The internet never forgets but how our descendants will handle the situation is unknown.

Don't worry, Andy won't be happy as much as if he has brought back the maillot jaune in Paris. Himself told that to medias.

Could Always discuss who came 3rd just for some variety... Menchov, Sanchez, JVBD2...?

He may be listed as the winner but he didn't win.

You hope, but as technology marches on and on, the footage and the availability of such footage will only increase. You know that. We all know that. You're in denial. :D

Sky train (which originated Astana train).


This, the 2012-2-15 Sky train would have brought Andy back on the Galibier on even before. At worst if the Sky train was Evans team they would have got him within a minute on the climb and Evans would have caught him on his own and passed him.


The 2012-2015 Sky train would have Andy isolated in a head group with 5 sky riders, by the end of the Agnello.

Well I wasnt alive in 1904 but i still know Maurice Garin won that tour but was later stripped of the title.. If the history books shows that, they would probably also show Contador winning the 10 tour :)

Can you give any single example of 5 sky riders isolating any big rider in grand tour?

I personally do not think being second to Contador twice ( one of the best GT riders) and Evans once (top 5 GT rider of the last 15 years) is anything to be be ashamed of though

Once. That's what the official results say, and if you think otherwise, you should probably take it to The Clinic.

In this case twice was definitely right. The original comment was about Andy not really feeling like a Tour winner so the respond was that even if he only got 2nd twice its still an impressive career.
Btw, he was also 2nd in the giro 2007. I always feel as if that race is already completely forgotten.

I feel that Andy winning The Tour that way was the worst thing that happened to him.
It probably lessened his motivation (yes, I know about injuries), and in comparison with successes of his nemesis that "win" rung that much hollower. All that left him bitter and frustrated.

I thought the story was that he was always a troubled man, even when he was good at his job?
