He’s an idiot, and his stupid bloody girlfriend. After his antics in the tour last year where he was leading Wiggo up the mountain but felt the need to grandstand and make it look like he was so much stronger than Wiggo and needed to be as blatant as possible in letting everyone else know. I for one will be happy if he does crap in the tour. With Contador back he’s going to find it more difficult than last year.Posted 4 years agollamaMember

OK maybe Bertie has not *cough* peaked *cough* yet but it’s not looking that way at the moment is it.
the trouble for Froome is that, I’m sure he is an OK bloke, but it does not come across as such, and he appears a bit shifty.
However, his saving grace is that he is a waaaay more interesting than Wiggo to watch, so that makes him good in my books.

His climb rate for those 20min confirmed something else we already suspected. Physiologically not possible unless… .Posted 4 years ago

he is in that he has a turn of pace rather than grinds them out
Still know which one I would rather be stuck on a desert island with and that is his real problem
Cav and wiggo are proper personalities where as he is just a great bike rider with a “supportive” GF
Anyone really see him winning sports personality of the year?Posted 4 years ago
No idea why people are blathering on about his ‘personality’, maybe you should watch Big Brother instead if this stuff bothers you so much.
True enough. Professional cyclists aren’t usually laden with personality – for every Pantani there’s an Indurain or a Lance. I’m guessing most people who enjoy hour after hour on bikes aren’t normally 24/7 gag-crackers… which makes me wonder, incidentally, how many people on here actually ride bikes.
Strange for a profesional athlete, but it’s Froome’s raw ambition that I find most unappealing.Posted 4 years agowartonMember

This. Lets be honest here, name me three other cyclists who used to mash a 56-11 in a time trial one day, then fly up a 12km climb the next. how about:
He gets more suspicious every day.
Here’s the counter position: Team Sky are totally clean, not a whiff of banned substance between them.
So why did they hire one of the most notorious team ‘doctors’ in the sport?Posted 4 years agocaptain slowMember
Froomedog is indeed less of a personality than Wiggo, but more interesting to watch riding up a mountain as he really does have a change of pace.
Personally I think he was(is) the only chance of a british (ok I know he’s really Kenyan) winner of a grand tour this year and I hope he stuffs it up the previously banned for substance abuse contador good and proper.

I’m warming to him (nothing like having an adopted Brit that’s winning to change your mind 😉 ). I thought he was a prick during the TdF last year and his GF needs to STFU about cycling stuff but yeah he is good on a bike and able to react to attacks better than Wiggo so should hopefully be a little less stressful watching mountain-top Tour stages.Posted 4 years ago
Fuzzywuzzy is on my wavelength… (that may be a good or a bad thing)&
This is also a good point.

I quite like a sports person who just goes out there and trains and performs as well as they can, and don’t put any consideration in to their public image.
And so for this, I like Mr Froome.
I’m thinking of other sports people fit in to this category….
Loads out there.Posted 4 years ago

She really needs to STFU. I cant believe that 11000 people follow her. Sad. “Retired IT geek”. Free loading gold digger more like.
Oh teh ironing. She can’t say what she likes but you can spout nonsense like that?
They important word in your post is ‘follow’. I don’t care what she or Cath Wiggins have to say so follow neither.Posted 4 years ago
