as for froome. . . . i am not a fan but i still would take him any day over wiggins as at least he attacks
Seriously is there someone who likes Wiggins in this forum? lol

Anyway I hope for him he doesn't become the next poulidor/ullrich/Schleck but it seems to go that way. Already 2 times 2nd and now Contador is back.

Should be interesting to see.

They will be battling out for the right to be second to Alberto

I also saw that interview on ITV, maybe it is on Eurosport as well....

Froome really had an opportunity to have a go at Contador and rightfully so many would say, after all it must have been frustrating to be ganged up against like that... but he instead gave credit where credit was due and admitted he was at fault for falling into the trap rather than the other way round... He seems like twice the man Wiggins will ever be..

Why it took you so long to see that? Sky, Uran is not a donkey, he is a freaking olympic silver medalist

GIlbert when asked today who he thinks will win the Vuelta said that Froome is a very good friend and he wants Froome to win but thinks the 3 spaniards will team up on him.

And we have already seen Froome close to Vino.

Is Froome in that Vino Evans Gilbert Hincapie etc circle

Valverde said today/yesterday that Froome didn't look that great. Fading sooner than I thought...
