Looks like he was climbing with an 03 Project One ( 5900 ).

Doesn't say much for the new Madone does it?

Hmmmm

Trek built 3 Madone bikes for Lance. He wrecked one in the Dauphine. The other he used in L-B-L and it had some issues with descending fast. All 3 frames were $40,000 custom frames to be approveedd by Lance. He likes them however, they are going into production next month. Next year or this fall you should see him and Heras on the Madone all the time. On the other hand he also road the Madone already this Tour i the Alps. Trek is deciding right now whether to continue the 5900 SL production. In case they do I think Lance needed and probably wanted to ride it as well, since its a proven frame. Lance has a training Madone for the 3 rd one built.
