Everyone Thinks Froome is Doping

The world wide web has erupted in skepticism coinciding with Chris Froom’s high voltage performances at this year’s Tour. We are praising journalists for making accusations of doping, or as they swing it, “asking the hard questions.” Watts per kilogram, data measuring times up certain climbs and comparing the predictions of present to the results of past, blah blah blah…it’s all circumstantial. Is is that hard to believe someone can pull of performances like this without cheating? I certainly can.

Everyone thinks Froome is doping. They couldn’t be more wrong.

  1. I’m pretty sure that photo has been altered. If not where can I buy a bottle of Tabasco that’s bigger then my leg?

  2. It’s hard to believe but until they nail him I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

  3. All my doubt is gone…look at the sleeve on that jersey…it’s baggy…one sick puppy to do that to himself.

    Technically perhaps Froome and Wiggins aren’t breaking a rule but they’re doing something odd to end up looking that sick. Gross.

  4. good point guest, shitty for the sport if the only guys that can win the tour look like froome and wiggins, haven’t seen such piss poor physique’s in yellow since the “the chicken” was in all doped up and making mole hills out of mountains

    now LeMond is generally considered the greatest “off the couch” guy of all-time, but judging from the pic of him on the podium yesterday i’m thinking even my sorry ass might be able put a hurt on ‘em – still, you only have to watch the ’89 World Championships to know just how bad a mofo he was back in the day – LeMonster

  5. Taking the feedbag @ the bottom of the mtn is still cheating. I keep waiting for his interview where he is quoted as saying “greedy little hobbitses will never get my precious.”

  6. That’s the podium jersey, they never size those right. Have you seen them unzip, those sparkly vampires my woman likes to watch in the movies look like pro wrestlers compared to the pro cyclist. Hell, my 7 year old has more pec and arm definition, he’d beat them like rented mules in an arm wrasslin contest. Remember, the sauce is only illegal if it is on the list, everything else is fair game, especially if you will process it out before doping control.

  7. I was also having flashbacks of “the chicken” watching froome the other day…

    and of Saunier’s Ricco and Piepoli after watching Porte and Froome tag team the climbers.

    But hey, who knows. Innocent until guilty here, right?

  8. LOL…and now we get the “reason”…he has a parasite…one that apparently attacked his arms and required medicine that caused him to lose the weight required before he was allowed to join Sky.

    At least it is not as serious as a vanishing twin.

  9. And everyone will be proven correct. We’ve all seen this song and dance before.

  10. I’m absolutely skeptical of Froome. How can you not be? The fact that he’s beating the pants off Contador and Valverde doesn’t look so good (and yes, it’s absolutely a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation as far as that goes. Tough shit). And the last rider to win multiple stages while wearing yellow (other than Wiggins in last year’s snoozefest, which I don’t so much mind believing) was HWWNBN.

    Are Froomey’s feelings hurt by the skepticism? Like I say, tough shit. No one in bicycling gets the benefit of the doubt anymore. No one.

  11. Its just a matter of time…truth has a nasty habit of rearing its ugly head..and he’s no exeption to that
