    He's probably the worlds best time trialist, a GT winner and as fresh as a daisy, so near a minute on 2nd and a minute something on a knackered version of another of the worlds best time trialists and GT winners seems pretty fair to me?
    Quite.

    I reckon he could beat Froome in a grand tour. If it was a level playing field with equally matched teams.

    It would be close but Froome is a better climber and is a good enough time trialist not to lose more than he gains in the high mountains. Money is still on the Dog but Tom Tit to run him close.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    I know we have covered this before, but why 'Tom Tit' again?

    Unusual build for climbing? Tom D is 6ft 1in tall and weighs 71kg .... Chris F is the same height and weighs 69kg.

    I must be thick, still don't get it.

    Yep, and Froome again is taller than the average out and out climber non?

    Its a reference to his unfortunate roadside bathroom break on the Giro. "I'm going for a Tom Tit..."
