Froome turns into the Bionic Dawg as his miraculous recovery continues :lol:

Dave Brailsford says Chris Froome only left hospital yesterday an put his feet on the floor for the first time in a long time. Now continuing his recovery at home.
They've made him better, stronger, faster. Internal motors, now. Can't wait for the comeback. :D
There won’t be a big comeback
 
It's odd that on the start day of the TdF, with the first time in ages that Froome isnt there, and the prospect of having a more open race.....people are still here posting their silly fantasies about Froome.

It's like those people bleating on and on about Cav not being at the Tour, only weirder.

And here you are. This is the Froome thread afterall.

since August 2011, every day that froome is still a pro bike rider is weird...

since September 2011, every day that Froome has been the 'best stage racer of his generation' is even weirder....

well, never had a boggie man before him and no one looking like the next and so whilst I wouldn't have wished anyone's career to end via a bad crash (although he's looking good for it ;) )...if he never bothers another podium again I won't be shedding any tears, shall we say....
 
I agree with this, really. Ever since I started watching pro cycling nearly 40 years ago, it has involved 'superhuman' moments from riders, particularly from the very late 80s onwards, but Froome has stretched this too far for me to be comfortable thinking that I'm watching a bike race rather than a pharmaceutical race (as did Armstrong, as did Indurain). Have to give the guy some credit beyond the purely physical as his tactical skill and bike handling skills are light years away from his Barlo days, but still he just grates too much.
