Wait, I thought it was Ellingworth who was coaching Wiggin's in 2009 whilst at Garmin. So are you saying that even Ellingworth viewed Froome as a bigger GC potential than Wiggin's. Was Wiggins's own coach caught by surprise by his own protege. Something doesn't quite add up here.

What when he was still a Kenyan in 08?

Don't make me laugh.

Chortle. You might be right about Froome. He'll be clean and beaten by a dirty Contador next year.

You can't have it both ways Jimmy. I know Froome does your head in. You just can't explain him. No one can.

Maybe Froome is really British? They don't dope like the Italians and French then come back and become heroes
I don't care how they look on a bike, I only care if they are clean

I found this interesting documentary piece on Wiggins growing up in Maida Vale on youtube.

Sure you do Jimmy. Sure you do. Just want them to be clean. I know you do Jimmy. I know you do. You just want them all to be clean.

He doesn't have the right to be angry, because he knew what the consequences were to stay in cycling AND be successful. So he should have expected all these reactions. Only guilty people get on the defensive the way he does.
That's almost as desperate than some of Hog's silly season guff

He should have never entered pro-cycling on principle?

Only guilty people get angry?

He's a sportsman, not the Dalai Lama

Now, that's a record I'd be proud of.

Hog, you might want to head up to the North of England. Some of Brad's blood may be in the road. You could get a sample and have it checked.
