I recently flew with a low-cost airline. On the back of all the seats they had an ad that started with "the sky is NOT the limit !" Looking at recent events in Le Tour de France I'd say that Sky is the new limit in aham aham sporting ... training principles.
It all started on Saturday, with a better than US Postal slashing of the peloton and an outsprinting of Cadel Evans, winner of classics and such (the stage had the profile of a classic). It was a bit quiet on Sunday but today ... OMG ! Both Froomie and Wiggins trashed Fabian Cancellara in an ITT. Fabian - multiple ITT winner, world champion and olympic champion and so on.
Best in the mountains, best in the ITT. And it's a Sky duo, poised for a stunning 1-2 in Paris. To quote the Romanian Eurosport commentators: "Sky are really shameless !!!" Well I guess the new aproach to training is amazing, their new trainer coming from a swimming background is awesome and it's all legit.
If I were Cadel Evans I would fight hard for 3rd place. In a few years it might mean an yellow jersey.
