Science in Sport, one of 2009-alberto Contador’s sponsors, set up an autograph session on the first day of this year’s Cycle Show in London.
Before this year’s Tour de France, I wasn’t particularly fond of Contador, but the way Armstrong and Bruyneel treated him throughout the 3 weeks was atrocious in my opinion, so he had my support after the first week of the race. I’ve met some cycling legends, but never a Tour winner so it made sense to buy a ticket and see him in person.
He arrived at 11:30 sharp, as it was advertised. He immediately started to sign autographs, to it was stipulated that no one should ask him to add his/her name.
A young fan and his icon.
A quite substantial crowd gathered to get his autograph and he patiently handed out the signed posters.
A happy and satisfied fan.
According to the organizers, this yellow jersey was one that he actually wore during the Tour.
