Just thinking about the departure of the two DS's from Sky, I can't help wondering if Froome might be secretly pleased?
In the 11 Veulta De Jongh sought advice from Sean Yates who insisted on Froome supporting Wiggins. In the 12 Tour, Yates insisted on Froome waiting for Wiggins. Yates and Wiggins were very close, reckoning stages together. Its not yet clear who will fill the DS gaps, but I can't help but wonder if he will suit Froome better.

The team orders came from higher management.

Ep 4 of the Road to Glory series showed Brailsford giving the order during the briefing just before Stage 17. Yates was on the radio during the race making sure they stick with the plan.
