The odds that Sky will claim it happened to try and manufacture fake sympathy, are significantly higher than the chances of it actually happening.


Jiffy bags filled with urine? Lovely


colostomy bags > jiffy bags.

cant wait for the 2017 grenades tossed at LRP


Is LRP specially wearing a Sky uniform at the TDF ?

Nothing indicative whatsoever of Froome being a supposed doper in Today's Volta a Catalunya stage. He was drifting on and of the group with Valverde and Contador on the final climb struggling to hold the wheel with his high cadence style of climbing. Could not go with Valverde. He is clearly not in his best form yet.

He, Bala and Contie were all running some pretty suspect numbers. It will be an interesting year!

Now their reputation is in ruins they might as well take the piss. Nothing is going to happen, is it? Piti still maturing like a fine cheese, I see!

Froome's still getting in shape - wait until he starts dehydrating, then he'll really motor (sic).
Kirby, the reason the mute button was invented! :)

I'm betting on this guy to pull 24gigawatts in the Alps this year and lay waste to Froomey.

Saw it too ... what was that? :confused: Thought they were off home early - watched on mute so don't know if it was commentated on.

It was just the frame too, they had removed the wheels. Why not put it on the roof of the car? :confused: :confused:

Froome needs to turn off the power meter and do an extra four hours per training per day with no coffee stops like Contador does.

He needs to add a few more watts to his motor... have the feeling this just isn't his year in the Tour.

He could really have used the steroids this year.
I did see the video on Eurosport of Sky putting frame into the car. The commentators mentioned it may have come from being tested for motor

I tuned in late, and this was almost the first thing I saw. I think it was just before Herrada set off, if anybody has it on DVR, so around 14:35CET. I thought they said it had been in for X-Ray, but as it was Kirby talking, I wasn't really listening closely.

Kirby was talking made-up nonsense as usual . It was simply Froome's road bike being carried by Ivan Millan (Sky mechanic) from the mechanics truck where it was stored without wheels and handing it to Thomas Kousgaard along with a pair of training wheels who put it into a team car, which i'd imagine given Froome had finished the TT was simply taking him back to the hotel after his warm-down.

Very useful to have a bike when you are doing some recon of TDF stage after Romandie.
