Froome has been dieting :D

“Unfortunately, when you see the physiology of certain riders who are going to start this year’s Tour de France, you have to ask yourself questions. There are still doping problems in cycling."

How is it possible to look skinnier than a malnurished african child and still destroy the french climbs every day for 3 weeks?

I think what we are seeing now, is the battle of old doping methods vs. new doping methods. I'm sure Contador has a bloodbag or two waiting for him somewhere, but he looks "normal skinny" not "haven't eaten in two months" skinny...

I never saw a rider look as unhealthy as Froome does. They mostly look very thin, but not like that :eek: :eek: .

You clearly haven't seen the best distance runners in the world. Mo Farah makes Froome look chubby....he can still polish off a 5k with a 50 second lap.
You probably all think he's doping too.
Doping in track and field? Inconceivable!

I bet you would be surprised to find out pro body building is a dopefest.

Comparing a one-off effort, even a 2h marathon, with 3 week stage racing is nonsense. These guys are losing even more weight, as it is impossible to balance energy consumption completely and legally over 21 days.

Yeh, I was thinking it'd make sense to start the race a couple of kilos above optimal race weight (first mountains are still a week away), I was wrong!
