At the starting line of stage 19, Mr. Santini, owner of the company the manufactures the Maglia Rosa, introduced himself to Contador for the first time. He said, "I am pleased and honored that you are representing Santini in the Pink Jersey.  I would be happy to give you some extra jerseys for friends and family."  Contador took him up on his offer--the next day, Saxo's team manager called Santini with a request for 30 Maglia Rosas.
