Why would the winner go looking to shake hands with second place?...class, acknowledgment of a good battle, any number of reasons...typical of the European Neanderthal to refuse though, I'd expect nothing less from one of our Continental cousins.
Froome was brought up well with manners and good schooling, Dumoulin was probably brought up by the family dog.
lol WOW! :)

I get all that. And the German hygienics are outliers. But I think your last paragraph hits the point: it’s not going to discontinue even if some fanbase is disgruntled. They can be remodeled.

It will all be better next time. Lots of clinic posters in that vein.
Well, the thing is, the hit won't be felt by the Tour which is where it needs to be hit most. ASO would just transfer some funds over and let one of their lesser races take the hit. Nobody's going to miss if the Tour of Oman goes down to 5 days or something. They've already let the Critérium International die and California's lost a day, so other events could be sacrificed. Any money some of the women's ones would go first. If Froome and/or Sky do fall and the current vogue for cycling in the UK takes a hit, they may pull the plug on Yorkshire or reduce it down, whereas at the moment the crowds make for some of the most positive coverage all year - but either way, I'm sure the Tour will be just fine.
Agreed, the corporate side of the Tour is huge. When CSC were in cycling we used to arrange huge corporate tours with all of their best clients. Many didn’t care much for cycling but the scenery, the food and all that goes with the race is a lot of fun for the participants. If Froome wins or loses the Tour there is an entire machinery that doesn’t really care.

So it’s a marginal UK hit at this point. And he’s fungible. But the sport purists have a point.

I’m sure you’re right...all the GT wins mean zilch; all he ever wanted from this sport was a handshake and selfie with the best placed losers :D

The only reason you support Froome is because he's from the same country as you.

His victories will all be taken away eventually anyway. It all means nothing. When all is said and done Froome will be a zero time GT winner and despised by everyone. He'll probably end up like Pantani, besides the being loved part that is.

You hope he ends up that way. I can't see it, he might lose 1 or 2 GTs but not all of them. Anyway dream on ;)

Or I know something you don't. ;)

Remember, I was once banned here for congratulating Nibali on his second Vuelta win before news of Froome's AAF broke out. :)

In saying that, how many days has Froome spent in the UK in his entire life? He currently is a tax exile of Monoco :cool:

He has a British passport. His mother was British. He was brought up in a colonial British environment that has little to do with Britain. He's about as British as any South African with an Anglo surname.
Snakes, bunnies, schisto and all! That's as British as tea.

He is as British as David Walsh. In fact I’m more British than Froome :cool:

Ex pro’s. Bloggers. Youtubers. Fringe online journalists....are you struggling to stay relevant? Got a book to plug? Advertisers and sponsors demanding more hits?...Then why not give an interview, tweet or blog about Froome doping.
No proof or new things to say required, just liberally repeat the words Froome, doping, Sky, transparency and hipocrisy.

There’s an audience waiting to cheer and retweet’s your every word :cool:

Funny reading the last few pages.

Earlier when someone pointed at a particular fact/event/statement damaging for team Froome then it was always; "it's more complicated than that, have to look at all the facts etc etc"

Now when Libertine performs such a detailed summary and deeply damning post it's;

"Too long to read"

#Havingitbothways eh???

I'm Scottish, not Kenyan
 
Does anyone of regular thread posters admit the probability of froome really having genetic predisposition and will to be a great champion? Otherwise we are all just agreed that he is the biggest fraud in the history of the sport, an eternal joke and a rider whose physical cealing was zigzagging on the slopes of Santuario di San Luca. :D
