# If They Were Tied....

#### Chick Chandler

If Andy and AC were exactly tied on time at the end of the Tour, How would the winner be determined?

You mean tied to the milisecond? well that is highly highly unprobable, but if it happened schleck would win based on his 2 stage wins. And if contador hadnt given him the tourmalet stage, then it would be based on who had more 10 placed finishes i think.

#### Ferminal

Time trials are measured to the 100th of a second, so there would be a countback based on the prologue and stage 19.

If they were still equal, it would go on stage placings (whoever has the higher placing on average wins).

#### Square-pedaller

L'Equipe published the calculation today. Inline stages are recorded to the second, and time trials to the nearest 1/1000 second. If Schleck hadn't lost 39 seconds through chaingate, he would have won the Tour by 640/1000 of a second.

Wet t-shirt competition and/or kiss-off.

They keep riding on rollers until one of them can't. No food or water.

#### Master50

Most wins, most second, etc. If there was still a tie then the placing at the final stage.
Andy would have won the overall with 2 firsts on stages.

I'm not sure if a link will work, as it's the online paid version:

this is what it said:
"640/1000e
Sans l’incident du port de Balès, où il avait perdu 39’’ sur Contador, Andy Schleck serait aujourd’hui devant Contador au général pour 640 millièmes de seconde. Explication : 39 secondes les séparent ce matin. C’est le temps perdu lors de la 15e étape par Schleck, victime d’un saut de chaîne dans le port de Balès. Sans ce déficit, les deux coureurs, classés dans la même seconde, auraient été départagés par les millièmes enregistrés sur leurs chronos (prologue et contre-la-montre d’hier). Et Andy Schleck aurait été devant pour 640 millièmes de seconde."

No wonder Contador was crying at the end of stage 19.

Vino would be the equalizer.
