A few minutes ago Alberto Contador pretty much put away this year's Tour de France. The American papers will focus on Lance Armstrong moving into second overall, two notches up from yesterday (Rinaldo Nocentini, the yellow jersey over the last two days, was never going to hold onto it in the Alps). But Contador just put 1'37" between himself and Armstrong. Lance will now have to ride for his teammate Contador and this silly spat he started over leadership in Team Astana is now over.

Contador wins, but Armstrong has prevailed for history.

At nearly 38 years of age, and recouperating from a broken collar bone, Lance has shown that he is still one of the best riders in the world and has erased, at least in my mind, any doubts that he is the greatest Tour de France Champion of all time.

Let's see if he can hang with the youngsters tomorrow on Ventoux.

By the way, what's with the advertisements on LeTour homepage?
