The Peloton

Arch-rivals Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador took a break yesterday from the grueling climbing and descending of the Swiss Pyrenees by taking advantage of an extended flat spot to drop back into the peloton and play a game of cards.

After exchanging the lead several times Armstrong nodded to Contador signaling him to drop back into the pack where he pulled out a deck of cards from his jersey and flashed them to Contador who surprised the American by calling out for a game of Texas Hold'em.

Contador who boasts one of the best prepared teams in the race quickly pulled out a card table, folded it open and the two set to it, all the while keeping pace with the other riders.

Armstrong took the lead and drew a deuce and a queen. Contador, who is known to be a gambler, drew a pair of threes, quickly putting himself in an advantage over Armstrong. The flop was a deuce, seven amd a five giving some hope to the Armstrong camp. Nothing came from the turn however and American hopes were dashed when the river card turned up a three giving Contador bragging rights for a hands down victory.

Like a true champion Armstrong congratulated Contador for his win and invited the plucky Spaniard to linger with him over a leisurely lunch of local Gruyere cheese and a cheery Gewurztraminer.

Satisfied with their game and refreshed from their repast the two riders sped off from the peloton and jointed the leaders for the dash home while the crowd gasped.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
