Watching Froome ride is an assault on the senses. He looks like he is trying to breed with the bike but when he disappears up the road I suppose it's all in the results. The constant looking down is weird too but of course that has it's purpose as well. When he is riding next to a smooth, stylish rider, the differences are even more pronounced. At the moment "ugly" looks like it might prevail at the Tour unless Contador can get back to his near best.
