Default Chris Froome Discussion Thread.

I don't think he has a thread yet. He deserves one, I like how he rides.

And he made fun of Wiggins in the tour, how can you not like him for that? lol

He attacks when he can. And not an ***.

Anyway great rider and IMO the guy who is going to be the biggest challenge for Contador in the future GT's.

And he has a cute girlfriend, she doesn't know when to be quiet, still very nice

Rethinking about today and yesterday, he pulled yesterday to gap Uran (avoiding any doubt about his leadership) and Uran repay him today dropping early.

The second one is, since all the "discussion threads" you see now, started off as appreciation threads until 1 mod changed them for some reason. But plenty like the froome thread escaped his view.

He clearly held back uphill in the Tour.
Now he is unshackled. Great to see. Yet seems Contador is just a shade better and Contador is not peaking yet.

Will be interesting in the Tour next year. I think Froome can actually challenge now. I'm pretty sure Wiggo won't handle the comeback of Contadors tempo changes well...
