Who's fat?! Contador to San Luis and more


A few things from Saxo-Tinkof press release:
1. Argentina's nice: “People here have been very kind to me as they were last year. It's great for me to launch the season here as there are fine possibilities of training"
2. Who's fat? - watch the vid :P - “My expectations are different from last year because the idea is to fine tune and adjust my weight, since I'm a few kilos over. But that's normal in January. It's true that I like to compete if I see an opportunity. I can hardly stop myself if I have god legs but I'm a bit overweight and when it comes to uphill finishes, it's all mathematics. There are riders here who are better than me right now"
3. Schedule: "Looking at my calendar, I will focus on the Tour de France. After Tour de San Luis, I will run the Tour of Oman, a race that I don't know that well and I will continue with Tirreno, that I don't know either but I'm excited to go, because until now, I always did Paris-Nice. Then I'll go to the Criterium International - another race with a great reputation and where I've never been in a good condition. Finally, I'll ride Basque Country and then the team will analyze the possibilities of riding some of the classics or go to the Giro.”
4. Tour de San Luis' favourite? “It's hard to say. There is an impressive list of riders. I could not say exactly. Nibali proved to be strong in 2012 and Dani Moreno and Purito will also be there. There are many riders as Van den Broeck or VanGarderen plus local riders who prepare at hundred percent for this race specifically and they are really strong in the mountains.”
PS
The vid is for fun :) Who's fat?!
