Well we now know where the Tour de France was won. It wasn’t beating the man it was man on the point of being beating taken advantage of the opponent he swerved around on the Port de Bales.

Without the 39 seconds that Alberto Contador gained from that incident Andy Schleck would have gone into this time trail still 31 seconds ahead and not 8 behind. In the end the gap that Alberto Contador picked up off Andy Schleck in today’s time trial was 31″, without Port de Bales they would have been tied on time.
