Alberto's been busy outside of races too...

Too many pictures, too little time!

Alberto's first public appearance after the news about his clenbuterol positive broke out. No idea why Samu and Ivan are looking at him like that.

lookie

At his first Saxo training camp, Alberto arrived mucho sadface.

So, Bjarne had to make the guys do fun things. A lot of fun things.

Snorkeling in a kiddie pool?

At the beginning of 2011, they were looking for eagles, I guess...

Racing, racing, etc... then the off season, started early for Alberto, with a visit to Herning.

And a stop by the Saxo Bank HQ.

He got married (finally!)

hitched

And then had a really rough time, in a really nice suit.

They invited Alberto at the presentation of both Giro and TdF routes.

He had fun at the Giro 2012 route unveiling.

But at the Tour de France unveiling, it's like Alberto and Samu knew the race would eventually
be one freakin' nightmare.

hmph

At Saxo Bank HQ again, trying to explain why there's no wedding ring on his finger. Lost? Found? Even I don't remember.

It was time for fun Saxo training camp again! Part of the fun: building a cycling school in 24 hours!

Floating around in the sea...

Having the president (Shimon Peres) sing you Happy Birthday...

Fortunately, the story doesn't end here. Not by a long shot.

I scrolled down a bit too much and just saw the bottom of the last picture and it was Berto with someone in a RadioShack kit and I was all: 'I would very much like for you to stay away from Chris' and then I remembered Andy :S

Ahahahaha! You're cute. But yeah, the feeling is mutual, I don't want Chris anywhere near Alberto, or anyone from Radio Shack who is not Andy or has not left the team.

But seriously, Andy should be at the damned Vuelta.

You know, Lance technically fits those criteria ;p I'm full of love about them again. Also with Andy, even if I was planning the sad future of that 'verse again today

I'm sure he'll be watching.

Also, this reply might be a bit late, but I only just noticed it- I think LJ is messing up on comment notification e-mails again

Awesome! But... come on, would you still go ahead with *that* scenario now, when poor Andy is in such a bad spot? I mean, he deserves love and kisses and fluff right now... not *that*. Hey, at least Alberto is full of happy atm and can pass it around to the other two.

He should be. Alberto will put on a show, I'm sure of it.

Uff, again? Having been off LJ for so long, I've kind of forgotten the glitches. Better late than never, though.

I have to. It's all planned and I can't change it now because then I would have to think of something different. It's still years away and, believe me, he's getting lots of love and kisses right now ;p Plus, if the sad future didn't happen, there wouldn't be all of those adorable babies- some of them wouldn't be there. Anyway, the next big story in that 'verse is Cav/George and that is all happy so that's good :) But what's happening now is that Andy is insisting on getting the babies all dressed up in miniature cycling jerseys to watch Daddy Berto's first race back

Yeah, I'm counting on it

I thought it was that, but then I was getting some other notifications so maybe it was just a few that got lost.
