I don't think Contador did anything wrong, is the team; that's not strong enough to stay with the leaders (Valverde 2nd, and Luis Leon Sanchez 3rd). From what I saw; he was already isolated on the last climb, (the best defense is a good offense I guess)
about Lance Armstrong; I think it would be very hard for him to win another tour. he seems more committed to the fight against cancer(which is a good thing) than training or racing more towards a tour win" (he finished 9th on a charity ride just recently)
