Twas a little jokette. Though interestingly David Millar says that having talked with Contador, Froome's the only rider who scares the Spanish bird-botherer

Similar to Andy but can TT miles better. Defo a challenger regardless of how he got to that level.

Contador really does bring out the Trolls doesn't he?

Yep. I don't like Contador - not sure why as it goes back way before the Clen case and I agree with Frenchie's opinion of him as an exciting rider - but even I'm fed up of hearing the drug cheat / steak comments every time his name gets mentioned. I know he hasn't raced much since his ban but there hasn't been that much to suggest he's still doping - possibly THAT Vuelta stage but I'm not even sure that was really OTT compared to rides in the past. There's worse out there, they just haven't been as successful.

Think Frenchie really brings out the trolls would be much more accurate...

I don't trust him and I wish he would fess up, I'd have a lot more respect for him but you can't take it away from him that he's an exciting rider to watch. Looking forward to seeing him race this season

Well, to go about casting aspersions on Froome's legitimacy as a rider is a bit rich right after you have done the internet equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears, shouting out la-la-la-la-la-la about Contador. It annoys me, as Froome has done little to justify such tawdry accusations other than mature in his late, not early, twenties. FF should also be a little more circumspect since he moans about the Contador jibes all the time but that is hypocrisy for you.

It will be wonderful to see Mr Contador on the start line at the TDF. Then, when it is finished, we can all put threads like this to bed.

Nah, if he wins it then the same faces will claim either:

A) He was doped
B) Wiggins wasn't there
C) Both.
