He hasn't won it more often than the other 3 time winners.42x16ss said:With three TDF wins, Froome is getting close to the absolute greats of the sport. Wigans may have been more competitive on other fronts, but Froome has won the most prestigious race there is more often than all but Anquetil, Merckx, Hinault and Indurain (and Armstrong according to some).movingtarget said:No doubt Wiggins is more versatile but three Tours has to count for something with probably more to come plus a couple of previous podiums in the Tour and Vuelta. By the time Froome is finished he will be remembered more than Wiggins as a road rider at least.huge said:Currently Wiggins definitely has a much bigger place in cycling history than Froome.
I mean, that guy has gone from I don't remember how many Olympic golds in Track Cycling to a Tour, an Olympic Gold in TT, the Hour Record (untouchable at the moment) and God knows whatelse.
And I'm very very far from being a Wiggins' fan!
Barring clinic issues, Froome will be remembered for longer.
