    If anyone can Froome can, but these things are never a formality.
    If he stays upright he's won it just by turning up.That I would put my house on!

    TBH It was difficult to see beyond G to win in a one week race if he stayed upright and didn't have une jour sans - he manage the latter an overcame the former. But it makes you wonder what Adam Yates could have done if Mitchelton-Scott had been closer in the TTT.

    Trouble is he doesn't usually manage to avoid his une jour sans in a 3 week tour.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    The TDF is going to be a wonder to behold - both Yates twins, G, Froome and then all the others who aint from the UK.

    Shame about old Steve Cummings and his breathing issues - seems he might not be in the TDF now.

    All bodes well for a good TDF.

    I've just read the news item on the Crterium Dauphine on the forum. Is it just me or does Tao Geohegan Hart look a lot older than G even though he's 10 years younger?
