I like Lance the bike rider, cancer survivor, and spokesman, but that is all. He is a real piece of work as a person. Contador may not have handled the situation well, but look at it from his perspective. You are the guy on your team. You are the world's best mountain climber and are the favorite to win the tour. Suddenly, your team brings in the divisive, strong willed, selfish old champ who immediately starts to divide the team. You KNOW that you are a better rider than Lance, so how are you going to act?
