The decision was fair because it reflects who was the strongest on the road- thats whats important.

Whether the decision would be diferent if it was other rider......noone has a clue and baseless speculation is pointless since it cant be verifies

Yesterday i couldnít post my opinion, but today i will give it.

It was the weirdest thing i have seen, and i undersatand all the parts...

For one side i think is unfair to punish a rider that has the problemas that froome had.

But i agree with those that defed that the time given back, and the no punishment is just beacuse we are talking about froome and sky. If it was a fair decision? Well, i think so, but the problem is that if it was mollema i think the rules would be diferent... And this is the problem... But well, i prefer to see winning who is stronger in the road so...
How about Yates on stage 5? Is he Sky rider?
How about Quintana? He got more bonus seconds than anyone else and he cheated ffs.

Sorry, but those arguments about protecting Froome/Sky are absolutely pathetic.

Pathetic is your lack of respect for an opinion of another person. That´s pathetic dude.

I do respect other people's opinions, but i do not respect irrational defamations. Well, haters gonna hate, but you can at least try it without making things up.

Hater? lol, i´m not a Froome Hater. I like him. I´m not his fan, but i´m not his hater. People have to respect another opinions in live. Sometimes people don´t know how to respect...

I gave my opinion based in what i believe and in many examples that we have in cycling. I really don´t think that if it wasn´t with Froome ( or Contador if he was still there), that the rules would have changed. I know that it was something unusual, and unfair to a rider loosing time because of a stupidity like that, but this was all a mess, and Froome is Froome, because without that name, time would have count... That´s what i believe. And that doen´t make me a hater, sory for you if you belong to those type of people, but i don´t have any rider that a hate, or want bad luck. I want the best to win, even if it isn´t my rider...
