Froomy should have grabbed it while he had the chance . He will not get another chance like that to win the tour . Wiggo has no chance unless theres another big pile up again and if that happens who will sky opt for .
If Contador was riding for sky he would have been gone up the road orders or not. Zoomy missed his chance .

Wiggins not going to the Tour to win it and show respect to the yellow jersey is weak as piss.
The fat lady hasn't sung yet, and Froome may be no Lemond, but let's see whether Wiggins does an Hinault to Froome. Of course, they may both be wasted by others in the field.

:D Yeah, Wiggo was never giving up that easy. I'd love to see him give it a real go and make the 100th edition a super battle of the champions of the past few years. Maybe even Andy will put his pelvis back together and be competitive?

good looking kit. A pity that it (hopefully) will change before too long.

The Sky team leader may be dictated by how the tour progresses. It is one thing if Wiggins and Froome are clearly the strongest as last year and can decide who they want to be #1. It is another if someone like Contador breaks away on a difficult mountain stage and only Froome can stay on his wheel while Wiggins falls a few minutes behind. Or vice-versa if Wiggins proves stronger.

Wiggins, " I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure! ' ......I guess why wouldn't he want to go and defend his tdf crown?

I'm with geraldatwork to a point but I don't think either he or Froome will cope with a fit Contador if he's on form ( or on clenbuterol for that matter ) While they look down at their powermeters, racing by numbers, he will be long gone.

I don't know , maybe I'm just in a funny mood.....!
