As discussed here, it looks like our skinny Spanish overlord will be dominating the Tour for years. The Accountant can time trial like Anquetil and climb like Gaul---he really appears to be the second coming of Fausto Coppi.
All of this is great if you're Spanish or thinking of hiring El Pistolero next year. But if you're the ASO, how do you design a course to create dramatic tension and prevent Alberto from being ahead by four minutes prior to the capstone moment of Le Grand Boucle?
