I fully understand, that Froome was probably not preparing for this race like others.
But he was on a much higher level beforehand, so it's still not normal to get dropped.
As far as I know he's interested in the Worlds - being out of shape now seems strange to me.

but it's just my feelings, I'm no Tim Kerrison (or who). :)

Henao designated as team leader for the Vuelta even though Uran is also down to ride, which maybe suggests the latter is choosing it as training for the Worlds. No Wiggins or Froome; that was expected.


Makes more sense to support the guy who isn't leaving

Yes, didn't make sense at first until you pointed that out. I'd forgot Uran was leaving.

Funny one from road.cc, Sagan's Champs bike with 'personal' tubs (read Veloflex I reckon, not team supplier Kenda). I picked up some used Fulcrum Zero tubs recently with 'Specialized' tubs, logo around the same place, obviously Veloflex Carbons.

Why is he out of shape? Being dropped isn't all about the legs. Sometimes it's in the head.

+1. I'd say it was more a matter of, "Do I really want to do this?" Also, if he wants to be ready for Worlds, we don't know what his schedule is dictating for him to peak/be in good form. Obviously this race is only for training and occasionally helping out.

Doesn't look like Froome is riding to win this race. Yesterday he was going back to the car to get bottles for other guys, namely Joe D who is the highest placed rider for Sky at the moment.

If this board is representative of even 1/100th of the shit Wiggo dealt with then I understand why he is leaving road for the track.

Chava to IAM apparently...

OPQS has Vandenbergh and Stybar stepping up, IAM needs relevance, Chava can cash in on his last few years. Sounds like a good one for all involved.

What do you mean KW?

It's an interesting move - pretty rare to see a endurance guy go back to the track exclusively after making the switch to road.

That is a pretty interesting move for Wiggo. He might have to put on some more weight for track too! Sky seems to have quite a few guys that can be GC contenders and making all that work is not easy. Don't know how important it is for Wiggo to be on a British team as a Brit but maybe he would have more success on another team.

I was wondering if Wiggins had enough of that must-be-very-crazy diet he was on.

Dombrowski was who they were riding for, wasn't he?
