He came out about mid-tour and said, effectively, that he was having a hard time hacking it in the Tour field day-in and day-out, and that he was going to return to the US, where he felt he could have a more successful career.
because he hated itmr_spin

He was miserable racing in Europe and even more miserable riding the Tour. He got to the point where he couldn't take it anymore. He didn't just quit the race, he quit his team, Credit Agricole. I'm sure he'll find another team next year that races more domestically, like Saturn or Prime Alliance.
