Maybe he's borrowed Simon Gerrans' Cervelo

All Cervelo's non-TT frames have top tubes which slope more than that, don't they?
The bike has SRAM hoods. The seat stays meet the seat tube below the level of the top tube, like a lot of Trek frames. I'd guess it is still a Trek.
two wheels good; four wheels bad

In fact is that 2010 Force on it? There are white flashes on the brake levers.

Lance is riding sram this year yes?

Yes. He had already made a financial investment in SRAM before his comeback too, I believe.

Levi and Lance were riding these black Treks in the Nevada City Classic. I think I was wrong and they have SRAM Red, not Force.

Looking at the shape of the headtube, I'd guess it's a Prototype Trek.
have a look at www.velodramatic.com for much, much better pics........

Thanks for the link. Oh, and I thought I read that Nike were getting out of the cycle clothing business?

Or maybe because Lance is still one of their sponsored athletes Nike are running him off some kit cos they can't really afford to have him riding around in someone else's kit – in which case they might as well do the whole team http://www.astana-cyclingteam.com/Sponsors.html#gpm1_15

I thought nike were concentrating on throwing their money at overweight footballers and chavs with knives...nice to see they still like sport.
