It's customary for the peloton to wait for the yellow jersey if he falls. This isn't just done for Armstrong, but whoever holds the yellow jersey. So, learn the facts before you start spouting nonsense that you heard on sports talk radio.

As for his victories being 'given to him' I seriously doubt that anyone of the people on the other teams would say, "hey, I'll just let this guy win". No way, Ullrich has been working for 5, now 6, years to beat him and hasn't been able to; Armstrong is the most dominant Tour de France rider, if not ever, then definately of this generation. (Not the best bike rider ever, that obviously is Eddy Merckx).

he wasn't wearing the yellow jersey at the time they did that.

hey you don't know me so don't judge. me I've been following cycling since I was little. I do it myself, so don't say I'm talking nonsense here. I ain't judging you, so I'd like it if you'd do the same. And I don't listen to the radio, I actually see it live, thank you very much.

oh, then you know that when Ullrich fell, Lance stopped the peloton and waited for Ullrich to get up. So it's not like they only did it for Lance; it's not only the yellow jersey, but any of hte competitors.

Was watching this today and it was worth it just for the crashes, the cyclist who did a sumersault into a fence in this one carried on and got the dotted jersey and red number for most active cyclist, no wonder pulling a stung like this.

Oh and French drivers, lets not mention thatsmile
