Cancellara snubs Hinault

It it just me, or did Cancellara snub Hinault at the stage 1 podium? It seemed he shuck everyone's hand at least twice yet never gave Hinault a glance.

I saw Cancellara shaking Hinault's hand. Perhaps you were thinking of another rider from Astana?

It was nice to see Merckx and Thevenet on the platform, pressing the flesh!

I'd love to see Hinault have to present another Yellow Jersey to Armstrong.

I'd love it even more if the Astana sponsorship folded, team sponsorship was taken over by Armstrong, and Hinault had to present him with a maillot jaune with "Mellow Johnny's" on the front!

OMG you're bad! If you wind up in hell for that, keep an eye out for me.

Cancellara has changed teams?

i wonder about andreu and armstrong. the closest i've seen frankie to lance is the other day when andreu was interviewing levi and lance was in the background. i'm pretty certain lance won't talk to frankie anymore, yeah?
