Yeh I think I am of the same view. Was ****ed when they just used Cav as an expensive trophy. It's clearly not a British team its a corporate international team with deep pockets.Akuryo said:Wiggins could have been of great help for Froome. But since I like Wiggins and don't like Team Sky I am quite happy, cause now he will search a new team for next year!
Yup a great point. Actually I would love Wiggo to sack off the grand Tours and go for the classics. Absolutely loved his PR effort!richo36 said:this is possibly the best thing about him missing the tour is there is no chance he will stay with sky. hope that what ever team he goes to he chases classics (PR and flanders) over gts.
Sky needed him for the cobbled stage. I know they have Thomas but I feel that this is one of the most important stages of the tour. having both would be a vital support for froome. Last time the cobbles were used the second group on the road came in 53 seconds down. anyway who loses that sort of time is going to be put in a difficult spot for the res
froome doesn't have kind things to say about wiggins, to put it mildly (book excerpts posted in the clinic). I can't imagine wiggins wanting to ride the TDF for froome tbhCance > TheRest said:Yes, he definitely should've been included, if not for the drama it might create, then for his results this season. He has been one of the most visible SKY riders of the season so far, so that automatically should earn him a tour-spot.
Very unprofessional attitude by Froome and SKY to let Froome's apparently mental issues with Wiggins get in the way...
