Speaking of body fat..... it's been a lovely day out there in Twitter land.... :cool:

Just need Swart to then up tell us all "just needed to lose the fat" :rolleyes:

Most TdF winners are at 6% body fat.

Swart again proven to be untrustworthy. Defending Froome against known knowledge. Lying.

i wonder if froome and his friends know that people could see what they said years after , because their statements are really stupid and contradictory , i guess 95 % of cycling fans don't care but these are really bull***

What was even more intriguing was Lady Michelle of Monaco accosting a cancer patient who has been on hormone replacement,jet drugs (which make you gain weight) for looking like she had 40% body fat. Most charming.

i don't want to even comment M.Cound she is not Worth of words
 
I wonder by how many minutes Froome would've won the TDF or Vuelta, if he was actually trying. My guess is 30+ minutes.

Any guesses on what Froome is looking at while he stares at the computer mounted on his stem? Battery power indicator? SDB text messages? Mexican soap operas?

10% body fat? Hahahaha, yeah right.
Internal/external body fat. Obviously the Froomes are going to pick the number that shows them in the most favorable light.
I remember an interview with Contador earlier this year in which he said he wanted to be at 3% BF for the TDF. Obviously that is just external BF, otherwise he'd be dead. But there is no way Froome is at 10% external BF in that case. And that's the issue with what they're claiming, 10% BF is considered healthy, but if you look around on google you'll see the examples of 10% BF males look nothing like Froome.

The computer is on the handlebars though. The stem IS magnetising in its own right it seems.

On screen there is probably power, hr, time, cadence and a real time W' balance reading. The latter indicates how much hi intensity work (in kilojoules) he can put out above his threshold (critical Power) Watts. The harder you go, ie the more you exceed the CP, the quicker the expenditure of the w' balance. Exhaustion occurs near zero balance if the parameter values CP and W' are well defined. In pros, they probably are.

Yoyoing would fit this guess fairly well. Abstain from attacking and responding early on and ride just at CP. Then switch on the afterburners and go for it once the others have expended their capacity AND you can be sure to withstand the effort to the line.

Needless to say that real time W' balance is a race killer metric. Should be banned. heck, computers should be banned.

Pity Vayer fails to mention it is a series of athletes doing this 'naked profile article' in the times, nothing individual to Froome.

Mrs Froome caught lying on twitter. Tsk tsk. Not good for Froome's.

Funny stuff. :D

how that pic is proving that she RAN the forum ?
You like Froome, huh!

I never said it did. Mrs Froome denied being a fan of Mr Armstrong. She was caught. She has been caught lying in interviews with Kimmage too.
Digger wrote she ran a forum, denied that she ran the forum, not the fact she loved Armstrong

Well some are clutching at straws if they accept at face value - I wouldn't use his name to support any argument.
No Froome has not a lot of credibility when it comes to clean sport and Mrs Froome doesn't have a straw! :)
