Froome and Wiggins TUEs

  1. I'm not sure about that, other than in the UK media; which is still a minor player in terms of cycling.

    I don't think he'll ever get "legend" status irrespective of what he does, other than with Sky fanboys/converts from golf.

    I can think of some who should be committed. Seriously.

    I'm not sure what you are on about; there's no need to be a cyclist to have an awareness of why Froome is unlikely to ever achieve "legend" status; fanboys/converts from golf <other convert sports are available> don't seem to get this.

    British multiple grand tour winners are ten a penny so I see why you'd think that ....

  5. As I said, I don't think it matters other than him being British and people thinking that Grand Tours are the most important thing in cycling.

    Seems a common enough theory on here that needs to have any basis in truth.

    Difficult to summon much sympathy for Vegni, given this demonstrates what a bull$h1tter he must be, based on his previous flat denials of start fees or any 'relationship based on economics' with Sky around Froome entering the Giro......... maybe he's been infected by the Sky bull$h1tting machine.

    Stop bull$h1tting, you morons!

    As @rich p said above, both have a legitimate place in cycling but a hell of a lot of die hard cycling fans put more emphasis on the classics than grand tours .
