http://www.biciciclismo.com/cas/site...a.asp?id=52672

Q: There are 100 km time trial, have you worked specifically with this discipline?
A: Yes, something we have worked on, we know that there are better riders than me in the time trial as Wiggins and Evans, but the Tour is 21 days.

There was talk of him having improved his TT during his suspension, but if anything, it's gotten worse.

I believe that had he not crashed out of the 2006 Tour that he could have at minimum made the podium and at best won the overall. He was nearing his peak at that point but unfortunately had to pull out of both the 2005 (knee injury) and 2006 Tours.
