Don't be ridiculous. He has every right to demand of his team. Any contender for the overall win in the Tour de France has that right I'd say. He is being too nice to his team; but I probably would too not wanting to get them offside. I would be surprised if they weren't putting in every effort though, because after all they're defending yellow; they may never be in that position again in their lives; everything they do now is going to be remembered.
