- Froome going for Vuelta GC
Personally I’d like to see him on another team as team lead with some quality support to see how good he can be. I’d love to see a fight between Contador, Wiggins, Froome, Schleck and Nibali next year with the gloves off. My money is on Contador, but it’d be good viewing nonetheless.Posted 5 years agobreatheeasyMember
Would have been interesting to see if he had been ‘let off the lease’ and mashed his way up the moutains. He could easily have knackered himself and ended up losing time the following days so it might have not been as clean cut that he would have beaten Wiggins anyway.
Good Sky team around both Wiggins and Froome. It was almost a shmae the bickering started and put a bit of a spoiler on the TdF result.Posted 5 years agohammeriteMember
The team is a very strong team. As for racing tired, apart from Ian Stannard (who didn’t ride the TdF) they’ve all ridden no more (and in many cases a lot less) than they would usually before the Vuelta….. with the exception of Sergio Henao who is in his first year racing at this level.
(check out CQ rankings number of race days and no of KM raced).
I think Froome could do well. Contador might not come back as good as he was, not from using a different butcher, but actually just not being too race fit. He could do very well come the World Champs though, should have just about found his legs.Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember

Did/does the ban cover all raceing or just the top tier, i.e. will he have kept his toes wet raceing domesticaly?Posted 5 years agobrakesMember
what I’d really like to see is how he fairs in the hills when let off the leash – if Team Sky are letting him lead in what is the hardest of the Tours in terms of mountains then they must have some confidence in him?Posted 5 years ago
I hope he does well, regardless of what his girlfriend’s neighbour’s cat said on Facebook.
