Re: 2009 Tour De France
Lance is 3rd right now, BEHIND his teammate Contador by two seconds. Now that's not a huge number, but Contador made up 22 seconds on Lance in the most recent stage.
Personally, I think Lance would enhance his legacy if he backed off, announced they were all going to help Contador win, and played a good teammate.
Everything I know about Lance tells me he won't do that though.
