  • Alan59

    53 minutes down , and I felt bad about being 32 minutes down in a Stage of the The Tour of Slovakia in 1980 !

      • Adam K

        Lol, nice one :)

    • I would love to hear more about that!

  • Morten Reippuert Knudsen

    Well, then dont use them for the remaining of the race – ride alone back to the peleton, dont accept water or food from them, orden them not to close gaps or controlling breakaways, stay of their wheels…

    If he doesnt, its just cheap talk…

  • Legstrong

    Cut my team into pieces, this is my last assault.

    • H.E. Pennypacker

      Suffocation, no breathing, don’t give a f***, no inhaler, left wheezing

        Do you even care if I start doping?
        Would it be wrong, would it be right?
        If I took EPO tonight
        Chances are that I might
        Winning outta sight
        And I’m contemplating xipamide

    “Although the Astana team later – and controversially – hammered it on the front to try to reduce the gap..” why controversially?

    • H.E. Pennypacker

      Because of those damn blue shorts. I’ve seen fewer moose knuckles at a wildlife sanctuary in Alaska.

    • Shane Stokes

      Because, with Scarponi so far back overall, most regarded it as the team helping Sky.

  • jules

    I can only presume Froome knows that come July, it’s rival team members who are more likely to miss the cut-off and he doesn’t want to set a precedent?

  • Rick Harker

    I’m sure Froomy is talking technically with regards to the rules. Tour de France has done a similar thing in the past but on arguments for and against its not fair to those who do put in an effort as opposed to the riders taking it easy for a fresher start the next day, which was a sprint finish.

  • James_Casper

    So Froome is going to do the honourable thing and try to win this race without the help of his team mates.

    Each stage the remaining Sky riders will head to the back of the peloton and form then laughing bunch.

    Froome is going to do this all by himself. Legend.

  • velocite

    What a situation. If the slowness was deliberate then there must have been quite a lot of talk in that grupetto, to get all that agreement. And surely it couldn’t have happened without Sky team management having a say. If they did, then Froome has effectively called out his own team for..I won’t again say cheating, let’s call it too clever tactics. The decision not to cut them was wrong and should be reversed.

    Froome is setting a new standard for straight talking.

  • George Darroch

    And they say powermeters are killing cycling…

    Take 93 riders from the race, make it interesting.
