Nice Guys Finish Later

You can tell me i'm wrong, but i say Astana rode much too strongly today to inexplicably die in the last few minutes of the race. I think they intentionally held back so Andy Schleck could get his first Tour stage win. It costs Contador absolutely nothing and was a very nice gesture. Schleck gets his first win, Astana doesn't have to worry about defending the yellow jersey, and Contador's legs are that little micro-bit less tired.

Congrats to Andy! Well done to Astana.
