The entire dynamic of the 2011 Tour de France changed today as heavy favorite Alberto Contador was caught in a late crash and lost 1:20 to Cadel Evans and Andy Schleck......and Chris Horner and Levi Leipheimer. Contador is the best bike racer of the current era, but has been caught out at times. He should have been near the front with the rest of the GC contenders when the peloton was split by the crash. His inattention to detail may have already cost him the Tour.
This race is going to be more fun than I thought.
