Others teams will be hoping that Cookson loses the election and that has a knock on effect on Sky's performances
Froome has turned into a ***. Brailsford has rubbed off on him, and recently he's been very annoying.Breh said:Fck this team. Moscon 13th on Angliru. 5guys in the top20.
It's a shame Froome rides for them because he seems like a really nice and easygoing guy but this team is beyond ridiculous.
Since when has what the Pro Teams thought mattered a *** to the UCI ?Blanco said:
Thomas or Landa would have lost to Dumoulin. 100%. Certainly if he still had Kelderman as well.Robert5091 said:If Wilco Kelderman had not clipped a moto, Sky could have won all 3 GTs. Throw in Kwia's good Spring and the Murdouchs have got a good return for their money.
Since the UCI is bought by the highest bidder.keeponrollin said:Since when has what the Pro Teams thought mattered a *** to the UCI ?Blanco said:
Yeah, you can find arguments to defend Poels & Nieve.....but Moscon?? The way he's ridden the whole race has been like a huge neon sign flashing: "We're back to the pro-wrestling era."hrotha said:Poels was very good but he's done it before Sky. Same with Nieve. It's Moscon I don't buy. And David López was a bit too good today. Froome goes without saying.
And obviously having everybody at their best at the same time is suspicious in itself, even if "their best" is not inherently suspicious on a case by case basis.
Maybe Sunweb will be Sky 2.0?Escarabajo said:UCI should do something about this. They cannot allow the US Postal 2.0.
You just can allow a team to have 6 riders out 15. It is just stupid and ridiculous. It is not that they buy the best talent. No. Porte was no one before he went to Sky. In fact he was worthless for Contador. Now you have Moscon. WTF. You just cannot allow this guy to outclimb everybody while helping somebody else. UCI, I know Froome is your baby but don't over do it!
Sky though, have never shown any collective weakness in this race and some of their team even have a Tour de France in their legs. Perhaps their performance has best been personified by Moscon - a rider who made his Grand Tour debut here but found himself with the necessary horsepower to drop Grand Tour contenders, repeatedly. For a rider who came into this race as a Classics man, he has certainly had an astonishing three weeks.
