Edit: Oh, and by the way, Evans is just making up things. In the Bonnette stage Froome finished in the gruppetto at 32 minutes behind the winner, s.t. with other "pretty good" climbers such as two-time lanterne rouge Jimmy Casper and three-time lanterne rouge Wim Vansevenant.

Nice job Squire :) . So Cuddles doesn't pass the fact check. For a while, I thought it was Sherwen talking about Lance, actually ;) .

In pretty sure Evans spoke about the Alpe d' Huez stage, but just got it mixed up.
Regardless, its funny how many saw the great talent coming...

I respect his ability. I don't root for him. But I don't really think this has much to do with that.

Cadel got confused with the stage. Ho hum. He always seemed to have a lot on his mind what with journalists stepping on his bike, his dog, his toes, even the bodyguard probably bothered him. But Cadel was too wary with the media while his old team mate Horner always had something interesting to say. Evans always wanted to be a team leader but with the media presence of a domestique. He seems much happier now.

you hit the nail. couldn't agree more. over the whole career Evans was trying to seem a calm and focused guy, but at the peak of pressure this mask vanished in a flash. :)

with the tour-vuelta double in mind, froome is probably come into this season even more smoothly. top 15 in catalunya top 10 in romandie wouldn't be so bad.

I am not sure he is even doing Romandie. If not, he is taking Tour - Vuelta double very seriously.

His shape should be really good judging by what Thomas showed in Tirreno after the safari.But i don't think he'll show his cards in Catalunya already.
The selfie he took on Paris-Nice was pretty good,I'm surprised nobody posted it.https://twitter.com/chrisfroome/status/840934885384699904
