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.

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.

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.
