For the record, Froome says that once he learned how to cut carbs and thrive on a more protein-centric diet, he no longer starves himself to make racing weight. A recent photo on Froome's Instagram, showing him on his ruby red Pinarello wearing nothing but a big smile, has me reaching further into my suitcase of mea culpa. Frankly, Froome looks healthy and happy, lean and chiseled, but hardly emaciated.
Chris Froome has all but sealed his second Tour de France title today after managing to make it up the most famous stage of the endurance event. Froom is to start tomorrow with a lead of one minute and 12 seconds and perhaps it was the sight of a bare bottom that helped him up the very hard climb after a gruelling 19 days on the bike. Alpe d'Huez normally attracts the maddest and weird of the world's cycling fans and it was no different today as this 'gentleman' decided to moon the whole entire race and actually keep up with riders.
Others still used the unfortunate incident as a platform to champion equal pay for female cyclists. Far be it from me to start an argument about equal pay for male and female athletes, but I believe that while Chasing Wheels makes a very good point, they have used one issue to bring up a relevant-but-unrelated second issue. Gold lycra does not photograph well, surprise surprise.
Vincenzo Nibali may have won the yellow jersey this year, but he had already lost the general public by the time he reached Paris. The Tour winner was left humiliated on the podium after his stage two victory, when the podium girl categorically denied him a peck on the cheek. In the video above, Ramunas Navardauskas makes a huge basketball block on a British fan seeking a selfie, sending the phone smashing to the ground. This one speaks for itself really.

Every family has that one odd member who you should be always watchful around because you never know what shenanigans they might do. Well, the cycling family has one as well. More than one, actually.
