    That explains why Astana wasn't invited to the Tour this year. They were afraid Horner would give Contador a piggyback ride all the way to the top of Alpe d'Huez!

    Amazing show of sportsmanship. ESPN, are you paying attention?

    Question: Why is Horner riding a Madone 5.2 Pro?
    There are only 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    The whole team rides 5.2s - supposedly they didn't need anything higher in the range because they already meet the minimum weight reqs. Levi races a 6.5 b/c he also uses an SRM while racing.

    My friend told me about this when we finished the road race, but I didn't really believe her until I saw her pictures! Awesome!

    Astana essentially traded Horner for Popyvich and some cash.

    Who got the better deal?
