Alberto Contador has issued the following apology for his not noticing the ‘mechanical’ of Andy Schleck yesterday and then taking advantage of it for pretty much the last 24 km of yesterday’s stage.

Wonder what Andy Schlecjk would rather have. An apology recorded in your hotel room, rather that on the podium or in the press interviews afterwards, or 39 seconds back? Hmm tough call.

I reckon most of the neutral cycling fans will be backing Andy Schleck everytime he goes on the attack today or on Thursday.
