More and more I'm seeing the logic behind Movistar's tactics on Sunday. If I was the rest of the peloton I'd just race as if Froome wasn't there. Froome is so ridiculous he might as well be flat out ignored. Race for 2nd. ASO might give you the win in a couple of years, anyway.

It reminds me of The Hog's post discussing TdF favourites which completely ignored Froome. There's nothing else to be done.

just be glad you never witnessed the merckx years

Let's get this over with:

It's a second class field.

Last year he was second at the last TT so this is totally normal.

The wind doesn't hurt him due to Sky's ultraspecial aerodynamic techniques.

He's riding a Pinarello which is much more advanced than those shoddy Walzers of the other riders.

Tony Martin has hurt his ribs, so he's just second rate today.

Hinault, Lemond and Merckx also were good climbers and great at the TT. Froome is a tad better, the best climber and the best TT specialist, but that's because this is a second class field.
All his rivals are ex-dopers off the gear. That's why they suck now.:rolleyes:

Seems legit . . .

Has this kind of domination ever been seen?
