In watching the Tour de France today, and seeing the remarkable move by Frank Schleck with 2km left in the stage, it occured to me if Team Leopard Trek didn't just sandbag Alberto Contador and the entire peloton by spending the last twelve months hyping the rematch between Andy Schleck and Contador, leaving Frank Schleck as the sectret weapon to win the yellow jersey in Paris?
Frank basically crashed out of the race last year just as Andy was poised to take the lead in the race, setting up the epic confrontations between Andy Schleck and Contador in the last week.
Now I'm not so sure that was the race they really wanted to see.
