Spartacus for LBL this year?


Riis thinks Fabian should try to win LBL this year.  Me, I'm not so sure. 

Spartacus looks pretty skinny for this part of the season, especially in his face.  He just sailed away from select groups 50km from the finish in TWO monuments (I'm not really counting Boonen's assistance in Flanders).  It would seem difficult, but not impossible, to keep this form until Liege.  That would be a peak of 21 days.  Personally I think it would be too much to expect Spartcacus to win LBL in another long breakaway---it would be the equivalent of breaking away to win the yellow jersey on stage 1 of the Tour and then extending his lead in the final mountaintop finish.
