Just sayin'.
That won't stop him from getting the same scepto-treatment around here.
An outstanding prospect. Very good when the road turns uphill.
Saw him drop all and sundry as an 18 YO.

Like Bruyneel said to Vaughters when he was joining CA: “Good luck with your hematocrit getting a decent contract – only responders get paid the big amounts”.

Froome is a responder.

I don't know.

Sure, he finished 10th in Aosta, but was over 20 minutes behind.

Actually Froome may benefit from spending his childhood living at altitude, which would probably make hin a non responder, at least this is what we here from Kenyan athletes

I remember Henry Rono, used to be an incredible runner (pre EPO days), what set him apart was as that as someone who lived at altitude had incredible recovery powers, he would run a 10k with surges, which when followed really screwed up his rivals

Its difficult to know in this place. And if he isn't, someone will soon enough. I'm wondering if there's a hidden meaning to the target on Wiggins' kit

His suit was sharp last night, and so was his banter. Good lad

Is the target not just for female white van drivers to aim at?
