Stunning OP. Top notch.

Dan Lloyd and some other guy rode stage 2 (and probably others but this is the only one I watched) and it looks beautiful. Might be a good stage. Hopefully it is sunny.

Are there any new cool drugs or is it the same boring stuff as before?

They have a test for AICAR now and will be testing old samples soon so I can imagine some nervous riders around

UCI is basically controlled by Sky/British Cycling now. Worse than the Lance days.

The Kimmage interview of Froome (and his fiancee who for some reason sat in on the interview and self importantly answered a ton of the questions) is pretty legendary

http://www.independent.ie/sport/oth...m-30391816.html part 1

http://www.independent.ie/sport/oth...2-30394950.html part 2

He seems like a nice enough guy, just kinda dumb with zero self awareness who is being led by his stagemom fiance whose own mother is a steroid enthusiast/cyclist https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...&type=3&theater

All in all a sad story.

quote:

Chris Froome: Iím sure thereís going to be another product next year. Right now, everyone is talking about Xenon gas or something but Iíve no idea how it works. New products are always going to come out, but I donít have a (guilty) conscience. Iíve never used any products like that.

It was desperation stuff from Froome. A meaningless waste of energy after Contador hosed him at the Dauphine. He is mentally and physically frail.

Sure looks like the Astana guy set that off when he stood and let his bike surge back. Poor form. The guy behind him then reacted and took out Froomes front wheel.

edit; maybe the Astana guy was just reacting to the person in front of him moving over.

/shrug
I think it was just the one dude bumping the rider next to him because he was crowding. Doesn't look like a reaction to anything else.

Yes. Froome vs Contador was looking like it was going to be one of the great fights.

Nah, Contador already brutally owned him and destroyed him physically and mentally. Now all Alberto has to do is get with Froome's shrew to complete the cucking.

French TV saying Froome's x-ray last night showed a hair line fracture, if true sending him out today was just stupid.

I think they will go with this story to make Froome look like he toughed it out, but you could hear the team and riders telling him to go on and he just threw a fit and got in the car. I bet the most hurt thing is his feelings. Very mentally weak.

If any of you lot busy Froome-bashing think there was nothing suspicious about Nibali and his mountain domestiques dropping 2 of the best classics riders of their generation on the flat then you're out of your loving minds. Ridiculous scenes.

They are totally clean riders for sure, shame there isn't a PED that gives one the ability to ride a bike in rain or Froome might still be in the race haha.
