Froome's worst crime is beating the puppy eyed guy
Contador wouldn't have won the 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 TDFs anyway. With or without Froome.

But yeah, CN was Contador central at one point. His biggest fans usually don't like it that Froome has a better TDF palmares. A way better one, if you include stage wins.

But of course Froome had far better team support. Than anyone. Froome would have lost the 2015 Tour to Quintana IMO if he didn't have that.

It's the politics of the sport. Follow the money trail. Without the clenbuterol affair, Contador would have won many more Tours ;)

Stop pretending you have a life, your life is constantly come here to mock froome, you have a lot of time to read my statement lazy "kid" :tearsofjoy:
You can all continue here to mock froome, it doesn't matter, he is still gonna win 5 millions per year, and he will still have a better palmares than your pistolero without bullets since 2011, no beefs no more tours :tearsofjoy:
The victories of froome still hurt so many people.

take a breath now, everything will be alright. cheers
 
Take the top 100 ranked cyclists and give them Froome's background and I don't think any more than two would make it to the World Tour. It's a lot easier to make it to the top if you come from a cycling background in a cycling country. The most extraordinary part of Froome's story is that he ever got to the Tour de France in the first place.
