Credit a Tweet from Robbie McEwen with starting today’s controversy theory:
“I’m sure @Lancearmstrong did that on purpose to leave Cancellara in the jersey. He sat up in last 50m.”
Interesting thoughts, Robbie. Armstrong and Bruyneel did say they worked yesterday to help preserve Cancellara’s yellow to avoid defending it themselves in the first week. Maybe they planned it to down to the tenth of a second?
Interesting that Robbie noticed Lance sitting-up in the last 50km. I was too busy noticing the monster pull that Contador put-in just before the line. Could Contador have been trying to put Armstrong in yellow?
Maybe we’re reaching; maybe not. But it’s interesting food for thought nonetheless.
Let the pot be stirred! Thanks for getting things started, Robbie!
