    conspiracy theory: LA robbed of fraction of a second

    hey, think abt this for a minute: astana is beating all the splits, then TIES the fastest time?

    it looks astana won, then we have to wait a few minutes for some unknown officials to declare whether astana made it under the wire by a split second, or not?

    I think it was fixed like a Florida election. The french don't want that deal to fall lance's way. I think it is time to go to the B samples of race timing.

    Uh, I think you're confusing the stage times with the overall time.

    Lance did it to himself. As the 5th in line, if he would have tucked up along side the guy in front of him, he'd be in yellow right now. If you watch the footage, you'll see him sitting up and actually shifting through his gears as he was crossing the line and there was a 4 foot gap in front of him.

    Of course you also know that not having the jersey is a good thing in a way too.
