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?

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.

I finally got around to checking the flash drive that I stuck in my pocket. Courtesy of Brian List, my camera operator extraordinaire.

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?
