    Did Trek bail on the TdF?

    The last few years its been all Trek in July when the TdF is going on. Haven't heard much from them on the Versus broadcasts this year though. Just checked their website and there isn't any mention of the TdF and it looks like they are focusing on the Tour of Austria right now. Huh?

    WTF? How can a company go from full bore into the tour, then abandon it?

    They are running ads but Astana was not invited, so no Treks at the tour.

    Why no Astana? I had thought Levi might be one of the favorites and actually wondered why I hadn't heard his name at all.

    You can't bail on the Tour de France if you weren't invited in the first place.

    I saw a Trek ad with Lance in it on Versus. Also noticed Saab has lightened up on their threepeat ad.
