Froome & SKY will have here work cut out for them in the next few days.I expect lots of attacks from Astana , Contador & Quintana
Thomas is in top form so should be last rider . Konig has been keeping his powder dry and will no doubt be up there as well for Froome every day . Very strong team so far but I imagine the others will take them on, starting tomorrow. I expect Quintana will be very strong

Poels has been pulling too, I think Sky have spread the workload across the team well. I wouldn't dare to make a prediction about the order of their train right now. Kennaugh and Poels were very good at the Dauphiné, but seem to have been working quite a bit. Porte and König are still a bit of an unknown, they ought to go well on the climbs that are coming up though. Thomas certainly looks to be Froome's main helper though.
 
Porte reckons he does not feel as good as he did going into the Giro which is understandable. I guess we will soon see. Sky have looked good so far compared to their dreadful Giro team performance but Saxo was bad as well in the Giro. Thomas does look good so far. There is always one GC rider that does not handle the rest day, I wonder who it will be this time ? The next stage should provide more answers about Nibali and Contador I think.

The worst moments are from 2013, where Porte always wheeled in Contador and everybody else, just for Froome to go nuclear seconds later. It was so depressing to see a dom netrualise the big boys attacks. It shouldn't be like that, and hopefully it will not.

And I think the Poels/Porte/Thomas/Konig train will depend on the day, but dont underestimate G. Thomas. He was very good on that steep climb in Tour de Suisse.
 
Question will always be asked of him so he should just attack every mountain stage like jay z said in hard knock life ... I'm tight grill when my situation ain't improvin
I'm tryin to murder everything movin, feel me?!
 
They already are hedging themselves with Sky with the possible stolen data of Froome.

"If the data is not placed in the right context, it can be twisted to fit a certain way of thinking. This could also be because Froome oval gears use on his bicycle. Certain weather conditions are not included in the data.'' And even more strange is that Brailsford immediately put up a defence of doping accusations,

Absolutely insane. Obviously the best climber in the world, and the best in many years. Who has ever annihilated a quality field like that before?

Walking a fine line there. There's a whole forum for "doping" talk.

Chris Froome has (several) threads in the clinic...

Doping talk here will most likely result in a vacation...

Cheers

What a great day. Great racing. Great negative reactions here on the forum. The best part is bathing in the tears of the contador fanclub who refused to acknowledge the fact that their godking hasnt won the tour in a long long time.
Yea, that loser has only won 7 GTs. Froome is about to win... his second.

Too bad you can't enjoy Froome's win without denigrating a great, great stage racer like Contador.

Oh and the chances of Froome ever having 7 GT wins is exactly 0.
 
froome is anyway a great hard worker no matter how some folks dislike him. this obviously makes him even stronger. hats off... the only bad thing is today he destroyed a winning intrigue.

I didnt even like Froome but now Im gonna get his face tattood on one butt cheek and ritchie on the other. AC fanbois drove me to this insanity with their claims of a Double if not Triple for AC this year when he hasnt won the Tour in such an extremely long time.

The guy currently holds two GT titles. Not bad for such a loser is it?

Everyone who knows anything about racing knew it was a huge long shot to win the Giro and TDF. He should be congratulated for even trying.

Froome had a great, great ride and he looks invincible. Hats off to him (see how different that is from you?). They all work harder than any of us can imagine.
