Yeah, I know they can, but they can also not be. It depends on how it goes exactly. I asked because it's not been mentioned or hinted at really, so I was wondering whether it was even worse than the reports have said so far.

I don't think we'd normally expect intensive care for broken bones so clearly he's taken a hell of a bang.

I think I read that there were no head injuries/concussion concerns so possibly internal injuries worry?

Froome on Pena 2011, the slow motion reply of a side view is interesting. Bearly pedalling as he flies past Cobo.

Regardless, this is absurd that he could do his and even kmow that he could do it without blowing up.

Now that Cobo has been suspended for passport violation from 2011 it confirms Froome is a doper.
And I here I thought turning a positive confirmed he was doping. And everything else about Froome.

**** loved the days when you at least had to beat your opponents on the road instead of just pulling GT wins out of your ***.
Ha, yeah. But I think those days ended in 1995, correct? Was Riis the first GT winner to be stripped of title years later?

I think I might agree on declaring no winner and asterisking the "winners." Reason being that unlike a one-time event like the 100 meters, there's a whole world of calculations and team tactics that go into a race, so just saying that Froome "won" the 2011 Vuelta b/c Cobo showed passport anomalies isn't a neat and tidy solution.

But to be honest, if this cheers up Froome, I'm all for it. Poor guy, and I mean that sincerely.

Cobo has said he plans to appeal the decision using Froome’s Ventoux performance in 2013 as evidence he wasn’t the only one cheating :lol:
Surely all Cobo has to do is use any of Froome's performances pre-2011 Vuelta to demonstrate that he wasnt the only cheat in that race :confused:

yea, guys, yesterday's indulgence attack didn't last for too long. froome is once again a villain because of cobo getiing stripped the vuelta off. )
Is that how this is supposed to work? Froome crashing yesterday does not affect him being an insult to the viewerships intelligence in the slightest.

Getting beaten by Cobo I think was a great thing for his career; lighting a fire in him that made him go even one step further or two.
That is what I was thinking. A guy who is very clearly cheating...sorry, I don't really care what happens to him. Call me evil. Call me soulless. But if you are out there making millions and lying directly to everyone, um....so what if you have some bad luck?

You didn't exactly instill a reason to care about you. My feeling is that plenty of decent people have awful things happen to them. So when something bad happens to someone choosing to do illegal things, sorry, I don't have much energy to sympathize. I didn't wish him ill. But I don't really care that he had some bad luck. He didn't really care about lying to everyone, did he?
