    He wants to win 3 grand tours in a row like Contador did.

    Yep, unfortunately there's that. Froomey has TDF'17 and Vuelta'17 but if he loses his case (and wins Giro'18), he'll be left with TDF only.

    Right oh, first things first, top marks to PRS for following the correct naming convention =)

    As said, Froome is trying to step where few others have by winning 3 tours on the bounce. The organiser of the Giro has apparently said he wants Froome there and will consider Froome the winner should he come first and regardless of any would be suspensions.

    TomDom has apparently cut fructose out of his diet in an attempt to stop the sh!t hitting the fans. According to GCN anyways.

    Of course he does - it's called publicity

    What else could he say if he wants Froome to turn up!

    It's probably a healthy position to maintain in fairness.

    Certainly where pro cycling is concerned! (or indeed any professional sport, most of them are at it as far as I can tell)
