Contador Booed Again

Or so it seemed to me at today's yellow jersey presentation.
When I was getting excited about today's stage, I failed to note that the stage, despite having two category 1 climbs and two uncategorized, featured a long descent and then a flat stretch to the end, so the final showdown between Schleck and Contador will not come until Thursday. Moreover, it is not quite final, as there is also a time-trial of some length to come.
Today's stage was not a complete waste, though. There was a successful breakaway in which Lance Armstrong participated, though, as he ruefully admitted in a post-race interview, the old legs were not up to both a challenging breakaway and a successful sprint finish.
Moreover, careful study of recent podiums has shown that pantsuits are the standard for the presenters of the stage winner, and the far more fetching skirts and/or dresses seem to be what the other winners get. I forgot to check the air kiss protocol today to see if it was still three starting on the left.
In other news, apparently the US FDA wants a place in the Tour de France. I am befuddled why they think this is their mandate.
