Fark ! What a finish. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Lance !

Menchov was fully pumped. I'm surprised he didn't beat the crapola out of one of the photographers at the end. Thats the most emotion he's shown in 3 weeks. Legend.

That cut on Menchov's leg was ugly. That'll need some Krazy Glue put in it.

Its too bad Astana didn't have the humility and respect to just ride the freaking race as best they could. What a bunch of whiners.

Yes the Italian tabloid papers have always been at Lance. For years they've been talking about him in a negative light. Its just gutter press..... or was that the French press ? I can't remember now... I wish he would Twitter us to reminds us which country we are supposed to hate. I get confused.

Rabo team guy's bike change was superb, too.

I think they rehearsed that, in the sense that they agreed before the race if he gets a flat or falls, get out the new bike as fast as possible. You don't want to screw up a wheel change because you are too nervous, or to continue with a carbon bike that might have some tech problems after a fall... They looked like a formula one team doing a pit stop!

wow what an excitement. Does anyone think he could have won that TT, he fprobably lost 15-20s changin bikes and getting back in the rythm again. Glad it was just before the finish, otherwise it coul have gotten in his mind, losing time in every corner.

Sure beats all those bike changes once with Rasmussen in a TourTT. Rabo must have learnt, or at least they don't have Rasmussen changing bikes (famously picky, I hear).

Remember Riis once chucking his bike, and David Millar too.

Yea, he kept his head pretty well for the circumstances.
