French deororant

Is Alberto Contador really back? Can we make that extreme statement, that after his dominant win in stage 5 of Tirreno-Adriatico that the Pistolero is firing again? Has the post-clenbuterol Contador returned to his pre-clenbuterol form, back in the days when he didn’t just win grand tours, he destroyed his rivals. Well, hard to say. However, […]
