This is fascinating, up to 3:30 lead.

You have to give it to Froome, he is one brave rider!

Dark day for Italian cycling, don't think there's ever been a Giro without an Italian rider in the top 5.

It's a given that he is going to get canned for the tour. The whole sky team should tbf.


FFS :lol: I would just love to hear your reasoned argument behind that bollocks

Team sponsored. fudge up DURING a tour when they have full supervision of rider.


Team sponsored what. If Sky are the systematic doping machine certain people are making out, then they are f**king rubbish at it if this is how they get caught. The commons report is also a disgrace, barely a fact in it, just a lot of unsubstantiated suspicion authored by a lot of politicians

Also, how many other teams have been suspended for having a rider fail a drugs test, never mind return an adverse analytical finding.

It might just be smoke and mirrors, but in an interview before the Giro, Froome stated he was absolutely certain that he would be cleared and he certainly seems to be putting in a hell of an effort into a race everyone seems to think will not count.

Personally I think he should have taken a voluntary suspension but there is clearly a lot going on in the background

Well, lets not kid ourselves. Pretty much every rider in the grand tours and the majority of elite sportsman are on PEDs.

Lets just enjoy it for what it is, a great ride!

I hope so... and the ramp has some savage angles to it in spots, it could be that. He's dragged these other 3 along today.

Lots of support for Froome. Say what you want about him but you have to admire the guts of the man.

They all mugged Dumoulin off at the end. I reckon Froome leads by about 30s with the bonus times.

No sucking in TTs. Grand tours need more of them to weed out shit wagons like those two.
