The thing is that they say improved bike handling and tactics are the reasons....his style is still awful. His tactics are actually brainless. The only reason he gets away with it is that he's so much stronger than everyone else.
I mean if this is an improvement, the guy must have been pushing other riders instead of cycling...oh wait
And this improvement all came about in 4 weeks. From Poland to the Vuelta...sky fans are a joke.
If Froome was American, had the exact same career trajectory, and rode for BMC, what would they say...
