Re: 2009 Tour De France
It will be interesting to see who goes to Team RadioShack. No tampering before 01/09. I think Armstrong is a driven person but he has never belittled or put down his team mates. Even in the dominant years you hear what both his team mates and more importantly what his competitors say about him - that's important. His going to have real problems if he stays at Astana because there is no doubt Vinokourov is going to want to be the leader no matter what. Lance just said that they have a number of guys who can win the tour and they didn't have a declared leader. Contador could not take that - I mean in the first week of the tour Astana had four of the first five spots and even after Pyrenees they occupied four of the top ten.
