When Froome or Gesink attack it also looks like they are having a stroke

This is one of the best saves I've seen - excellent drop technique and then the skid looks like he is giving it some whip

Froome, Gesink and the Schlecks are just the absolute worst shape, too. Tall and skinny means the centre of gravity is so much high than for a stockier guy like Contador or Nibali.

The thing that makes Froome look so weird is his abnormally long arms

Sven Nys, best.

Worst: Mourey lol.


But who is this Froome that so many people are talking about?

Vantournout was pretty bad on that occasion as well, but I think he would still lose regardless of that incident

Thanks. Great reminder.

Another good bit of handling by Gregorio in Paris Nice (at 6:47).

As if I were talking about one particular occasion ...


But well, a board with 15 threads on Bore on page 1 in early February is certainly not a place where I can be understood.
