that time we'll probably find out what was in it straightaway
Pay back for the perceived slights of 2012. For Sir Brad getting the epic win when 'he should have'. For SBW garnering more of the public affection. For all the **** between respective wives.
But I don't think Froome is the guy for the explicit 'bus-throwing'. I think he is the guy for the snide side-swipe and passive-aggressive undermining of SBW and Brailsford, which probably won't be enough to derail the bus.
If there is any bus-throwing, I think it'll come from someone either more volatile in a kind of semi-impulsive, 'scorched earth' purge of bitterness (e.g SBW or Sutton), or someone significantly more lowly, who may well gain much more than they lose (i.e. minor team-member, slighted rider, soigneur or similar who has seen some 'goings on'.) Or perhaps even from a Dr, who already has a substantial amount of money, and perhaps would relish the notoriety of being at a centre of a media storm.

be stupid tho, too risky. Froome knows he prolly retires with 50million GBP, close to 100million US$ if he plays it right, and holds his cards close to his chest. If he blows things up, he puts everything at risk. Well, atleast a significant proportion of that, he may keep a third or a quarter...
How much of his wealth is determined by Sky staying in the sport for a few more years? Not it all, he could always go where Nibali and Sagan have ended up, on similar big money deals. But if he does not have the protection in Aigle(UCI hq) and Manchester British Cycling hq, it will restrict his potential to get his golden handshake like everyone else has.
Aint the problem that Kennaugh and G have seen the beneficence displayed upon Wigans, Froome, and other knights, on Cav... and they are queuing up for their payday, like an EPL footballer, they want their GBP so they can afford a luxury pad in London.
You Froome of Dawginess
All serpent words and smirky

Also, for the Brits- does Froome have endorsement deals/advertising? I know Wiggo has had lots of deals for all kinds of things, but don't really have the impression of seeing Froome in ads for products. I don't read the bike mags like I used to though, so very well could have missed those things.
Jiffy bags filled with urine? Lovely
