I wonder if he picked up that water bottle? No way a domestique could have brought him another after that point.

... according to a report on Yahoo, his mechanic pointed out a broken chainstay when they got the bike into the van.

You don't win a TdF without some luck.

As Armstrong got into his team car, a mechanic showed him that his bike was also in a bad way with the chain stay, which runs between the central cranks and the rear gear mechanism, broken.
Here's the direct link to that storyfracisco

hmmm, I do think that's covered by the warranty nmgtx

Nope, racing and crashing both void the warranty (nm)TJeanloz

I think Lance probably has a different warranty policy on his frames than the rest of the world.

Something like overnight replacement, anywhere in the world, especially if it happens to be July and he's in France!

Good loaner policy, too ...Humma Hah

... if a teammate is handy with your size of bike, that's your loaner and he waits for the team van and a spare.
