Then Contador probably apologized for Schleck's poor bike handling?

who really know what Contador apologized for. Probably he just did it because that is what some people do when they are brought up that way and they see somebody embarrassed by a situation. I mean blowing a shift change in the age of STI is quite humiliating, don't you think? right there for several millions of fans to see

Did you even read the interview? he didn't bring it up, the interviewer did. And how did he misrepresent what happened?

Quote:
CN: Do you feel angry in way because of the way you won the 2010 Tour, angry with Contador angry with the race?

AS: No Iím not angry. I was angry with Contador when he attacked when my chain came off but itís not like heís my enemy. We still talk and he apologised.
Quote:
CN: Just going back to a previous question: what do you think was worse, Contador attacking you when your chain slipped in 2010 or the fact that he tested positive in the race?

AS: The clenbuterol is still a discussed matter. Some believe him, some donít. For me, it was worse that he attacked me because that was not sporting. I wouldnít have done that. For the rest...

Nahh, he saw that his friend was distraught and traumatized and thought it better to apologize than to compound Andy's anguish by criticizing his lack of the most basic of skills.

Don't you think it's stupid in the age of internet, almost instant (and free) flow of information and limitless storage space to claim something what can be refuted in a second?
The fact he felt need to make a video the same evening when incident happened speaks for itself.
Your favorite rider won't look greater if you belittle or etiquette his opponent. It will just make you look pathetic and immature.

Indeed, Andy is probably ashamed of himself so he tries to make everyone think Alberto is the bad guy and it was totes not his own fault. Disgusting. "Oh it was not sporting" whine whine whine get yourself together crybaby. Bjarne told Alberto it was best to apologize but I believe it would have been better to tell everyone the truth "no I'm not gonna apologize for Andy's poor bike handling skills" As long as he keeps whining and acting like a spoiled brat I will never start liking him again.

The only reason Alberto apologized is because Bjarne told him it was the best thing to do. And of course the French's pathetic reaction didn't help one bit god those frenchies
