- Froome in 'Golden Tunic', er… TdF….er… WTF?
That bit mean
Lance you bastard you said it was about the bike and I believed you. They said you cheated and I defended you. I bought a yellow band and together we fought cancer. The govt went after you and I defended you Lance, I stayed true …then then this LANCE THIS
LANCE I DONT TRUST ANYONE …riders they are all like you you lying bastard
Someone else want to do the next one?Posted 4 years ago
Apparently, according to the Gruniad (and from TdF organisers):
Not only will Froome and the other finishers ride all the way up the Champs and around the Arc de Triomphe, the race winner will do so in a unique golden tunic…. revealing that the jersey will be sequinned
Errr… this could be funny 😯Posted 4 years ago
Hora none of that rambling post made any sense!
I’m no dreamer either….I would be quite surprised if Froome is clean-the rider he reminds me of is your fallen hero Lance…however his winning margin is not really that surprising is it? The bloke in second is in his first Tour and the bloke in third is in his second (albeit is pretty experienced)
What has Schleck got to do with it? Do you actually follow road cycling or just the tour? I’m guessing the latter as Schleck fared much better than most expected this year.Posted 4 years agospeckledbobMember
I think there’s a good chance Froome is clean. Schlecks been poor all year, Evans is old and tired and Bertie is clearly off the beef. They all looked tired today. You know, like they’d ridden a hard tour. Not like Lala, Pantani and the likes who just seemed to power on regardless.
Just not natural.
Edit. Fair enough bikebouy.But its good that it keeps coming up. Riders are presumably under much greater pressure to be clean than ever before.Posted 4 years ago
Hora we all believed at some point and we all wanted to believe at some point. the story sold well and the man dominated them all with his force of personality and cycling prowess.Posted 4 years ago
He was not alone but we can but hope it is a new dawn.
Dont loose faith in the sport or taint them all with the same brush.
I think there is a genuine change in the peleton, riders, team ethics and the sport in general.crashtestmonkeyMember
Didn’t anyone else think the whole ‘cigar’ thing was a bit, er.. off?
the cigar thing involving Joaquim “Purito” Rodriguez, Purito meaning ‘little cigar’ and a reference to him passing his team mates on a climb at his first training camp making a “smoking a cigar” gesture?
No more naff as an image referring to celebration than drinking champagne (good grief Froome looked uncomfortable), but more amusing given who it involved.Posted 4 years ago
