“Until now Froome’s opportunities have been limited…”
    Pretty sure Froome has had plenty of opportunities

      It would be neat if this site had a little typo messaging corner.

    • Thanks – fixed.

    it’s going to be interesting seeing how Porte and Van Garderen plays out. neither has really stepped up to the top level yet, but both have shown glimpses of potential. maybe this year we’ll see one of them finally mix it up properly with the race contenders?

      Don’t you think finishing 5th twice in the tour is an example of someone who has stepped up? He would go close to being the 2nd most successful American rider in the tour de france.

        both more than 10 mins. down on the winner. it’s not on the ‘top level’, as I meant it.

        didn’t Lance finish 3rd?

        • Sean

          Lance (and Floyd) aren’t recorded as winners. He seems like a clear number 2 behind Greg. 5th makes him a hitter, it places him in the top 2% of finishes.
          *disclaimer – I can’t stand the guy and hope richie has his bad day after TJVG has his bad few days.

    In the fourth to last paragraph it should read “between Porte and Tejay” not “Froome” I suppose.

      Thank you – hazards of writing at midnight :)
