Can you imagine if Froome was acting and had been browsing this forum under the alias @LaFlorecita for years pretending to be a Contador fan. People's heads would explode. I totally don't need to refill my popcorn stock for the summer cause it's not gonna happen.Guys, can you imagine if Froome is realy acting and comes to Tour smashing everybody. People's head would explode. I need to refill my popcorn stock for summer.
Seriously, there is "not as good as he used to be" and there is this. You don't perform this way for one and a half years after coming back from a horrible injury and then find your old shape again out of nowhere. It's not gonna happen and people shouldn't pretend it will. And there is nothing shameful about that btw. He returned. He managed to ride gt's again after a life threatening injury and that's incredible. He'll never win a gt again, so what? He has been the dominant gt force for a decade, a legend of cycling and nobody will ever take that away from him (hopefully). He can retire in grace.
Although actually he can keep riding, laughing his ass off that someone pays him 5 million dollars for it. Let's be real, that is the genuinely legendary part.
