Paris-Nice stage 4 question (SPOILER)

So Contador got a nice win, but how did Rebellin jump over him into the overall lead if they were tied at 12 seconds back after stage 3? Contador beat Rebellin by 2 seconds to the finish, then count the bonus times, how is Rebellin 6 seconds ahead of Contador? Rebellin did not get any sprint bonuses. What am I missing?

Levi obviously worked for Contador today, I wonder how they decide these things, roll the dice? paper-scissors-stone?

Contador is looking great! He'll be too strong for Rebellin. Levi is now working for Contador no doubt. Disco is too strong for rebellin's team.

Is Popovych riding the Giro this year?...and what about the Tour.

What about Basso and the Giro?

Hincapie's last big crash involved a detonating steerer tube. Julich's crashes tend to involve his sporadic inability to handle a TT bike @ speed.

Not that any of us could do it. The only time I was on a real TT bike it felt like some bizarre circus clown vehicle - and that was @ 10mph. Now imagine it on a damp road @ 35mph in a UCI TT.

I believe Levi said in the Prologue to watch out for Contador.

I would imagine Popvych and Basso will be at the Giro.
