Besides, how many TT in the Tour did Cancellara won? Not so much. He rides for an American team, so their tacticks are as much Tour-focussed as the former Rabobank.
True. I don't know what else is there for him to target after the cobbled classics apart from the tour. Perhaps he wants to win another world TT? I mean the races during the second part of the season are either stage races or hilly classics like lombardia. I doubt these are his targets.
by riding the tour, he has nothing to lose.
