Pretty funny because he was saying all the time "never write off alberto".

Contradicting himself. What an idiot.

It's sad, with every article I read about sky it becomes clearer to me they already know they'll win. Because Froome is just that good.

Isn't it great! It's a new age of clean and predictable cycling! Finally Sky have found a way to take away all the guesswork on who will win the big races and the headaches and arguments that accompany that guesswork. Who wants those headaches and arguments anyway? We really owe it to Sky for doing this for us. They've done us a great service... [color="White"][Sarcasm][/color]

...or...dis-service...

He really isn't; either an idiot or contradicting himself.

It's absolutely normal. Feeling such a power, they should put a psychological pressure on the opponents. On one hand Sky are confident, on the other hand they look up to Contador and see a redoubtable rival in him. That's it.

O my.. our lil' richie already start the smack talk. His confidence is over the moon. (naturally with the results of Dauphine). But, watch out. *like wiggin, smack talk, no cigar*.:D

very well, lil' Richie, if you smack talk, you'd better back it up with your legs!! The tour is getting juicier now with the psychological war.. me like it!:p:p

You should check the latest interview in the froome thread in the clinic. Not necessarily not nice but certainly extremely confident.

Very confident indeed. Thing is, you first have to win a single GT before aiming for a run. But to be honest, I'm really enjoying this pre-Tour talk. I just hope the race can live up to the expectations (and I'm not talking about Sky going 1-2 comfortably).

If they 1 - 2 with Porte and Froome then they could have won the Tour this year,and last, with any of three individuals from a single team. Pointing out the obvious I know, but it still baffles me.

Contador, you need to save the tdf from skyborgs...

If sky do 1-2 at the tour again this year, I will stop following this race until this team disappear.

We need Basso giro '06 to teach Froome a lesson. I never saw a rider this dominant, not even LA. That form was so ****ing ridiculous :cool:

Going 50% :D

I am a big Contador fan, but his form in the Dauphine really left me doubting him.

I also thought Froome was overreaching the limits of his form at exactly the wrong time. I understand the Dauphine is a warm-up race for the Tour, but it's still a few weeks away.

Can he hold this type of form until the third week of the Tour, when he will need it most? We will see.
