Folks, I think it's time he whole bilharzia issue was put to bed wrt froome. It's a disease which is easily eliminated with a single treatment. I also had it, and much like froome didn't know I had it until the doctor noticed I was pee'ing blood when doing a regular medical. I got the treatment and no more pee'ing blood. It's a total non event and thereafter you are no different to anyone else. As soon as froome had the treatment he goes back to normal. People are talking about it like its some rare spectacular disease. Ain't so and I don't believe has anything to do with his current performance at all. The weird thing is that he had it for any period of time - one would margins a pro-cyclist gets plenty of medical checks and it would have showed up pretty easily at any of those.
