They know that they can not beat him. They know that they may not have a "ride" come the end of the season. Why piss Lance off, he may want you for a team mate next year.

Just a though.
maybe because they will have no ride?cyclopathic

face it they need to sell themselves, how many riders Postal would need? ;)

My point being, and I am not sure if you are already aware, Kelme is supposed to fold after the season.
That's no way to get a contract!!JBergland

I can't think of a better way to impress someone than to show them you can RIDE!! Do you really believe that USPS (or any other Pro team) would NOT hire someone they wanted to add simply because they followed some team orders?? Want a contract for next year?? You need to win stages, be in as many breaks as possible, and show you can ride aggressively!!

They would absolutely not hire someone who didn't play "fair" and cost LA the GC win. Riding hard is one thing, teaming up to hold him back, which I think has been the topic du jour, is quite another. I really don't think that will happen! That's just what cycling needs right now is more controversy.
yes with Postalcyclopathic
