Ordinarily, you wait for the other race leaders when they crash.
T-Mobile and US Postal joined together and put some time
into Iban Mayo. I wonder if Lance and Jan are giving Mayo
a little payback for last year when Mayo, Basso, and Zubeldia
sat on his wheel up Luz Ardiden and Mayo went ahead and
took some of the time bonus. That was truly a crummy think
for the Spanish riders to do.
