I'll say to the people who don't believe, the cynics and the sceptics: I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles. *then link to the article in question*
Uhhhhhhhhhhh, really? A big block of wintertraining while having a relapse of bilharzia?Froome on Cyclingnews said:“I saw last year that everything starts with a big winter of training. That’s been my model.”
Lets hope he doesnt get a relapse in the middle of the Tour. Not even mentioning the explanation on how the big pills work...Friday 25 January 2013
Froome flew in earlier this week and revealed he recently underwent treatment for bilharzia. The tropical disease is caused by parasitic worms and has affected him before in recent years.
"In terms of that illness, I actually went for a check 10 days ago and found out that I did have to repeat the treatment again," he said. "It means these big pills that basically poison you and kill everything in your stomach and I took that in the last week. I am feeling much better now and hopefully I am in the clear for another six months or so.
Didnt Hamilton say he was able to see his organs due to his dieting?It is rather interesting how all these over 6 foot types are ending up around 150lbs. these days...with barely enough muscle to put in a teacup!

SundayRider said:I'm pretty light if you go by 'scales and BMI' but I don't look anywhere near as skinny as these guys, I think a fair few of the weights given are inaccurate. I know quite a few triathletes who are similar to the weights/heights of those in the pro peloton but again they don't look as unhealthy, maybe its because the cyclists physiques are so unbalanced.

staubsauger said:Actually my Bmi also is about 17, but I don't look nearly as skinny as the Chicken did. It's pretty weird.
webbie146 said:BMI is a very unreliable thing to use. Just compare your body fat percentage if you would like to compare.
For example I'm 1.70m and weight 60kg. My BMI is very low but I am not that thin at all. Just a small build. Bmi is just not reliable at all, fat percentage is.
Carstenbf said:You know, I'm half allright with seeing these alien mutants flying up the cols like in the days of old. It's when they dominate 30k+ pancake ITT's that I tend to get annoyed.
(tho I'm as guilty of bias as the next guy, seeing as I used to hate Contador for that very fact, and yet now I'm cheering him on, coz he rides for "my" team)
thehog said:The ideal scenario would be for the Dawg to lose 3 minutes in the opening week due to crashes.
Then he'll have to go full full genius to make up the time.
That would be excellent!
Alex76 said:What chances for the spanish to form a 'Spanish Armada' and gang up v Skyborgs?
Conto, J-rod & Valv....and their 3 teams.
That i see is about the only possible way we are going to see an exciting TdF.
Otherwise i have visions of the Sky Train on that final climb in the daup. being repeated all month....
