Froome will climb every mountain pass while remaining in the saddle.

All of his accelerations will be while seated. This includes even from a complete stop at the start of a stage. In this case, Richie Porte will be asked to dismount his bike and walk with Froome to hold his bike steady until he's at a speed where he can clip in.

Contador will replace all of Froome's bidon fluids with loose leaf Chinese green tea.

(seriously)
Talansky will post a top 10 but miss the podium by about 2 minutes.

More of an aspiration than a prediction (the predictive part depends on the clinic being a recipient sink of evaluative nous with enough dilutive power).

The clinic to finally find a solid philosophy and concrete point of reference for its work.

You've lost your sense of humour. I'm actually worried about you.

Is there someone there to keep watch?

If one were to play a drinking game for all the times Phil says Richie Froome, the emergency rooms would be filled to capacity for three weeks straight with cases of alcohol poisoning.
This.

Phil and Paul aren't even listening to each other anymore.

How many times did one repeat what the other had just said on the run in to London, apparently reading the same teleprompter lines??

Gawd this is bad.

Froome films a commercial in which he eats live, squirming bunnies for breakfast, to show how tough he is.

Contador wins the TDF, and when he enters Paris, someone hands him a cup of coffee, instead of the traditional champagne. With a five minute cushion, he's able to stop at a cafe to enjoy it before rejoining the peloton.
I really, really, really hope that second one comes true.

liggett needs to be put out to pasture, in his interest, a sanitorium to treat his early onset dementia he has had to put up with for most of his career

sherwen can go back to conflict diamond mines in rhodesia and congo

Unless he's reading the time gap off the monitor, he basically makes mistakes with everything he says. Does noone say anything to him? Or is omerta all pervasive?

Sherwen must be getting tired of correcting him so often, surely?

I predict today we will find out who has the best bike handling skills and who doesn't...

1. Fans of Sky/Froome can rest easy. He didn't really abandon today, but simply changed his first name.

2. Who want to bet that Phil keeps up the Ritchie Froome all the way to the Champs Elysees?

Oh, ok, since we are working with predictions, I predict Phil will continue with the Porte/Froome flub.

touchy, much?

it was a joke, joyce...
and let's face it, they "pushed the boundaries" a couple of times last year with their infractions.
Name another team that did so. I'm all ears...

or better yet, quote me to show the accused obsession isn't just BS on your part
