agreed. The fact that Froome finally won 1 race does won't have any impact on whether there are more wins for him on the road. For all we know, the dude goes to bed every night blessing he got that one and at least he is no longer win less any longer

Why. For his switch of allegiances from Andy now that he may not be a player? Or the switch x 2 to Sky and his new guy Froome in his desperation for anyone to match Contador? Or both maybe?

He gets a lot of abuse and still doesn't shy away from giving his opinion, I can respect that.

The talk is not about that. The thing is Contador and Froome chances are evaluated approximately equally today and it is fair. The guy who lauched the thread sincerely wonders how the hell anyone can thing that someone is close to Contador. So I'm entitled to surprise.

Very brave expectation.
