From the Guardians piece:

Last week Jeremy Whittle, respected author of the classic cycling book Bad Blood, said he had “never seen a collective performance to compare with Sky in La Vuelta - that includes Banesto, Telekom, Mapei, USP” in his 24 years of covering grand tours. And that strength was emphasised on the penultimate stage, up the steepest 24% incline of the Alto de l’Angliru. While the Italian Vincenzo Nibali, who was more rested having missed the Tour, wobbled and then wilted, Froome and his loyal lieutenant Wout Poels made a devastating incline look like a minor inconvenience.
Sky are so cleans they make Mapei look legit!

Everybody knows that. So what is your point?
none really - just fair play
Entirely different circumstances. And nobody gives Nibali a pass.
entirely diferent. Nibali was fighting for the win, got that tow not to lose time.
Froome was ininfluent for the race

Froome is stong in tt , he is the 2nd best , but he is also the 2nd best in climbing and that's NOT VERY credible to say a soft thing

But for a rider so "strong" at time trials, seems a little weird that he hasn't ridden it since 2009, when he's been in the top 3 ITT riders for the last 5 years.
