What :D Nobody even knew Froome when Alberto tested positive :D I don't forgive him, he shouldn't have done it but hey that's cycling.

What you don't understand is that many cycling fans accept that riders may be doping.

They simply don't want to put up with the fact that a stronger rider hit the scene and strongly imply how it is unfair, jokey and ridiculous. Hypocrisy is in this. At least I'm glad Froome prepared part of people for such a scale of domination earlier in the season otherwise the forum would have been collapsed.

What do we observe? Nothing radically new. Contador is approximately at his Vuelta level, equal to Alex and a bit stronger than Rodriguez on the climbs. We just see what fresh Froome is capable of.


Airstream wtf. No Alberto is not at his vuelta level. That's pure BS.

Despite this, I still regard people who attack Froome but follow Contador as hypocrites for following him considering his past.


If you're saying Alberto only has a lot of fans because he's the underdog now, I'm going to call BS on that.

Fact: Alberto had lots and lots of fans before he tested positive.
Fact: Alberto had lots and lots of fans after he tested positive.
Fact: Alberto had lots and lots of fans after he got banned.

He is the underdog right now and that has certainly made him even more popular though.

it was the veulta for me.

plus, he didnt repudiate that he ate beef, and took whatever ban was given to him in his own stride.

Why do these DSs think that isolating Froome is the first step. If Froome is isolated, then Movistar will ride for him.

I just hope tht AC does one of his long range attacks

I hope Contador tests him at Ventoux. Gotta get Froome in the red to win.

It really depends on wether Saxo and Movistar will ride against eachother or against Froome

Froome still needs to get his instructions from the radio to decide whether he should follow an attack or ride tempo to neutralize the attack.

I haven't actually seen froome respond successfully to multiple attacks like the way AC used to do.

I think surprise is the key to beat froome. Thats the only reason AC will dominate froome.

I think the attacks will have to come from Roman. Alberto is not strong enough. But Roman's final placing is important for the team. Dillemma.

I am also afraid if Saxo attack, Movistar will chase to secure Valverde's second place. Belkin will be happy with two top 10. It'll have to come from saxo. I just hope they're strong enough but I doubt it.

Being vulnerable like a kid and at the same time writing 'he's nothing compared to Alberto' is an explosive mixture.

Okay after reading thijs zonneveld's column I am sure movistar will chase saxo. He basically confirms Alejandro and Alberto hate each other and Alejandro is only worried about beating Alberto.

Tinkov went full r***** on twitter yesterday. Sitting in his Toscana villa and basically bashing everything he could tinkov. One of my favourites:
