Monday's Stage 15 of the 2010 Tour de France in the Pyrenees saw defending champ Alberto Contador wrestle the yellow jersey away from then leader Andy Schleck after the Luxembourg native struggled when his bike chain malfunctioned.
Schleck was frustrated that a rider of Contador's prominence and stature would take advantage of a mechanical issue to take over the lead.
But in a video posted on YouTube, Contador responded to Schleck's comments."Maybe I made a mistake," he said. "I’m sorry. I don’t like things like what happened [Monday], I’m not like that, and I hope the relationship that I have with Andy can go back to being as good as it was before this happened.”
But if there was an opportunity for Schleck to make up for the time he lost on Monday—he now trails Contador for the maillot jaune by eight seconds—Tuesday's Stage 16 is it.
A grueling 124-mile ride from Bagneres-de-Luchon to Pau awaits the remaining riders, a route that will take them up four huge climbs, including the infamous Col du Tourmalet.
Early results from Tuesday's stage saw American Lance Armstrong take off in a small breakaway group of riders.
Could the seven-time champion be going hard for that elusive stage win at the 2010 Tour? Stay tuned.
Stage 16 will air live from 6:30 to 11:30 a.m. ET.
