What happened to Zabriskie?

Just noticed this in the Stage 1 results:

184 David Zabriskie (USA) Team CSC 2.27

Also caught behind the peloton were Cavendish, Herve, Vansevenant, and Lancaster, as well as the breakaway riders Auge and Kuchynski.

update according to VeloNews, "Just a handful of seconds before Cavendish, US TT champ Dave Zabriskie (CSC) crossed the finish line in 184th, 2'27" back as the American dropped off the pace in the final kilometres after his hard tempo work on the front today for his teammate Cancellara."

update 2: "To set the record straight - I am not here for the GC," Zabriskie told VeloNews. "I don't know why people haven't realized that. If I soft pedal for the last few kilometers to save my legs to help Carlos Sastre later in the mountains, that's because I am here to work for the team...I am tranquilo. I wish everyone else would relax a little bit.

What happened, indeed. His poor placing really killed him in the overall standings, too.
