what is he risking? well, he aint risking his knighthood unless they bust him for doping. he is just manning up and paying Froome back for last years effort when froome was the best man but sacrificed his own chance.
ok, if his mythology is demolished, he might lose post career earnings from endorsements and media gigs, and doing some good george best impressions with beer ambassadorships....
i dont know, i am old fashioned, i thought wigans owed chris froome.

Galic Ho said:Seriously, somebody attack for Pete's sake! Make Froome have to do the ridiculous. Saxo, send Kreuziger up the road with Roche. Movistar, send in Costa and Valverde. Sky can't cover them all. JV if you're reading this...get your boys to do something. We wanna see Froome break your Ventoux record!!
Andy Schleck and Evans anyone?
DirtyWorks said:All the opponents you mention, it seems to me Costa is the best suited. Otherwise, IMHO Saxo dug deep yesterday. It might have been too much to have something to attack Froome on Ventoux.
That's assuming Froome doesn't just go alien and ride away like he's a Pro at the local cafe run. Which, is entirely possible.
Galic Ho said:The tell will be how much time he puts into Quintana and Contador, the two best climbers in the peloton.
