The Tour de France ended today with Alberto Contador in yellow. He has been picked on in the media a bit, but he desrves the win and he has always deserved to be the leader of his team. I am a huge Lance fan, but I believe in my heart that AC was the best rider in the race.
Sandie might even be coming around as she suggested we open a bottle of Spanish wine to toast Alberto for the win.
One more thing... was it Alberto or was it Snake Oiler in the final time trial on Stage 18? Things that make you go, "hmmm."
So... A big congratulations to Alberto for the win, Andy Schleck for second place, and an even bigger congrats to the old man (Lance is 37) for coming in third with those two twenty-something whipper snappers! Not bad after being away from racing for over 3 years!
