Wonder what racing he’ll do as prep?
Froome broken leg!
Blown off his bike by wind on a descent doing recon for TT last night
Took hands off the bars to blow snot out his nose
if its anything like Beloki then thats the end!!!
As much as I’m not a Froome fan, pretty disappointed he won’t be at the Tour.
You gotta wonder about the rate the pro’s break femurs…
Limited weight bearing exercise and obsession with weight control probably bordering on malnutrition.
u forgot hardcore weight loss drugs
broken leg, hip, elbow, ribs… fucking hell, that’s a solid slam.
Yeah, all that would do it.
i meant pelvis, not hip.
6 or half really… ouch.
Wout VA, beats the best TT in the world yesterday, then rocks up to crack the sprint ahead of Bennett & alaphillipe, now he is the No1 helper for kruisweik in the mountains…versatile or what? PS what else could he do on a big pro team with actual support
Looking forward to WVA v VdP
I for one welcome our new cyclocross overlords.
this is elite content imo.
how come it takes UCI 8 years to know something I, and everyone else with more than three brain cells, knew in 2011? still, cant get too mad because that was some extreme sensations.
he’s got as much support as he deserves (and this coming from a legit WVA fanboi). He’s getting a good intro and also earning his WT stripes by supporting some very good GC contenders. He has a solid run in the classics (which is what he was hired for) and now he’s being settled in for a support role at the big tours. Between Roglic/Kruiswijk in the hills/GC and Groaningwagon in sprints he will be doing a Durbo and towing the bunch a lot. But that’s a pretty good start for someone in their first year and on a pretty good team. His team mate Mike Teunissen is a U23 CX WC (and definite talent) and he hasnt had half the opportunities that Wout’s had. Even Lars Boom had a really slow start.
I suspect he wasn’t originally supposed to race the tour but someone didnt get fit/isnt riding well. He is going to race the tour then ride london and he’s back to CX prep. I’m pretty sure his WT contract has him doing a decent stint at CX at least for one more year (but on what bike )
Matthieu is doing what he always does… have fun. He’s qualified for the olympics and the flight to the UK is shorter than the flight to the US (where each respective WC is).
So what are the odds that Richie will make it to stage 10 this year? Anyone taking bets? I have NFI who has the form.
