Froome’s Greatest Moment Ruined By The Sport’s History

Another British winner of the Tour de France puts Froome into the history books, being the first Brit to win more than one Tour de France. Though this isn’t the end of Froome this year as he considers participating in the Veulta a España.

 

It shouldn’t go unmentioned that Froome won by a margin that would easily make him favourite for next year’s Tour, which is what Sky intended on doing. After the disaster of 2014, Team Sky refocused on bringing back top quality performances into their team, the backroom staff was shuffled around and riders were brought in to give leader Froome stronger support.

 

Among Sky’s new approach and Froome commitment for improvement, there are still doubters leading to horrible situations like being spitting at Froome and throwing urine at him. The reaction has also applied pressure to all the teams involved in the Tour de France to release rider data. What we should be seeing as Froome’s greatest career moment has become very sour.

 

Also this year was a real eye opener in the sense that Nibali and Contador don’t look like they could be a threat to Froome anymore. The only prospect at the moment is that of Nairo Quintana, who at the age of 23, finished first in the young riders classification and second in the GC. He didn’t show performances like two years ago but surely with better preparation and maybe reducing time losses in time trials will make him without doubt one of the favourites for next year’s Tour de France.
