"Finally, the last thing I'll say to the people who don't believe in cycling, the cynics and the skeptics: I'm sorry for you. I'm sorry that you can't dream big. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles."

This was so sad, and he came so close to winning still :( I'm sure if he had conserved that energy for the last lap, he'd have won
Alberto we love you
on the road
you don't need to say this stuff
we saw you on the road
you blessed us with 9 great shows
let's not argue the toss about the official count

Roberto Heras wins this. Celebrated his Vuelta 2005 title too early first and eventually too late, now. Masterpiece!
