Plus it made more sense for him to ride for Froome after he lost 90 odd seconds on the first stage. Porte also rode well for Froome and did his job well as usual.

Indeed, none of the guys who has been in the entire Mallorca-camp has performed at all yet (Froome, G and Henao were only there for a short time).

So you would find it noble for Sir BMW to go back on his
pledge to support Froome in this year's Tour? Interesting.
Very interesting how some define 'noble'.

“Hello, Brad,” VeloNews greeted him. “Good to see you,” he replied. After a second passed, he turned around and said, “It’s Sir Brad.”

What an arrogant man. I wonder how his teammates cope with his ego.
