Sadly, Armstrong doesn't respond to being called "Ernie".

It will be interesting to see if Contador gets the help he needs when he gets older from his teammates. It is clear that Lance was a good team leader and his teammates respected him for that. I'm not sure that Alberto has that same respect from his team. Sure they respect his ability, but do they ride for him? I get the same feeling about Evans as well. It always looks like his team dislikes him.
