+1 that Levi sat on primarily b/c there's nothing to gain by attacking Sastre, and he might end up pulling Sastre closer to Contador.

Maybe there's a mental angle, but I doubt it matters at the pro level. Me personally, I might go a bit harder to try and drop the guy, which could result in success, or in me blowing up. A good pro like Sastre knows to just ride his tempo.
