Wiggins is a bit of a dimmo, isn't he. Of course it's about the team winning. That is how it should be. I bet Brailsford regrets not releasing Froome from his least on that mountain in 2012.

He made that mistake in 2011.

The interview I saw he p1ssed himself laughing.

When it comes to Wiggins and Brailsford, it's probably one of those situations where it wasn't a battle between good and evil ;)

Brailsford now blaming the "reactions" to Froome / Sky on French racism! He doesn't know when to stop, does he....

Brailsford has had another go at the French!!

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/brailsford-blames-tour-de-france-roadside-reactions-on-a-french-cultural-thing/

It seems like unless you dance to his tune he just can't accept it. He must be living in a sheltered bubble where I honestly don't think he gets the anger of many withing the cycling world. Every time he opens his mouth he just end up making things worse.

LOL. Sir Dave is unable to resist kicking the hornets' nest. I would say he has not reduced the likelihood of adverse fan reactions to his boys in week 3 of the Tour.

The press, social media (oops!), Hinault, etc. .. all did their part to whip (some) French fans into a frenzy.

It’s a sporting event, FFS ... and Sky riders are having piss thrown at them. For what???

Dave just calling it as he sees it. Some French fans could do a lot better; Italian fans did.

“Passionate French Fans” is just a euphemism (and smokescreen) for .... over zealous, sick behaviour.

Good for Brailsford for sticking up for his team.

Brailsfraud should be happy we’re not throwing anything else than piss at his band of cheaters. And no, its hardly only french who are racking up against them on the road.

I don't have much time for Brailsford who can be pompous and arrogant at times,but on this occasion he is stating the obvious - Sky receive a generous welcome in the Giro and the Vuelta, compared to the TDF - Sometimes the truth hurts.

You do know that Team Sky was investigated by it's own British govt. You do know this don't you? They didn't come out of it with flying colours ether. No wonder the French don't want them riding their big event. It's just more Denial Denial Denial with Brailsford. It's their own faults. No one elses.

Who likes arrogant teams and athletes?

Maybe - maybe - it has something to do with Sky already killing the TdF since 2012 while only last year they copied there French recipe in Spain and only this year in Italy? Just a rough guess, though.

Personally I like it when the crowd shares it's opinion. It's the crowd why this is a professional sport in the first place. Sure you can respond to that with even more arrogance, but likely the crowd will have an answer to that as well...

It does seem a bit counter-productive for SDB to incite an already antagonistic crowd with nationalistic insults, overshadowing his better point that spectators should be more well behaved.

Agreed; call out people for spitting (disgusting and inexcusable behaviour) and throwing things at riders and he'll probably get lots of support...but focusing on the nationalism angle does just seem designed to antagonise.

Added to the French Mayor comments...once may be careless, twice is deliberate...

I think Dave is still upset about being arrested for doping by the French police all those years ago.

Disagree.

Frustration-induced hasty comment ... yes. On both occasions. Seeing what is at stake, forgivable.
