I hope that froome rides the worlds as well as the tour. the tough course will suit him more than any other of gbs riders. However he may claim to be tired again if he has the same early season schedule as wiggins had for the tour this year

I hope for Brad that hey won't do this; he'll get Froomed again, but then by the Colombians.


Henao > Brad when it comes to GT's with a lot of serious climbing

Henao getting dropped by Scarponi > Wiggins?

His most impressive performance was Lagunas de Neila, but hard to extrapolate that to GT climbs.

Brads first year at sky was also **** and he was 5 years older. It takes time for swimming to help, especially for an Antioqueno

Ritchie Porte will probably be Froome's first pick to go with him, seeing as they are roommates and race a lot together.

Thing about Froome is that he's not really British and therefore doesn't have the same antipathy to doping as an honest Northern grafter like Brad. He might as well be Australian (the accent), or Italian, with that selfish "win at all costs" even if it's by cheating" attitude. You only had to watch that showboating in the Tour, or read his bird's tweets (what kind of bloke puts up with a WAG like that?) to see where his head is at.
Still, it'll be fun to watch him being plugged by Contador.
