Froome looms

Great to see Chris Froome take the lead in the TA, having taken a stage yesterday. He is the kind of aggressive rider that can set a stage race alight. Probably way to early for this to say anything about the Tour, but it  is great to see him in such combative mood this early in the year.

Sky are once again looking formidable, with Porte taking Paris- Nice, they have some serious strength in depth. But, personal wish. I would love to see an Ian Stannard or a Geraint Thomas show in one of the cobbled classics this year. If I made a pact with the Devil, I would sell a Wiggins Giro win for Thomas to take Paris-Roubaix. Probably makes me a bad person, but so be it.
