Gentlemen, you get to pretend to be both Lance Armstrong, and Andreas Kloden. You are on the final climb of the 17th stage of the Tour de France.
Lance, at the start of the stage, you are 9 seconds ahead of Bradley Wiggins, and 49 seconds ahead of Andy Schleck.
Andreas, you are 31 seconds behind Wiggins, and nine seconds ahead of Andy Schleck.
Lance, you have a little bit of juice left in your legs, but you're two minutes behind the lead group and Bradley Wiggins is on your tail - holding on - barely. Andreas, you are in the lead group, a little over 2 k from the summit, but your legs are fried. Alberto, and both the Schleck brothers have something left in their legs, and Bjarne Riis is savvy enough to know that they want to shake you before the top of the climb because they fear you will take the stage victory.
Your challenge - construct a plausible scenario where Astana finish 1-2-3 on the podium in Paris.
1. You do not get to change the stage 18 ITT times.
2. You do not get to change the results from stage 19.
3. You do not get to make ridiculous claims about Lance and Andreas kicking Andy's butt up Mt. Ventoux.
4. You do not get to presume Andy or Bradley crash out.
