Tour Winner Wasn't Riding Campagnolo

Remember the good old days, when Campagnolo-equipped riders stood atop the Tour de France podium year after year after year? Those days are long gone (blame Shimano-using Lance Armstrong for that), and this year brought another non-Campy winner in Alberto Contador.

Campy fans can take some solace in the fact that Contador's Trek used components that at least looked like Campagnolo (and is wasn't ShimaNO). His ride was equipped with SRAM's "Red" gruppo, which features levers that look very much like Campagnolo's but work very differently. More info and photos here.
