Albert Contador Wins Tour De France and the French Mess Up the National Anthem

I wonder if the french can do anything right when it comes to bicycling's greatest event. After winning the tour and taking the podium with his team mate Lance Armstrong the french decided to play the Danish National Anthem instead of the Spanish National Anthem.

I thought this tour was a big hit for Lance Armstrong and Albert Contador but it showed how much is lacking as far as competition goes. My personal favorite Levi Leipheimer was knocked out of the race early on with an injury and it made me lose interest rather quickly.

But congrats to Team Astana for their hard work.

This is one of those moments I wish they could move the Tour De France to somewhere else like Southern California.
