Read on line that Tour winner Contador is making big bucks in Europe appearing and racing in crits. He is earning 50,000 euro's per appearance. (I believe it is euros and not pounds) Thats around 100 K US dollahs. Not bad. I wonder how many of these he has lined up.
A german guy who has been involved in exposing many of the past doping scandals is trying to get the mud on Contador. Contador is quoted as saying(paraphrasing) 'what so and and so is saying does not bother me. I am tranquil'. Must be a little something lost in translation there.
