Yes, it's pretty much the standard path to Tour greatness, placing 5th, 2:20 back from David Millar on a pan-flat 40k course. About a year before basically becoming the top GT rider in the world.

Makes sense.

How strange that none of the riders ahead of him were able to make these amazing leaps in form. Nice riders, a couple of them, but somehow not able to progress and continue to beat the world-beating Froome.

1 David Millar (Scotland) 0:47:19
2 Alex Dowsett (England) 0:00:55
3 Luke Durbridge (Australia) 0:01:01
4 Michael Hutchinson (Northern Ireland) 0:02:14
5 Christopher Froome (England) 0:02:20
6 Rohan Dennis (Australia) 0:03:03
7 Zachary Bell (Canada) 0:03:17
8 Jack Bauer (New Zealand) 0:03:30
9 Jesse Sergent (New Zealand) 0:04:15
10 Ryan Roth (Canada) 0:04:51

So from that we can take it that Dowsett and Durbridge are bone idle bankers!

Stop with saying shut up to people Jimmy, reply to a post points directly or don't reply at all. Last time was just a delete, this time it's a warning.
 
Sir Dave says its a game changer

Got the excuse prepared for when Froome and Brad smash the times of Lance, Pantani and big Jan up the mountains and there isn't a headwind/sidewind/tailwind

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/cycling/10860674/Sir-Dave-Brailsford-hails-Team-Skys-12000-Jaguar-designed-bike-as-a-game-changer.html

Sir Dave Brailsford has declared that Team Sky’s latest bike - - has the potential to be a game-changer in professional road cycling.

It is just so much fun following this sport. We are just missing some religious figure. Can't someone get the pope on a bike.

The collective amnesia sets in again. I'll be assured very firmly that this time, unlike the last few times, it's different.

Oh christ. Those stats are enough to make even Gerard Vroomen blush.

Seatpost reduces drag by...84%! :eek:

Contador doesn't stand a chance!

The whole thing reads like a Clinic parody. There's only so much to work with when they've done all the work for us. :D

That would the 2006 Games representing Kenya

Which I believe is #3 onthis clip

he finished 5 mins down, which really isn't bad given his age at the time.
Thats the one he kind of blagged himself in to?

Also look at the size of him - i'm no expert but may be 1 st / 7 kg too heavy? Maybe more?

That crash must have cost 20 seconds or so as well?
