This was a downright lie - he was directly behind Schleck when the chain came off - Schleck was practically at a standstill when he went past him. Also the team radio would have been keeping him constantly updated after that as well.
I have always thought that Contador was a decent bloke up until this. I mean, why lie about it?
he has released a video apology...belatedly realised not the best thing he has done.
As you say it's the stupid lies( I was attcking, I didn't know he had a mechanical) that make him lok daft.
Contador may well have pulled Schleck back, but to say he was attcking at that moment is nonsense.
