Hint, site bruising where the needle was inserted for blood transfusion.

20 degrees, so still does not explain the need for arm warmers. Why only Froome wearing them and none of the others?

"Dark colored clothing heats the surface and thus lowers the air density, improving efficiency. The use of a proprietary fabric that breaks the air like a golf ball results boosts the super-scientific-sky-video-game-score to one billion."

Headline: Marginal gains means all your bases are belong to us.

Froome hiding his arms with arm warmers on Sky's ride today in 30degrees. Only Sky rider wearing them!

Bit like the time Millar used to cover his arms with a white substance claiming he was sensitive to sun, yet at his last tour he was sunbathing.
30 deg in Andorra this morning? (1000 meters above sea) after yesterday evening big storm? mmmm

http://www.ilmeteo.it/meteo-europa/Andorra+la+Vella

they usually ride in the morning. I think it was around 20 degrees
Surely the other riders with him were subjected to the same weather??
has anyone of you ridden in a group and remember everyone has different reaction to temperatures?

did anyone ever saw a race where riders wear different things?

I don't recognise the trek rider behind Froome and Sagan, but he must be hiding something as well, he's the only one wearing arm warmers

Froome still got the weird tan line thing going on his inner arm. What gives?

That's obvious he must have been taking blood transfusions whilst sunbathing

Sky riders don't sunbath, Walsh said so.

Its still a bizarre tan line...

Tyler Hamilton talked about it in his book;

"I watched my blood bag slowly empty..."

"Everybody else was in shorts and short sleeves. The three of us, still chilled, kept our sweatsuits on."

Don't want anybody taking any high-res photos of the arms looking for marks and bruises - much safer than makeup. Marginal gains. Not sure why any rider wouldn't cover up as much as much as possible for these photo sessions anyway, TBF

My once a year pilgrimage to this forum (Sky fanboy you see) and it's still the same old people hammering away at their keyboards with the same old nonsense. I can never entirely work out if it's demented or desperately sad.

Either way it doesn't change the fact that another 12 months has rolled by without a shred of evidence against Froome or Sky.

See you July 2017 guys. This thread adds to the overall joy of the TdF for me.
Two things:

There also wasn't " a shred of evidence" about Wonderboy & his 6, 381+ tests, and howd that work out?

It's kind of the same nonsense about LeMond doping too? Not a shred of evidence stating he did, yet there are about 8 different threads on the subject and others claiming he did.

have you got the temperature by chance? and humidity, air pressure, even wind direction? (maybe they left the windows open)

old post of his facebook:
As some of you might know I suffer from chronic hives (urticaria) - I have to be very careful of any creams or lotions I use and have special kit made without any rubber logos or grips.
I received these products as a prize at a race last year from Saint Gervais Mont Blanc and was very hesitant to use them at first, but now I can't live without them. They didn't cause any reaction and soothed the irritation that I did have.
So if you're looking for some great skin products & have issues with allergic reactions (or not) I'd highly recommend giving them a try.
And in case you're wondering, no, I'm not being paid to share this, just relieved to find something that works!! #NotAnAdvert

My admiration for Kimmage's determination and persistence is incredible. He's fighting an invincible battle but I would love for him to see the day Froome, Wiggins et al. slip up and finally get busted for whatever the hell they're on.

Seriously how low can the clinic get. Accusing someone of doing a transfusion because he is wearing a long sleve top is ridiculous and stupid, for starters why would froome do it on the rest day before the conference and three days prior to Ventoux. If Chris wanted to do one it would be just before ventoux not know. Secondly as has been pointed out you are selecting photos to meke it seem like froome is the only one wearing the long sleaves, that again is wrong on so many levels. I'm all for freedom of speech and everything but posting completly biased selected evidence to build a case against some one is extremly dangerous. Surely one of the mods will see this and take appropriate action by deleting the post. Otherwise we are stting a dangerous precedent that will reduce the once great clinic that brought lance down to a place with no credibility and the joke of cycling forums around the world. Just to be clear I like the idea of the clinic and a lot of the stuff posted is interesting and well thought out but the efforts of those people is being tarnished by some posters.

actually, you get the transfusions a few days before, not one or two days before, because the body may struggle to fully assimilate the fresh volume. Dont attack the messenger, this is pretty common knowledge in haema doping circles.

cheers

whether this has anything to do with long sleeves is anyones guess, I assume not. I assume at such a low bodyfat and low white/red tissue, that you will feel the cold like no other, so this is an Occam's razor lens
