    Where's the option for: "Rider with the lowest elapsed time."?
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    In another thread someone suggested that Astana was playing up the internal rivalry to distract and confuse...and the more I listen to Lance's interviews, the more I think this has to be the case. If it isn't, his responses to some question are surprisingly playground squable-ish. Looks like a bad attempt at acting the part. All the while Contador is quietly hanging safely on his wheel waiting for the mountains when Lance will happily step aside and throw himself down as the support rider he knows he is in this race. My vote goes for Alberto, and I'll be absolutely floored if Lance is able to be dominant in the mountains. I could maybe see him chasing Contador up Ventoux and perhaps going for the stage win there, but you don't get to the professional level of sports without being able to say one thing while planning another.

    Really? I have him crashing into the Simpson Memorial in one stupendous crack, as he battles Contador up Ventoux for the victory. The guy is a tough ******* whose pride knows no bounds. I see it leading to the crack of all cracks.
