It may also have something to do with letting Andy Schleck take a clean shot. If Cancellara was at Amstel, either he would be riding for himself, hurting Schleck or riding for Schleck, which he'll have plenty of opportunity to do at the TdF.
Besides, he doesn't really have a shot at the TdF, but may have a shot at the ToC. Winning progressively bigger multiday races may be the next notch he wants on his belt.
