    EPM Skewers Down?

    In the one or two minutes of watchable video from the US Pro Challenge, I noticed an EPM rider with his rear skewer pointed down during stage 1. Didn't think much of it until I saw an EPM rider (Beltran maybe) with his front skewer pointed straight down on the climb up Independence Pass during stage 2. Anyone have any idea why they would position their skewers that way?
