Teams & Riders Froome Talk Only

Page 958 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
While the extended discussion AICAR testing capabilities of WADA accredited labs is interesting it doesn't belong in this thread. The question about the Cologne lab being the only one capable of testing is certainly pertinent to the discussion (I'm pretty sure every lab is capable of doing IRMS as it is required for testosterone detection), but the surrounding discussion is going a bit off topic.

Thanks!

If only the mods had ways of making sniper talk and not just shutting him up, we might get an actual answer from him to the question...

Wait, Sky basically rated him as their worst rider? :D
Fwiw, when Sky were starting up with their aim of producing a British Tour winner within 5 years, they were looking at two riders: Froome and Thomas. Then Wiggins had his Tour in 09 and all the plans changed. It's a shame that Froome's become too common to search the forum history on here, because until recently, you could see posts before the 2011 Vuelta from multiple forumers who seemed very excited about Froome. Ok, not as a potential 4 time Tour winner and the dominant stage racer of his era, but it definitely looked like people expected him to be a challenger for top 5s in major stage races.

Not denying that he's 99% likely to have doped to get where he is right now, but the image of Froome as a talentless kid who cheated his way to the top is also ridiculous
Do you have a source for this?

Kennaugh was the one normally thought of with the comment IIRC
Ah yeah, my bad, you're right.

But anyway, there was some excitement about Froome until he joined Team Sky, after which it all faded away, and then he started getting offered around in 2011

This is f.hilarious. Last week Rick James was in here telling us Brailsford didn’t need the pawn off Froome. Now we find out Brailsford was prostituting Froome to anyone he could find.

And then, if by magic...........

Froome finishes 2nd in the Vuelta by going full genius. What are the chances?
Did Froome perform like that clean? Aw hell naw
Did Froome do anything that Cobo didn't? Aw hell naw

UCI's fault that there is still more than enough incentive for a rider to dope

Exactly. Froome almost our Cobo’d Cobo. Almost. Poor gear choice on Angliru and some stage seconds lost it. Otherwise he would have and should have won. Fairly awesome seeing he spent week one on the front pacing Wiggins.

A bit off but do we know Froome's blood type? Apart from being T (transfused), what if his blood is of type O? I've heard that this makes possible much more efficient fat burning than other types who run on carbs better.

Chris Froome believes in clean cycling. So does Alexander Vinokurov.

Presumably it also applies to all the other riders that went there ? Or are they given a pass ?
nah, they are given a pass. Landa, Aru, Quintana who were there are given a pass, no problem
Yeah, sure, y'all know that everyone knows Landa, Aru and Quintana are cleans :D

From those riders, I think its only Froome that works with Ellingworth, the man who rips out book pages when dopers are included....

he'll be sooooo disappointed with our hapless hero..... ;)

That is hilarious; who can forget that Walsh doozy.

Definitely, and you can also see when someone calls them a doper on their threads, their fans complain that you're not calling out Froome...

...oh...wait...

Only in your persecution complex world of "Froome is set upon unjustifiably by the masses". Blinkered to see what makes you happy and complete. Carry on loyal soldier.
