Tour de France honors the man they cheated

In Uncategorized on July 28, 2009 at 10:04

Some who still are watching cycling after Michael Rasmussen was cheated in 2007 may have noticed that they played the Danish national anthem during the Ceremony for Contador.

While it by no means can ever replace the loss they have inflicted on Mr. Rasmussen by forcing a manager close to a nervous breakdown to redraw him from the race, it was a nice way to state that they were sorry and did a terrible mistake back then.

As Danes we are happy to receive this confession.

Maybe next year we may actucally watch Tour de France again.

As for Contador he was the real champion in this race, which became his first real win. Of course he is now listed for two victories, but the first one did not count in our hearts.

It will interesting to watch who will be at the top of the race next year. This year a almost impossible route and only two teams competing for the victory made is a boring race. That does not make Contador’s victory less impressive. He wanted to win and he beat not only Saxo Bank who was the only competitor outside his own team, but also teammembers like Armstrong and Kloden, who could have won on their own if he had not been in the race.

Congratulation Mr. Contador.

Thank you Tour de France organization for the apology
