suck it up Froome haters lol
I think most "Froome haters" find this hillarious tbh. It's so funny to see Froome go full genius against minor opposition
Yeah Froome is good but the gaps yesterday and today were minor against guys like TVG, rui costa... really nothing "Alien" at all, it's just his style over the bike that makes people think he is putting in monstrous performance but that was not the case.
Exactly what I was about to write, there's nothing alien in putting 18s on Rui Costa (with all the respect).

Meanwhile Rui Costa gets another podium and furthemore confirms himself as one of the best 1 week stage racers around. He didn't win like in Suisse but still a very respectable show

Now I remember why I don't normally watch races with Froome in them. Not only is he stupendously boring because of his alien-ness and I am left with an unshakable sense of disgust every time I see him show off his superiority, but his technique is so painful to watch, itmakes Escartín look like Herrera, which makes it all the more difficult to deal with seeing.
His extraterrestrialness is even worse when you consider he is probably the least efficient pedaller in the bunch.
If he had an even average pedaling style he'd be the new Merckx.
He's already completely beyond any logical boundaries of belief before you consider that, but when you also take that into account, you either give up on the sport, move to the clinic permanently or just laugh your ass off.

I choose to laugh. It's like an episode of Jerry Springer, just point at it and laugh at the idiocy.

Yet, somehow you seems to be fine when Clentador does the same thing...
Do I? Since when?

I find Contador's shows of strength similarly stupid, but with Froome the combination of the ludicrous power with the abysmal technique just makes it all the more cringeworthy.

Grats to Froome, though its not as dominant as in 2013 or the start DL last year
If he was dominant from the start of the Dauphine I would have been worried of his 3rd week Tour performance.
I think that was the initial Sky plan. To shift the preparation by one week and come in top at the end of the Dauphine.

Exactly. Perfectly stated.

Is the skeptics prediction of birdsong #3rd at the Tour starting to look more and more reasonable or what are you referring to?

like during last year's Vuelta. Alberto was Froome, and Froome was TJ. they rode a bit together, then zzzing, Alberto went and won the stages

I am fine with both, although I prefer when Froome wins

Even worse are the people who believe Stemgazer is walking between the raindrops. That crummy little island must have more denial per capita than any other place on the planet.

I don't know about third, but man he's looking strong at the TdS so far.
He'll look like an amateur at Le Tour compared to Poels.

Great ride by Froome. However, we will only know in the Pyrenees how good he really is.

Purito on schedule. Good stage. Yates impressive too!
Purito on schedule for what? He looked like a donkey. That attack lasted about 4 yards,,,rubbish

"unshakable sense of disgust"

I guess Libertine is referring to his riding style?

Yes you can
I agree with ray jay.
 
Regarding the Contador-Froome comparisons, it's one thing to watch American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown and then express some skepticism. It's an entire other thing to watch a former donkey winning the Kentucky Derby.
