Andy Schleck does not look like he is trying in the Critérium du Dauphiné. I think there is a big problm between himself and Bruyneel . Unless it is some crazy plan to take the pressure off for the tour, I cannot see him getting in the top ten. He does seem to come over like a spoilt child.

I guess if he knows he can't win and his season is all but a loss, why bother working to give his team (and basically his manager that he doesn't like/get along with) World Tour points?

I liked the Schlecks, but if they are truly giving up on RSNT, I fear they'll have a hard time finding work in the future. In a sport where contracts rarely extend beyond 3 years, and sponsors are hard to come by and quick to bail... They might be seen as more of a liability than an asset.

I'd rather have a Jens Voight, Johnny Hoogerland, or other selfless workhorse combined with a Horner, Leipheimer, or other smart lower profile all arounder on my team...
