I have to write an essay comparing the two.
What quality/characteristic does one rider have that the other does not have. What do they both have in common?
both are in general good climbers and TT riders, but are there any specific characteristics?

Thanks for the input

Contador has two balls (as far as we know). Armstrong only has one (or none, depending on who you ask).

I know my cycling. I am just asking if anyone has specific characteristics..I have the basic stuff.
I believe that you know your cycling, I'm just saying you gotta do this research yourself. I don't think your teacher/professor is going to accept www.mtbr.com as a source. :p

In HS, wikipedia would have counted as a source. In college...not likely. Google Scholar would work, but it isn't exactly a source. It just helps you find good sources.

But as far as I'm concerned, the two guys are the same. But I won't say why. You'll have to do your own research for that (hint: watching some bike races where the two participate might help you get the information you need to make your own judgement).

Armstrong is a dick and Contador is a whiner.
Armstrong is yesterday and Contador is today.
Contador's young ass will kick Armstrong's old ass.

Contador has won the other two 'Grand Tours'; LA has not.

Contador has a sign that he uses for every victory, LA does not.

If they had to ride 30 miles and climb a mountain on their road bikes and ride back in the woods and over the rocks , who would win?

If there was nothing written about Lance or Contrador, you might get some sympathy.

But there are so many words describing either man, and plenty from last year about their relationship, it's obvious that you haven't done your research yet.

Read Lance's book, either one? Follow Contrador's tour last year or the year before?

Look over race recaps, which are online at velonews and cyclingnews, and you can get a great idea for an essay.
