I think he should change teams. Belgium's best hope was allowed to fall in a stupid sprint that meant nothing to him. His team was more interested in winning a stage for Greipel. VDB should have been protected all the time. I thought it was ridiculous.
Just my opinion.

the young Ullrich was also working on Telekom's sprinting train, i think it is something all cyclists have to go through, independent of their future potential,
30 ? so then he is not Belgium's best hope, a bit old now, im not familiar with that rider anyway
"allowed to fall " was a bad choice of words on my part...but I feel the Lotto team should have done more to protect him from falling.
Greipel winning a couple of stages is better than VDB finishing between 4th and 10th on GC. I think it is ridiculous that they persevere with VDB and should sack him and build the team around the gorilla.
