Their goal was to have Basso challenge LANCE for the jersey.
Good plan considering his ride last year and what he displayed in the
Giro this year.
Problem is, now how hard do they defend Zabriskie's jersey? If they use
up the team defending it, it makes it harder for them to protect Basso
Zabriskie's got a fat lead over everyone but LANCE.
It's a good problem to have, I suppose.
