Nix the Pistol, Alberto

Reconstructive surgery places Contador's season in doubt
Sounds like there's some doubt about whether Alberto Contador will be able to continue to race this season. Why? He's messed up his right hand from doing his signature "finger-bang". You wouldn't think that was particularly strenuous, but apparently, Alberto repeats this gesture 200 to 300 times a day and with such vigor that he's developed a "repetitive motion syndrome" that makes him unable to grip the brake hoods, shift gears, or grab the brakes.

I'd advise you to nix the pistol, Alberto; or at least tone it down. Your hand will thank you for it.

Until next time, ride long and keep the rubber-side down.
