Its not quite comparing apples with apples either, Armstrongs '04 time (as an example) was fresh as a daisy on Individual TT, whereas Sastre was after 150kms stage including 2 other HC climbs of about 55mk including climbing. Or something like that...

Even the start point of the Pantani and Armstrong times are disputed, so all the timing claims are a bit dubious...

But in saying that, at least the tt times are an individual effort, other times allow for drafting which would make things alot easier!

Why are we debating this? It wasn't a time trial.

Can't we find something pedantic and petty to argue over. I miss the old days!
