Spanish cyclist Alberto Contador won the 2009 Tour De France for the 2nd time. But the Tour De France people played the Danish anthem when he stepped up to the podium. A Spanish biker has won the Tour De France 4 times in a row. So they should of known what to play, a Danish biker didn't come close to the top ten. Maybe they wanted a change of pace when it came to the music. Songs do get old after a while.
