Here are the closest tours ever....

1989: 8" Greg Lemond - Laurent Fignon
1968: 38" Jan Janssen - Herman van Springel
1987: 40" Stephen Roche - Pedro Delgado
1977: 48" Bernard Thevenet - Hennie Kuiper
1964: 55" Jacques Anquetil - Raymond Poulidor
1933: 1'01" Georges Speicher - Learco Guerra
1966: 1'07" Lucien Aimar - Jan Janssen
1956: 1'25" Roger Walkowiak - Gilbert Bauvin
1996: 1'41" Bjarne Riis - Jan Ullrich
1985: 1'42" Bernard Hinault - Greg Lemond

So pick the time gap at the end of this tour. And optionally, in whose favor.
I predict: 42 sec. LA over Ullrich nmPdxMark
