Quite the contrary to journalistic opinion, what he did showed weakness rather than strength. However, there may come moments in the Tour (like in Tirreno-Adriatico] where he will be forced to grapple with his apparent deficiency in bike-handling skills. Van Impe's opinions on the neuroticism of Froome may yet prove prescient.jw1979 said:that acceleration by Froome so he could descend alone would certainly catch my eye if i were contador or another GC hopeful's DS! not because he made it look easy, but that he wanted to descend alone at all. maybe it's just the early-race nerves, and Froome can descend just fine, but taking some risks on a descent to try to split the bunch or let Froome self destruct like Wiggins is worth a shot, yeah?
is Froome typically a good descender?
