Tour de France winner Contador honoured with wrong national anthem![video]

Alas the 2009 Tour-de-almost-Lance came to an end this past weekend and Alberto Contador of Spain ended the final stage into Paris as the winner in the overall classification with Armstrong finishing a more than respectable 3rd.Organisers of the race can hold their heads high at yet another amazing race..except maybe for this epic blunder..on the podium when they announced Alberto Contador from Spain  as the winner and then promptly played the Danish national anthem..good work chaps 🙂 he looks slightly confused then it hits him at about the 1 min mark that something aint right!cringe…

Interesting footnote: the 1904 Tour De France hits an all time low when spectators leave nails in the road,while riders take car trips and even train rides.The first 4 riders are disqualified including one who had been pulled along by car with a wire attached to a cork in his mouth.
