Fact or figment of imagination? If I'm not mistaken AK and LA did not chase' date=' it was the other riders like Schlecks, Sastre, Wiggins, Nibali, Evans who tried first to catch AC, LA / AK tried to catch them... [/quote'] You must have started watching late.... Wiggins and them only went with about 3km to go. LA went to the front as soon as Contador jumped. I'm sure he will say he was slowing down the pace or something like that. Then his buddy joined him at the front.
