Leipheimer: Still Rabobank's GC man

VeloNews | A conversation with Levi Leipheimer

VeloNews has an interview with Levi Leipheimer, 8th in the 2002 Tour before crashing out in the big Stage 1 pileup last year.

"I'm still the sole GC rider, but we have numerous stage winners, Dekker, Boogerd, Rasmussen, Hunter, Freire, we've got a very good team. Every person can get a result, win a stage and we've always done well in the team time trial."

Leipheimer likes his chances in the uphill time trial, and echoes Lance Armstrong's criticism of the Tour's new rule limiting rider time losses in the team time trial (TTT):

"That rule is kind of stupid. If you can lose six minutes riding at 90 percent, you might as well go 90 percent. It's a big difference riding a time trial at 100 percent. Then they just shouldn't have a TTT if they're discerning in that way."
