i even can't imagine how many times this pic was listed on here. what do you seriously hope for guys? to see froome crying and admitting doping? never gonna happen.

I wonder about that too: the clinic knows Froome dopes. fine, ok.
and some members still believe he´s clean and say it, so maybe posting the Hendy´s push 37254835 times will help them to remember Froome´s sudden transformation.

I think anyway it´s useless. it´s like you high fiving the previous poster, who you previously already agreed with, about Froome not being clean.

we know it.
seeing Hendy´s push and the TT crash every other day just makes me root more for him. I know, I´m wrong. well, I was a Miguel fan. I loved him.

ps. what the guys hope for? for him getting caught. but I dont think it will happen
Why do you think people are hoping for a certain event to occur?

People like the picture because it brings the Froome transformation into perspective.

I've not seen it published here in a number of weeks if not months. My sense is you're exaggerating a lot because the picture is too revealing for you. That's ok, you're a fan, you're entitled to like Froome, no harm done.
obviously I was exaggerating about "every other day"
it´s not too revealing. as I said, I am fully :D aware he´s not clean.
nice to know I am entitled to like him ;) the clinic entitles me to like Froome
The Clinic is not one person, its several with varying different viewpoints on a multitude of topics. Whether you're entitled to like Froome or not is not up to me or the collective group.

I think moreover the photograph is extremely funny. Just when there's a sway on Froome's "big engine" in testing back in the mid 2000's we are reminded of his race performances, this one showing his designated role as "pusher of sprinters" :p

Its most obvious that the various aliments and injuries are created so the specific medication can be used. Mostly steroid and cortisone based drugs.

2013 Tour and the 2015 Tour the "little death" on l'alpe duez was hilarious. Even more funny when Froome supposedly was sick in the last week of the Tour he then rides 6 criteriums in 6 days the day after the Tour with no apparent sickness. A truly bizarre human specimen he is.
Not bizarre at all, it's called DOPING. He doped to win.

This really is uncalled for Pastro, Miguelon? Impossible!

If people want to post pictures of 'the Push' let them do it. Dont take everything so serious please.
eheh :p :D

Miguel was my idol, really. I was a kid in awe when I met him in Turin at the start village of the Gap stage in 1996. I stood all the time in front of the Banesto cars, I got J.M. Echavarri autograph: "con cariño de amigo"

CyclingWeekly said it was a 'shove' not a 'push' :rolleyes:

Greg Henderson gets a shove from team-mate Chris Froome after a crash on stage 10

Who cares what Froome thinks of the picture, it's not for him, it's about him. There are two pictures I never get tired of, this one and the zig zag up the hill trying to keep up with Gerrans lol

FWIW there were a lot of fanboys here and everywhere else that didn't ever think they would see Armstrong shed a tear and admit doping. There is still a lot of time left for Froome to do the same. I would imagine he will cry like a baby though.

It serves another purpose as well. As this pic has attained meme status, it provides an all-too-easy way to troll his fans without having to fully admit to trolling.

They take the bait every time. :D

so who's he going to be admitting it to? Parky's retired... Won't be Jeremy Kyle, so maybe on the Graham Norton Show??

@ Beno and Flo, while in Lugano they´re dodging taxes and drinking coffee
Lugano income tax is over 30% for high incomes, Monaco = nada zip zilch
with such a closed up little country - more like a island - becomes easy to dodge those pesky drug testings.

Flo, it was just for fun as a reply to your Monaco tax dodging. I couldn´t care less if Alberto or Froome pay taxes.
people can rightly blame Froome for doping, but he flipping can live where he prefers, as many others do and aren´t blamed about living in Monaco.

Froomey did study economics at the U of Jo'burg for a couple of years. :)
He flunked out after and didn't complete his degree. I guess not as bad as Cookson who only has a Diploma in Landscape Architecture.
