Congratulations to Denis Menchov for winning the most exciting grand tour I ever remember watching. I thought he was done when he went down on the final km of the time trial. I even sort of thought it was just since Di Luca rode such an aggressive race and stuck his neck out on every single stage.
But Vincent Hendriks, the mechanic in the team car who threw the door open at 30 mph, jumped out, grabbed a bike off the roof, and had it in Menchov's hands by the time he got to his feet, is the MVP of the tour. And then to give Denis the push of his life to get back going. Wow.
Menchov is a complete and total badass, not just for racing the way he raced and covering every single attack pretty much single-handedly, but also for jumping right up and losing all of ten seconds in a significant crash. If he ever races like that again, he'll be as much of a badass as his mechanic.
