    Andreu and LA

    I was suprised to see Frankie interviewing LA before most of the stages so far - sort of like the old days. Can we assume that the two have buried the hatchet - or have they just come to some sort of understanding for the TdF? They both seem pretty comfortable during the on-camera stuff.

    there's a piece on Velonews about it.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Both guys were really mature.

    I highly commend them both.

    (P.S I still hate Lance)

    My post was about the Armstrong vs Frankie interview. It should not have been moved.
    Livestrong. The personal fundmaker of Lance Armstrong. The company who are in business to not donate to cancer research, but only to inform people that cancer is bad.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.

    Lance showed very slight annoyance with Frankie towards of today's interview. I think its more because the Frankie's question was kinda redundant, but also I think Lance felt like Frankie was probing him to say something mean about Contador, or about the rivalry.

    In any case, both men again, showed a high level of maturity. It was a very comfortable interview to watch, in fact its one of the better interviews than other journalists.

    Another good job for both men.

    I'm guessing that Versus won't use that as a basis for one of their "filler" segments during the enhanced coverage broadcast.
