Nope you need to be clean to beat Froome, and only sky are allowed to be clean. The others are just recovering dopers.luckyboy said:This is just ridiculous. Wish there was an Ulrich-like figure this generation to provide some semblance of competition.
To be fair to Froome Dog, he lost to Martin by 30 or so seconds at the Olympics TT.hfer07 said:+10000000
I also bet you Froome even started to "cool down" over the last k since there was no need to keep pushing the pace...
Totally legit, 1 mountain and 1 (30k) TT = a time gap already big enough to win the Tour. You have to really be not paying attention to believe this stuff.Parrulo said:After pretty much 1 mountain stage and 1 time trial

That is a very good question!BigMac said:This ridiculous, why do we even bother watching le Tour.
Just 1 minute in 20k.zlev11 said:did LA ever even put 2mins into the closest GC contender in a TT this short? it's ridiculous
He was about 50 seconds down at the 2011 Vuelta over a longer course, same as the Dauphine this year. So an improvement but not the sort that deserves "The day Cycling died" thread, surely?DirtyWorks said:To be fair to Froome Dog, he lost to Martin by 30 or so seconds at the Olympics TT.
Still no explanation where that TT power was prior to 2012!
Zero to hero makes a sensational return to cycling once more.
