How about we just get the mods to ban you for cycling season.

It's a long year.

Is it trolling when it's true?

It's a matter of fact that froome broke the rules is it not?

I explained this to you just a week or two ago. There's an agreement to leave the shitflinging out of this thread so we can discuss the racing. If you can't manage that then just stay out of the thread.

Rather makes you wish that he had to chase in previous Grand Tours instead of defending a lead. That was a ride from the end of the world.

So let me get this right.....there is a major doping case going on regarding the premier grand tour rider in the world and it's not allowed be discussed in a thread titled 'UCI Pro Cycling'.......

Seems very 1990s attitude to cycling.

You're not trying to discuss it, you're playing a childish or stupid game of trying to score cheap internet points. Don't be that dumb guy. Be the grown up who can handle something being off topic and not wanted.

you can do this Nardol.

the whole internet is watching.

What's the main gist of the discourse there? Other than it being an epic stage. I hope lots of hate for the s Americans.

Maybe during that time you could do some reading about the facts. Your pish is really tedious and miss informed.

This is a legendary stage, reminds of very old days when a campionissimo, such as Froome, attacked early in the day and had the cojones to shape the race the way he intended to.

Now why would I do that to myself?


If one was to take a cynical view, it was a bit Landis-esque, though. Hopefully we aren’t reassessing this ride in 6 months time.

Is it me or is Pozzevivo's saddle too low, the guys knees are pointing all over the fecking shop the bandy legged toerag FFS

Also I've never been a Froome fan, but you have to take your hat off too him for that ride today - stupendous

Sad for Yates as he's had a good Giro but today will overshadow everything else. If he' lost 40 minutes on Etna and then won 3 stages it would have been viewed very differently than the way its happened

Who I really feel sorry for out of all this is the Sky train lads down the years like Stannard, Thomas, Porte, Rowe etc who spent every TdF since 2012 parked on the front chasing down breakaways, shelling GC contenders out the back and defending yellow jerseys for weeks at a time. They must be looking at today thinking “you mean all along you could’ve just waited to the last couple of days and put 3 minutes into the best in the world? Why the fcuk were we riding on the front all the way across Normandy and Brittany when we could’ve been chilling in the middle of the bunch and letting Trek or Europcar or Tinkov do all that shit...”

Froome has had to gamble that he will recover sufficiently from that brutal ride plus don't forget he would have beaten Wiggins(shut up Gospel) if he had been allowed but he paid his dues to help Wiggins to a TdF title.

Froome is without doubt the best GC rider in the world. His competition at the Giro is a level if not 2 levels below the GC competition at the tour. What he did yesterday I don't think he would have pulled off v the competition in the tour. At least not to the same extent.

About 90 secs of Froome's gain was on decents. Perhaps TD and others should have taken the sort of risks CF did.
