Well, yeah. But we've watched Cadel in the Tour before and we know how he rides. This is Christian's first Tour as a leader, so he's gone from having no outside pressure or expectations to being a (way outside) contender for a podium spot. And he's American. And he doesn't have that weird butt-chin. Or talk in a voice that only gay dogs can hear.

They've got kind of a "Children of the Corn" vibe to them. Especially Andy.
This post is USELESS without pictures or a screen-capture, at least.
