Looks like the two are looking to bury the hatchet..
Armstrong took it one step further, complimenting Contador by saying the Spaniard might just be “the most talented guy to ever throw a leg over a bike.”

Does that mean he already gave watches to Popo, Levi, Rast and Kloden (I'm sure I'm leaving someone else out)?
I doubt the watch will ever end up on Lance's wrist...but may make a good fund raising item for LiveStrong!

The article in VeloNews reported that Alberto had given everyone else from last year's squad theirs already.

its either more mind games or genuine efforts to move on and forget the past. I suspect the latter - but crazy stuff can happen.......

I think Contador never really wanted a fight with Armstrong.
It's a (recent) tradition.
I tend to agree that the press probably blew that out of proportion, but it did make for some
interesting reading etc.
was there friction between the two? undoubtedly
the tradition of the winner of the tour 'gifting' his team isn't new, most riders split their
winnings among the team the winner gets contracts and endorsements

it doesn't surprise me that things between them are better now. it's just like roommates. sometimes things are miserable living with someone, but once you split up things are great. it's a lot easier to get along with most people that you don't spend your whole day with, especially when you are competing for control of something.

From the velocitynation comments: rumor is that Lance's watch is 5:24 slow.
