LOL! Watching it live!
After a breakaway started Contador went to Armstrong and from the gestures asked if thats
"Is that OK to let them go?"
he replied(what I saw from lip reading:
"It's OK! don't worry!"
Contador went behind Armstrong, clearly letting the old champ dictate the race! Lance ain't a lieutenant domestic, lol , he's a general of the armies:D

My goodness, you obviously took LSD this morning. You saw something that didn't happen.

OK, I just listened to 10 minutes of how Lance still doesn't have to ride for Contador because he is still capable of winning because according to Bob Roll he "has a unique ability to recover better and better every day."

Some observations:
1. Lance clearly is weaker than not just Contador, but Schlecklet, Kloden, Wiggins, and several others. He isn't going to win unless there is a crash by Contador, and even then it will be hard for him to keep the gap he has even with the TT.
2. It is physiologically IMPOSSIBLE for a rider to recover better and better over the course of a 3 week tour. The human body does not work that way. The ONLY way for that to happen it with performance enhancing drugs. Period. No way around it.
3. I am sick of Versus and their reporting from inside Lance's colon. I don't think Mr Armstrong would agree with the crap they were talking about this morning. It is almost as if they didn't listen to him after Sunday's stage.

I would rage so hard if Bob Roll is getting paid by Versus.

Aren't people watching this stage? Everything is setup to a really interesting stage. Karpets in the lead, a breakaway with Voigt and Canc for the Schlecks, Van den Broeck for Evans and Cervelo has 3 riders up front for Sastre.

Astana is gonna have to work today.

Just after the race started and the breakaway started to form and Astana started to line up! Don't know what Contador said! But I did see Armstrong saying "It's OK! Don't worry...!" Contador gave him a padle in the back and went behind him! And the camera went away...

TBF to Belokki:

#
11:13 GMT

There are many riders ahead...bear with us while we get the names together. Voigt and Pellizotti are there...however Voigt is sitting up momentarily as his team-mate Fabian Cancellara is coming across with Martijn Maaskant (Garmin Slipstream).

Astana are chasing. Contador comes up alongside Armstrong and appears to give him a tap on the A$$ to let him in behind him - he looks a lot more assertive today than before, when he appeared almost like a nervous junior rider.

Armstrong smiles at the camera.

Belokki is actually a mind reader. He has to be, as he hasn't got one of his own.;)
I think Cyril Dessel is already struggling off the back.
Cav's gang are definitely out the back door....

And you're supposed to be someone who know everything about nothing! Not having a personal life can do that to ya;)! Get a life!

I just saw Martinez gesture to Pellizotti, "Let's stop off in the next village for a pizza," and I think I could lipread Pellizotti saying, "No, I just had one for breakfast."
