Slow peloton, less attacks = no doping?

I wrote my "no doping?" question as a tweet during the slow Stage 3. It seems that a common theme to the rider interviews I had been watching for the first several stages was that the Tour was being ridden differently this year, without the same barrage of early stage attacks. Graham Watson seems to have the same theory, adding that the riders may not have figured out what their thresholds are without their... supplements. If it's true, it hasn't made the Tour any less exciting -- minus some slow Stage 3 riding -- but the TV stations may have to revise their schedules for the new pace of the peloton.
