So what exactly do you do when you're the protected leader and next grand tour hope of America's premier cycling team, but you're currently sitting in 12th place and are the 4th(!) best placed rider on your own team?
And the guys in front of you are 35 (Beltran), a 22 year old rookie riding his first GT (Brajkovic), and a classics specialist (Devolder)? And you yourself are 28? Is it time to start concentrating on the Tours of Austria? Discuss.
