Pez, do you mean that ASO changed the profile of this years tour, so that no team can dominate this race?
No, I mean that Astana's actions are being felt this year as much as last... Not for good reasons, but there are a few other threads going about that.
The tour rout the last couple of years, including this year, have been pretty good.
I mean to say Astana, strictly as it relates to Moreau, were doing nothing wrong in their actions in last years tour. They had three very strong men and they would have been best served pounding the field the way they did, with or without Christoph.
After Christoph beat their team in the dauphine, Astana were probably happy that he cracked so hard, but I think it was indirect result rather than their goal.
In the end, Moreau appears to have come out better for it either way, and hi did ride and attack and entertain last year... If Olny Cadel would ride with that type of heart. But then if he did he may also have had that same type of result...
