Looks shopped.

Not saying Armstrong wouldn't talk crap to Contador, just saying that pic looks shopped.

It may be the result of oversharpening, though.

I assume its a screen capture from someone's TV broadcast. Don't know what kind of artifacts that would create.

Good point. The blurring on Contador's left arm, and around his cables, which I was attributing to a poor knock out, may just be compression artifacts.

It looks like he's just telling him a "knock knock" joke.

Lance: "Hey Alberto...Knock knock"
Alberto: "Que está ahí"
Lance: "Joe"
Alberto: "Jose' que?"
Lance: "No...you have to say 'Joe who?'!"
Alberto: "Joe mama!"

Lance is either in the middle of saying "MEEP" or giving his take of his new look, Magnum.

LA is singing the Mexican Hat Dance to AC, even though he's a Spaniard. But LA is from Texas and it's the only hispanic tune he knows.

From various reports in the peloton (not from either team or from friends of the two) they were chatting about how they were feeling after the previous two crash filled days.

Come now, if Lance had yelled at Alberto that's all Versus would have talked about, to the exclusion of even trying to commentate the race. Alberto tried to sass and the father-figure/savior of the peloton reminded him of his place, that sort of thing.

It's just taken out of context, like the podium shot from last year where Lance pops a 'wtf' expression because the wrong national anthem plays, but instead has been used exclusively out of context as the default 'bitter rivalry' poster.
