Hushovd on a mountain breakaway.
If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.
Next would be the whole end of that same stage. That was about as hard a race to the finish as I've seen - the Schlecks and Contador, then all the rest strung out down the mountain behind.

Armstrong's gob on the podium
Andy celebrating as Frank crossed the line to take the queen stage.
I don't know, lance taking 3 years off and coming back and still getting on the podium should rank up there.
When Paul Sherwen called Ventoux something like, "That hideous beast."
Another of my favorite moments during the tour was the banning of Reid Rothchild...his posts were of similar motivations as yours. You're entitled to your opinions on Lance but it just gets old reading your same thought over and over again.
From Steephill, stage 15 (Verbier), very impressive solo effort:
"According to the video, Dutch rider Kenny van Hummel of Skil-Shimano was dropped 10 km from the start. That means he rode almost 200 km on his own at an average speed of 35.60 km/h (Contador rode 40.96 km/h) . He felt really bad when he got dropped (obviously) and wanted to give up but his DS told him: “Fight dammit!” and after a while he refound some legs -- translation by Ted van de Weteringe
Kenny van Hummel now leads the Lanterne Rouge competition by 39 minutes. (The Lanterne Rouge is an unofficial award that goes to the rider with highest overall time while still making the time cut for each stage.)"
The whole three weeks.
Lance demonstrates to pro cycling that not only can he take four years off, but also lose about a month of training due to his broken collarbone and still kick the vast majority of pro cycling's asses.
I found it very amusing.
"Nothing is so typical of middling minds than to harp on the intellectual deficiencies of the slightly less smart, but considerably more successful."
Bret Stephens, WSJ
Watching Contador's acceleration on the stage he took 2nd place in the GC (don't recall which stage it was off hand). Whatever you feel about his ****** trick, his attitude toward team tactics, or anything else, that acceleration was awe-inspiring.
"Cyclists have a right to the road too, you noisy polluting inconsiderate maniacs! I hope gas goes up to eight bucks a gallon!" - the dad from Calvin & Hobbes, 1993
Favorite Lance moment:
At 1.4 km on the Ventoux, Andy attacking and Lance beating Contador to mark him. (That was the one where the announcers incorrectly thought they dropped Frank). The old man was feeling his oats!
The guy crying because he won a stage.
Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?

Nicki Sorenson's stage victory celebration was my favorite celebration. Columbiere was the favorite moment.
pic 27 has the celebration.
The guy looks like a starving child that just got gifted a thanksgiving day meal.
