Also Wiggo screwed Froome over in the 2011 Vuelta which he would have undoubtedly won had Sir Wiggo done the decent thing and set him free of his domestique shackles when he realised he couldn't win. He lost by 13 seconds to a cheating Spaniard....
More utter crap on this thread, juan jose cobo won the 2011 veulta and he has never been caught taking drugs.along with pyro tim saying froome was crap 2 year's ago its all a bit laughable
Sadly given the history of professional cycling, in particular over the last 15 years and as the first post-Armstrong revelations Tour, it isn't laughable and it's only right to question. This is certainly not fair on Froome - how does he prove a negative - but when you have Dr Michael Ashenden saying "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is" (NOT about Froome but the principle holds) then there should be healthy scepticism. And Team Sky saying "we're clean" really shouldn't cut it.
But it's not just about Froome or Sky - where is the querying of Movistar and Valverde and Rui Costa, particularly given their murky drug related past? No real mention, certainly not by Phil and Paul. And no positive tests from this years Tour?
It's possibly unfair on Froome, but the last time we had a rider suffering from a life threatening illness and coming back amazingly to win the Tour, look what happened. Has there been a better Grand Tour rider than Froome since 2011? And, given he was about to be dropped by Sky, where did all this come from in his mid 20s? Unfair? I definitely hope so. But not to even query?
