however Froome is the best GC rider of the modern era is superior to Indurain , modern era start with Indurain or at best with 1990 , so we are witness a rider much more strong than Contador , it reality because dominating gt consecutive was indurain game but he did with rigged parcours
Yes, Indurain's era courses were rigged. There ain't no back-to-back 250kms mountain stages now like they used to have then.

Yup. Overall I'd say Froome less likeable than Armstrong.
Not possible.
lol, I was going to say the same. That is a big, big call to make. Froome's dominance is incredibly tedious, but he doesn't really come across as a bullying sociopath.
Am i the only one that didnt mind him beeing a total ***? I never found him unlikable for it to be honest. At least he stood out

YOU ARE COMPLETLY RIGHT GUYS WE ARE NOT ALONE
So sad people saying they want to puke !. Get a life !.
People get upset when their favorite athlete doesn't win and behave like spoilt brats. Happens all the time everywhere, it's not exclusive to this forums.

You've been on this forum for 2 days, yet have already found the time to make 118 nonsensical posts.
Thanks. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Does this board have an ignore function?
I think this is the second time someone on this forum has asked this about that particular poster. To ignore, I believe you go on user profile and click 'Add foe.'
Tele is filling the PRR threads with dozens of ridiculous and nonsensical comments. I have already complained about him in the Feedback section. It is becoming increasingly frustrating.

Comes across as an incredibly decent likeable Human being tbh. Intelligent and articulate. People always hate others at the top !. I would be proud if he was my Son !.

Froome is a nice guy. Quiet, boring, tedious. But nice.
How on earth can anyone contend that Armstrong, a bully who ruined numerous peoples lives including fellow cyclists, is more like-able than him???
 
Froome just rode quite normal time trial for a guy of his absolute power, aerodynamics and pacing prowess (with accumulated fatigue in consideration). And somehow it made some people angry... ???

Absolutely nothing weird happened today. He probably wouldn't win a stage if any world class TT specialist was present.
 
1)Froome 2062:53:25
2)Nibali 1:58
3)Kelderman 2:40
4)Zakarin 3:07
5)Contador 4:58
6)López 5:25

So I guess these guys will be battling for the win or the podium. Contador possibly as well if he can pull a rabbit out of the hat on one of the medium mountain stages, but it's difficult to see him taking over two minutes on the mtfs. The only scenario where I think Froome loses is if either he cracks and loses a minute tomorrow, or if Lopez lights up really early on the Angliru stage - dragging Nibali along with him and Froome is on a bad day.

Not sure I get the hyperbole around Froome for this result. Surely 30 seconds on Kelderman and a minute on Nibali is just about par from what we have seen in the last five years. Maybe even slightly under par for such a flat, non technical TT.

You are missing the point completely

This performacne is at the end of his 2nd GT in a row riding for GC when everyone else in the race who rode the Tour are showing the signs (at some point, but mostly now )......this is why its remarkable and quite unbelieveable :rolleyes:

It's remarkable and unbelievable if you haven't been following cycling for the last five years. :rolleyes: If you have been following, then it's pretty much business as usual. He put in a better TT later on in the Vuelta last year.

The point is that being surprised by it at this stage is ridiculous.

...and how exactly is he better than Indurain? Indurain has 5 Tours and 2 Giros and both of the Giros are Giro/Tour doubles. I think you need to read up on cycling history.
Don't engage, you will get a headache.............

If it is how they feel why should it be of any concern? We can't all be naive and blind to what is happening before our eyes. Maybe we should suggest that some need to wake from their fanatical stupor, smothered by the chamois sniffing idiocy of hero worship.

You would have a point were it not for the context.

The only one who can beat Froome is another complete GC contender, like present/future Dumoulin or Condador from 2 years ago... Someone who has more abilities than just climbing. Little climbers can only count on GT route without long TT, and this might not happen.
