Why did Armstrong attack Contador, right at the end?
He should be helping his team mates, not dropping them.
Trying to steal time to protect his position and leaving them behind, is just a stupid mistake.:rolleyes:

See? Doesn't quite ring true, now, does it?;)
I simply cannot believe he would attack his teammates like that. Those 4 seconds could cost Astana second and third place on the podium...I guess he is only riding for himself. He owes everyone an apology tonight at dinner...

I know this disappoints team FDQ, but LA was attacking the same guy AC/AS/FS were initially attacking in the last mountain stage.....Wiggins....while the rest were snoozing, LA was cruisin'....

ask LeM if seconds don't count....
That was exactly the point. Thanks for making it, team 3WF.;)

Shame Ballan didn't make it, he was really pushing.

The overhead shot of the sprint showed just how clearly Cav won. It must motivate his team to chase hard when they know they have an almost guaranteed victory.

Roll on Champs Elysee. They get a good camera angle there. IIRC, it's so broad they set up a special lane behind a barrier for a moto to stay with the front of the sprint running a super slow-mo camera. Should be a good one.

There's a little molehill to get over before then though isn't there? ;)

Props to Femy Beppu of Skil for finishing 7th. Did anybody see his facial expressions as he was sprinting to the line?

Sheesh every post by you is bashing LA, he didn't, "attack," he just stayed at the front of the pack. Before you say it, I am not an Armstrong fan, but you should stop taking everything he does so personally and calm down a bit.
