BroDeal said:Schleck's major problem is a fixation on the Tour.
Off topic: Fully agreed there.
Do some Vuelta's, Giro's and focus on Lombardia and LBL and he would come out with a better palmares.
Only Spaniards and Italians seem to be able to ignore the TdF. In my eyes this TdF fixation severly hurt riders as Boogerd. That one just should have focussed on classics instead of trying to be the climber he never could become. He could have trained more on his sprint which wasn't as bad as he thought. Instead he tried to stay lean and mean for the GT. The result is two stages and a fourth place plus one Classic. Rather underwhelming.
