed that stage 1 had been cancelled cause of the snow & stage 2 was a watered down version, it seemed pointless.
Even though Schleck is running he's obviously not contesting, waiting for Contador in France.
HTC Columbia looked like they need to drive the train earlier, but its a new younger group.
I'm sure the more experienced team members & the technical team will whip them into shape quickly!

Really I can't believe it's taken up to 102 pages for that comment, thought it would have been earlier so thats really good.

Must be honest after Weylandt's death I have struggled to watch the rest of this tour which is a real shame, Looking forward to a fresh start with the TDF now.

I can't see anyone coming near to getting the better of him (except maybe the local beef farmer ).

Dave Harmon, eurosport commentator said on his twitter page that it could be down to Contador (and the Saxobank team) being one of the main objectors to the climb of monte crostis that meant it was removed from the stage.

I see thanks for letting me know, I must have missed that on eurosport.
