I think with Froome, it's time to give up on him winning anything again. So, I've started to play "Better or Worse" or "Higher or Lower" for each race that he does. There are two ways to play:
1) If it's a stage race, pick another non-top tier rider and decide if Froome will be better or worse than them on each stage.
2) Just guess if Froome will finish in a higher or lower position than the previous stage.
Not into the startlist for D T ,😥

Or he could do a Kopecky and start participating in the junior races to try and get a win.

Fun fact: Dan Martin's father once entered a junior race in New Zealand when he was 44. He raced against young Wesley Sulzberger and Sam Bewley and finished last in GC.

This story is 100% true according to PCS

What happened to Chris Froome? (In Spanish, use a translator)

"Israel signed a cyclist very much to less, to such an extent that it was hard to find him in the rankings. In 2023, without having news of a future that will have to be resolved because the British ends contract with the Israeli team, the calendar of the former champion gives the feeling of being a vacation plan by a travel agency that the program of a cycling star that has won four titles in the Tour de France. Or isn't it? If we look at it with magnifying glass, Australia, Rwanda, Switzerland or the Czech Republic have been the countries where Froome has looked dorsal."
