He climbs very well and TT's as good as contenders not called Froome or Tommy D. His engine is certainly good enough. Froome can't enter every race, which gives others a chance. Clearly it's his bike handling/mentality that is the issue. Tough to overcome that though when you obviously do get big descents and bad weather in 3 week races.Blanco said:No, he hasn't got the engine.Son of Amsterhammer said:I feel bad for him.
He has the engine to win a GT. I wonder if he can seek out some kind of coaching or extra training for descents? It's clearly an issue for him. In the interview before the race started, he brought it up as a worry. So you know it was on his mind.
