In the past I have written about Chris Froome and his development throughout his career. What is integral is the glaring gap between his arrival at Sky in 2010 and his startling ascension at the 2011 Vuelta. Between those two points in time, Froome went through a grey patch of results as he struggled to compete in the World Tour. His performances were so dismal that Sky were considering releasing him at the end of the year and indeed the managing director of Garmin – Jonathan Vaughters – has said that he was in the process of recruiting Froome prior to the Vuelta.
The 2013 cycling season has been riddled with speculation surrounding the legitimacy of Chris Froome's magisterial Tour De France victory. Not only on twitter and elsewhere online but high profile people have made there views public.
Sunday night saw Chris Froome ride home along the Champs-Élysées, arms around his fellow teammates, as the curtain fell on what was a remarkable 100th Tour de France. The race had it all; the failure of a two time winner, the rise of a Columbian wonder climber, a new Champs-Élysées champion and the second British Tour de France victor in two years.
