Wiggins strikes me as normal and even insightful for decent stretches, then invariably shatters the illusion with some idiotic comment or another. That one reads like a "gotta pump British interest in the Tour" kind of comment. Laughable.
Sir Bradley Wiggins on his latest podcast: "Chris Froome, you would have to say this is probably his last opportunity to win a fifth Tour and that new generation is coming through."
I think you'll find that "new generation" came though two years ago at least Brad, but thanks for using the words "opportunity" "Tour" and "Chris Froome" in the same sentence...........We could all use a laugh at this time.
Konig also wasn’t making as much as Froome, was on the team after the injury happened, and Froome had a whole year of non improving before signing and all parties were expecting results. Those results haven’t come, he hasn’t even finished inside the top 20 of anything while Konig did. All he has been is a big name that is there and bringing news from his disappointment like Cav was during those 3 years.Leopold Konig had 8 racing days in 2018 and zero racing days in 2019, but his contract with Bora lasted and was valid until end 2019 as he had signed.
dont worry about Froome contract, we dont even know the details and how long he signed for.
all I want is him keeping racing, whatever the ourcome. even just lining on the start line gets clicks and shouts.
keep going Dawg!
But improved from what? This is the same thing he’s been saying since the return.
Contador taught him his code. Improving sensations = no reason for optimism.
He finished almost 15 minutes behind the stage winner Schmid in the first stage.But improved from what? This is the same thing he’s been saying since the return.
Finishing ahead of a rider is better than finishing behind. It don’t matter if it’s an inch or a mile.He finished almost 15 minutes behind the stage winner Schmid in the first stage.
And only 5 minutes behind Schmid in the second stage.
Today he should finish 5 minutes ahead of Schmid.
Of course Schmid might finish 30 minutes down.
I love you Froome, but you're done! Time to retire and concentrate on all your social media and business ventures.
