The other comeback: Roberto Heras

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ouch. To go from being a pro dragging Lance up climbs to being beat by a guy with a baby on his back.

That would be hilarious if the guy actually raced with the baby on his back!
