Cycling is not popular all to pieces, to my greatest regret, but they are quite knowledgeable.

Barring crashes, echelons and whatnot it is quite likely that the very best and most consistent climbers will finish on top. Froome showed that he was a bit stronger than Nibali and Wiggins in that regard. But that's about it.
Froome exponated something more significant than just beating Nibali and Wiggins. I never saw anyone who worked so much on the front during decisive km's [everyone desperately try to hide in slipstreams to save crumb of energy], going full 'steady' blast, when tempo is maximal. Often guys who win GT's don't work so much. On Peyresourde Froome dropped others as easy as pie. It wasn't his matter, just a coercion. What would have been, if he could have attacked — I shudder to think.
