Contador wins 2009 Tour de France, Armstrong takes third

It was to be another great American come-back story, but not to be this time. And, after last weekend’s disappointment for Tom Watson, this has been a bad year for the hopes of old geezers everywhere. From what I’ve read about Armstrong, I doubt if he’s happy “just to be in it,” but still for us over 40 or 50, it’s still amazing to see these guys get so close, even if they don’t take away the final trophy. I’m sure in France, older French men were cheering for Lance this year, even if he had to pop little blue pills to make it to the finish.Alberto Contador - Tour de France 2009
