Froome ready to reveal Tour de France data but questions intense scrutiny
July 21, 2015 (08:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
On the bike, Chris Froome (Team Sky) only had to repel attacks from his rivals rather than any roadside fans during stage 16 to Gap, and was able to put another day behind him in the yellow jersey. Off the bike, it was the Tour de France leader who went on the offensive against the journalists who have stirred up questions surrounding his performance, and is now ready to release his power data to back up his assertions that he races clean. Late after Sunday's stage Froome had thanked British television channel ITV for questioning Laurent Jalabert about his innuendo and speculation about Froome's performances in this year's Tour de France. He posted a link to the video interview of Jalabert shirking away from questions and wrote: If you're going to deny making statements about me maybe you should remember that you're being recorded on Live TV/Radio. He reiterated his thoughts on Jalabert and former dopers working as television pundits during questions with the written media at the Tour de France.ADVERTISEMENT Personally I'm not a fan of that. I've made that very clear, Froome said. I don't believe these are best role models and spokesman for the sport in this day and age. Of course, that's my personal opinion. When asked, Froome also revealed his racing weight during the Tour de France and said he was in favour of other data being published after Team Sky manager Dave Brailsford had said at the start of the stage he was willing to reveal some of Froome's numbers. "My weight fluctuates on a daily basis and on the fuelling strategy for the day and also on the fluids I take in. It varies on a daily basis from 67 to 68kg, Froome said.

Tour de France stage 16 quotes: Thomas 'shaken but alright' after crashing on descent into Gap
July 21, 2015 (08:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Stage 16 of the Tour de France saw Ruben Plaza land a solo stage win for his Lampre-Merida team in Gap on Monday. After riding into the day's breakaway, he escaped his companions on the last climb overthe Col de Manse, and held off a chasing Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo), who ended up finishing second place for a sixteenth time in the French Grand Tour. Meanwhile, Team Sky's Geraint Thomas crashed on the descent into Gap but managed to get back on his bike and safely make it to the finish line without losing his place in the overall classification. Geraint Thomas (Team Sky), crashed on the descent into GapADVERTISEMENT "I'm alright, I'm a bit shaken up but fine. I've had a lot worse. It's frustrating, I tried so hard to get over the climb, I dont know why guys dont just sit where they are on descents. It was hard for me to understand." Thomas went on to speak about the crash post-stage with a sense of humour, "I guess the doctor will ask me my name and date of birth soon. Can you remember? "Chris Froome. "A nice Frenchman [pulled me out of the ditch]. They are nice here, there's a few that aren't, but a nice Frenchman. I lost my glasses as well - they don't even make them anymore.

Brailsford considers releasing limited Froome data on Tour de France rest day
July 21, 2015 (08:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dave Brailsford has said that Team Sky may release limited data into the public domain in response to some of the estimates of Chris Froomes power output that have been published during this Tour de France. Froomes performance in winning atop La Pierre-Saint-Martin last week has come under particular scrutiny, with exercise physiologist Pierre Sallet claiming on France Tlvisions "Stade 2" programme on Sunday evening that the Sky rider had produced 7.04 watts/kg during his effort. Sallet did not elaborate, however, on the methodology he had used to calculate Froomes power output. Brailsford was a guest on the show, and at the start of stage 16 in Bourg-en-Page on Monday morning, he said that he had not been told how Sallet had arrived at that figure.ADVERTISEMENT "No, no. They want transparency but they wont give you the mathematical model of the estimations that theyre using," Brailsford told a small group of reporters outside the Sky bus. "And everybody knows that when you estimate, theres a margin for error. There was a good paper published recently by Yann Le Meur about exactly that, and in the scientific paper they said there was a plus or minus 6-10% error. There are so many variables you have to take into consideration." While Froome looked to place the blame on sections of the media for the aggression displayed towards his team by supporters on the roadside in recent days, Brailsford repeated his calls for the UCI to add a power analysis element to its current biological passport system. "I dont think you can say that its only the media because if everybody believed in the tests, then you wouldnt be in this situation," Brailsford said. "The problem is that everybody doesnt believe in the tests, and I think thats the responsibility of the UCI " to manage things better, to be more proactive and try to think a bit outside the box maybe to find a more innovative solution to try and reassure the people."

Tour de France: Hesjedal shows promising signs in stage 15
July 20, 2015 (14:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Ryder Hesjedal (Cannondale-Garmin) came to the fore Sunday, as part of a nine-man breakaway during stage 15 of the Tour de France. The tough day was a positive sign of his improving form, despite its late arrival. Hesjedal gave chase to Matteo Trentin (Etixx-Quickstep) who jumped the group as a last ditch effort before they were swallowed by a driving peloton. The day ended in a bunch sprint with Andr Greipel (Lotto Soudal) once again the victor. [The stage] was pretty straight forward, Hesjedal told Cyclingnews. It was a classic, all in, hard day. Deep down I knew it was really likely to be a sprint but its the Tour and you still got to give it a go. The Canadian lost significant time in the first week to battle for a high place finish as he had hoped, but with a history of gaining strength in the final week of a grand tour he remains hopeful.ADVERTISEMENT Its fun to be up there, Hesjedal added. A big day to get up there and race bikes, it felt good. Like many teams at the Tour, Cannondale-Garmin is looking for stage wins and breakaways following their earlier misfortunes. Once it was clear Andrew Talansky would not see his form from a year ago, Dan Martin took his turn, finishing second and earning most aggressive rider for stage 11 before falling ill with a minor cold this week. Hesjedal says the team will continue to push forward rather than looking back on missed opportunities. For me, its always been the idea to be realistic to come in with the form. I mean the race is just so hard; weve just been focused on the day at hand. We dont really have time to kind of say whats been lucky or unlucky. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Tensions remain for Froome at Tour de France
July 20, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
A day after Chris Froome reported that he had been doused with urine by a spectator, six gendarmes were deployed to keep vigil outside the Team Sky bus ahead of stage 15 of the Tour de France in Mende. The pervading atmosphere of distrust at this Tour in microcosm. Froomes day passed without incident, as he faced no attacks from the roadside or from his overall rivals, but there would be further tension at the end of the stage in Valence, as he faced the Tours press corps, 24 hours after employing a flexible brand of logic to blame them for the urine-throwing incident. As has become his habit on this Tour, Froome again delivered an unprompted initial statement immediately on taking his seat, taking care to describe the roadside support as fantastic. Once the floor was opened to questions, however, it was put to Froome that the presence of policemen outside his bus brought back memories of the security detail assigned to Lance Armstrong and the US Postal team.ADVERTISEMENT Its not for me to say what security is needed, Froome said. Its the race organisation that puts on the events. Its their responsibility to keep the riders safe. Im obviously not involved in coordinating where police stand and all that. Im sure you can ask the question to the race organisation. If you look at any big sporting event " tennis, football, any big event " there are police all over those events, especially if fans start getting more involved in the event than they should do. So I dont think its unusual that there are police around when we are warming up or leaving the buses. On Saturday, Froome had demurred when challenged to specify the journalists whose reporting had supposedly incited a " we can only presume " otherwise reasonable man to throw urine at him as he rode past. On Sunday, a reporter revisited the topic, pointing out that he could not recall journalists writing that supporters should throw urine at riders. You didnt see any reports about suspicious performances in this years Tour de France yet? Froome asked in return. Yes, I did. But thats not the same as booing or throwing urine, the reporter replied. If people are led to believe that these performances are not legitimate, thats whats going to lead them to start booing and punching and spitting and throwing urine at riders. Thats my point, Froome said.Change Froome has been firm in rejecting allegations of wrongdoing, both in 2013 and this year, and he is unfortunate, perhaps, that the market on brazen denials was cornered by Lance Armstrong and US Postal a decade ago, meaning that protestations of innocence are inevitably met with scepticism. Times have changed, everyone knows that, Froome claimed. This isnt the Wild West that it was 10 or 15 years ago. Of course there are riders who take risks in this day and age but they are the minority. It was the other way around 10 years ago. There is no reason in this day and age for that level of suspicion to continue. There is absolutely no reason. The Sky man rejected the idea that he might have been tempted to abandon the race in the manner of Gino Bartali after he was threatened on Col dAspin the 1950 Tour, though Froome later described the actions of some spectators this past week as outrageous pointing to other incidents involving Richie Porte and Luke Rowe. I dont know what else I can do other than to speak up about it and tell people to make up their own minds about our performances rather than listening, particularly, to ex-riders who were part of this generation that only knew one way of cycling, Froome said, hinting that his ire was aimed at least in part at France Tlvisions analysts Laurent Jalabert and Cedric Vasseur, though " once again " he declined to specify precisely what reporting he deemed to be irresponsible. As I said yesterday, it was particular individuals. Im not saying the media in this general. There has been some fantastic coverage of the actual racing on this race. But as I said yesterday there are particular individuals who have very large audiences, especially on television commentary for example. And those individuals are ruining it for a lot of other people. Froomes wife, Michelle, of course, had been more forthright in apportioning blame for the lukewarm reception to his dominance of this Tour. In a brief return to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, she wrote: @JalabertLaurent @cedvasseur @lequipe @festinaboy @scienceofsport I hope you're paying attention. Ignorant, irresponsible fools. The account was hastily deleted and in the mixed zone on Sunday afternoon, Froome denied all knowledge of the tweets. No, I didnt, Froome claimed when asked if he had seen them.

Tour de France: Quintana still focussed on taking yellow jersey
July 20, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Going into the Tour de France, it was expected that Nairo Quintana (Movistar) would be able to blow the race apart with his stinging attacks in the mountains. He was the only one to get anywhere close to Chris Froome (Team Sky) on the opening day in the Pyrenees but the first signs of what he could do didn't come until the final day in the high mountains. En route to Mende on Saturday, Quintana showed again hints of the rider we hoped that we would see this July. The Colombian was ultimately unable to shake Froome again, but he would crack all of his other rivals and move himself into second place overall. Froome would put a second into Quintana on the line and nudge out the distance to the top spot but, despite seeing the yellow jersey edge further away, Quintana is not yet ready to give up on taking it back to Colombia. "I'm really happy with having climbed onto second. We knew that patience would bring this place to us, but our real goal, the one we're focused on, is taking place number one, said Quintana. We have worked hard with the team through all these days, we found a chance to gain time today and we're staying confident and determined to try some attacks when the big mountains are back, maybe still being able to go after that yellow dream.ADVERTISEMENT Quintanas teammate Alejandro Valverde was also on a good day in Mende, as he closed in on a podium position. Valverde was initially put in trouble by Quintanas attack, although the 35-year-old says it was a conscious decision to drop back in order not to pull their rivals back to Quintana. Valverde eventually caught Alberto Contador - his nearest rival in the GC - and despite apparent protestations from Tinkoff-Saxo riders not to attack him, Valverde did just that and increased his advantage over the former Tour de France winner to 21 seconds. This is a competition, Alberto needs to understand that, Valverde said following the stage, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais. I and my team are working to win the Tour with Quintana, but if I make the podium it would be incredible. He later said in a press release from his team: When I reached him, Contador asked me for some turns and I told him I couldn't take them, because Nairo was ahead. This is racing: he's doing his job, mine is to take care of Nairo, and he was the one who had to push. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Contador improving after moving into 5th place at Tour de France
July 19, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Despite losing time to Chris Froome (Team Sky) and Movistar duo Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana on the final climb of stage 14, Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) argues that his condition is steadily improving " to the point where making attacks is no longer out of the question. When Quintana first went clear, Contador opted to stick close to Froome on the ascent to Mende " where he has twice won in Paris-Nice, in 2007 and 2010 " although he was finally dropped by the Briton on the upper-half of the climb. Caught by Valverde near the summit, the Madrileo was unable to follow when the Movistar rider powered away, rolling across the line with 19 seconds lost to Froome, 18 to Quintana and 15 to Valverde.ADVERTISEMENT On the plus side for Contador, he has gained enough time on Geraint Thomas (Sky) to move into fifth overall, and has recouped some of his losses on Tejay Van Garderen (BMC Racing) as well. All in all, after his stinging defeat in the Pyrenees, he believes that represents a gain. Froome finally proved too much for me, Contador said, I tried to hold on but it just wasnt possible. So Ive lost some time, but the important thing is Im feeling stronger, different to how I was earlier in the race. I can stand on the pedals and even think about attacking now. Ive lost time, but theres still a long way to go to Paris, and I can still turn in some good rides. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Haas continues Cannondale-Garmins aggressive second week at the Tour de France
July 18, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Cannondale-Garmin entered the Tour de France with the triumvirate of Ryder Hesjedal, Dan Martin and Andrew Talansky to target the general classification. A jour sans on the first summit finish of the Tour ended any final aspirations the team had of a top-five overall, and the emphasis has now squarely turned to attacking the pack. After Martins valiant efforts on stage 11, Nathan Haas took it upon himself to infiltrate the already formed breakaway with Pierre-Luc Prichon (Bretagne-Sch Environnement) to continue the teams aggressive stance. Haas spent the majority of the first rest day in bed recovering from the diarrhea that had him suffering through the first week. The Tour debutant, however, with three Grand Tours under his belt, found the strength in almost 40-degree temperatures during stage 13 into Rodez, to attack his breakaway companions and strike out on his own. It went just as he had planned at the Muret departure several hours earlier.ADVERTISEMENT I put my head down and went hard. It's not always something you can plan on doing, it's something you have to decide on the road, Haas said. I had a mission this morning, I was going to be in the breakaway. A rider like myself in a Grand Tour doesnt actually get too many opportunities to go for the win so today I put the art of war into play and tried to be away from the guys who are faster then me in the finish. Unfortunately, they were faster than me in the end but it was fun trying. After Cannondale-Garmins disastrous day to La Pierre-Saint-Martin, director Charley Wegelius told Cyclingnews that the team would need to implement a new strategy for the remaining stages of the race. After Martins combative ride to Cauterets. Haas efforts reiterated that the team is going to be an aggressive fore to Paris. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Tour de France: Froome expects attacks on the road to Mende
July 18, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After three tough days in the Pyrenees, Chris Froome (Team Sky) and the other podium contenders would have had the long haul from Murat to Rodez earmarked as a transitional stage, but at the modern Tour de France, it seems, such luxuries no longer exist. The day began promisingly enough in that regard, when an early break featuring rgional de l'tape Alexandre Geniez (FDJ) sallied clear amid soaring temperatures, but as the puncheurs teams laboured to peg them back in the finale, the yellow jersey and his rivals were compelled to assume their habitual positions at the front. Froome was present and correct when the peloton fragmented on the sharp final rise to the finish on the Cte Saint-Pierre, and he went on to place sixth on the stage, seven seconds down on winner Greg Van Avermaet (BMC), and at the head of a small group that included Tejay van Garderen (BMC) and Nairo Quintana (Movistar).ADVERTISEMENT What started as easier day turned into a mad dash to line as the peloton panicked when it hadnt caught the break, Froome said. It definitely ended being a selective day, a hard day, and there were tired legs given the last three stages weve done. Everyone was hoping for an easy day but it didnt happen. The Tour reached the fringe of the Massif Central by days end. The roads in this region are both undulating and notoriously heavy, though the greatest obstacle of all turned out to be the extreme heat. The canicule sweeping across France exacted a toll on the peloton. In sepia-tinted eras, they might have stopped to cool themselves in the Agout river en route, but the television age offers no such respite. The heat was a big factor, it was 40 degrees, Froome said. We were sending guys back to the car to get drinks every 10 to 15 minutes and even that wasnt enough. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Tour de France: Chris Froome's yellow Pinarello Dogma F8
July 18, 2015 (06:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Chris Froomes (Team Sky) Pinarello Dogma F8 got a new yellow paint scheme to match his yellow jersey. The leader of the Tour de France has had yellow stripes added to his seat tube, top tube, forks and seat stays. His nickname 'Froomey' has been emblazoned on the top tube also with a rhino appearing on the side of the headtube " a nod towards his childhood in Kenya. It was rumoured that Froome would get to ride the bike during stage 12 but it was deemed too risky to change bikes before one of the most crucial stages of the entire race. The F8 was launched ahead of last years Tour de France and is the favoured bike of the team. For the F8, Pinarello have developed a truncated aerofoil tube in Torayca T1100 1k carbon. The tube profiles are dubbed FlatBack and are one of a number of aerodynamic enhancements around the frame, such as integrated seat post clamp, internal cable routing and even the position of the bottles on the bike (the seat-tube has three bottle holder fixings giving riders two mounting options, the lower one being more aero).ADVERTISEMENT However, great care was taken to protect the ride characteristics of the bike " a specific request from the team apparently, and this 560mm frame matches the precise geometry of Froomes previous 65.1. The fork is a radically different from most road frames. It was lifted largely unchanged from the Bolide time trial bike and curves out in the legs to minimise air turbulence.
