When I woke up and saw the yellow jersey that I had left by my bed the night before, I asked myself: "what are you doing in Merckx's bedroom?" I couldn't believe it - Bernard Thevenet

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

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