I was riding the course backwards trying to keep track of the guys and I found Carlos trying to get into the car. It was fortunate i got there; if he would’ve got in a car without turning in his number he would’ve lost the green jersey. I gave him a jacket and told him, “Hey, you gotta do another lap.” He was upset. It was horrible, but he got the green and he keeps that forever.—Tad Hamilton, Director Sportif of Team Exergy
