So for the nearly the whole of the penultimate and final climbs Ligget was babbling on about how Leopard-Trek had accomplished nothing but destroying its own team. Even prior to Frank's final and successful attack, it was clear that 1) neither AC nor CE had any troops left and 2) AC was in dire straights. CE is used to having no one to help in the mountains, it's one of the reasons he never wins. AC, on the other hand, isn't used to being dropped. It could be his knee or it could be that his team is terrifically weak. The Brothers Schleck, on the other hand, have a very strong team and between them they represent the most likely #1 and #2 in this years Tour.
