The sport's credibility requires that Froome does the treble. To put the dirty past behind us.

From the Guardians piece:

Last week Jeremy Whittle, respected author of the classic cycling book Bad Blood, said he had “never seen a collective performance to compare with Sky in La Vuelta - that includes Banesto, Telekom, Mapei, USP” in his 24 years of covering grand tours. And that strength was emphasised on the penultimate stage, up the steepest 24% incline of the Alto de l’Angliru. While the Italian Vincenzo Nibali, who was more rested having missed the Tour, wobbled and then wilted, Froome and his loyal lieutenant Wout Poels made a devastating incline look like a minor inconvenience.


Sky are so cleans they make Mapei look legit!

Entirely different circumstances. And nobody gives Nibali a pass.
