You gotta defeat whats at the end of the drama and come out on top smelling like a rose. If LA would of won the Tour with two weeks left, then OLN and many others would make less money. People like being on the edge of their seats. Drama in sports sells, like sex/music sells. Face it, LA is not only saving himself during the first half of the Tour, but he is selling tickets. Making others money and putting the postal team on the map forever!

Just an observation.

Peace out ;)

I think he has been saving himself, but not for the drama. Why blow up early in the race if you don't need to? He hasn't needed to. Now I think he'll go crazy in the mountains.
Also, now it came out yesterday that he had a mild intestinal bug at the first few days of the race. That must have played a factor in his perfomance.
