Well Andy is no longer a GT bridesmaid. Tour winner.

I wonder how much satisfaction he will get from that?

Thanks,

Buddy

Given that was the Tour of 'chaingate', he may already even think he really won it anyway. :lol:

All that anger in his belly for nothing. He should have remained tranquillo.

Very little, I imagine. He will need to pull a Menchov.

I lose track of cycling for a couple weeks and wake up to find Andy Schleck a Tour winner.

I was having a discussion with 3 friends yesterday about this and it lead to me and two of them betting the 4th that, in the absence of Contador, Jurgen Vandenbroeck would win the Tour this year. :lol: This illustrates that nothing good may come from Andy Schleck being a Tour winner! We may have been intoxicated, too.

The odds? If he wins Tour, our naysaying friend owes me a crate of Duvel, and the other two a crate of Westmalle each. If VdB doesn't win, we owe him one crate of Duvel (collectively). Naturally, I'm going to lose the bet, but at the potential loss of only a third of the price of a crate of Duvel, I felt like going crazy. :lol:
