Lanterne Rouge and Cameron Jeffers react to the news that seven-time Grand Tour winner Chris Froome will leave Team Ineos at the end of the season to bring an end to a decade-long association with Sir Dave Brailsford’s team.
The four-time Tour de France winner is set to join the Israel Start-Up Nation squad for next season after seeing his leadership role within what was Team Sky challenged by the emergence of both Geraint Thomas and the young Egan Bernal, who have won the past two editions of the Tour between them.

Do ITV know they have hired someone with multiple videos hating in British riders and calling them all drug users while worshipping other riders with actual convictions. I’ll send some links to ITV and report back in their comments.

"it's about leadership" ... or is it about a 5 million/year long term contract for a man coming off one of the most serious cycling injuries of the past few years? I'm sure the leadership situation mattered, but I'd bet anything it was financial decision first and foremost. I've seen too many journalists (at other outlets more than in this video) unquestioningly accept Brailsford's comments. It's Dave Brailsford! Respect the man, but strategy comes before honesty for him.

If I were in Froome's shoes and given the fact that lneos has multiple leaders and that Bernal is not on board with riding for Froome...I would leave. Israel needs to beef up their squad to support a grand tour rider. Also Froome is in the twilight of his career. Should be an interesting tour. Between Ineos and Jumbo?

Chris will jump on the sky train once his domestiques are burnt out. Chris will be in great condition. The global pandemic that forced the tour to be delayed I believe aided him. He’s a stubborn son of a bitch.

This is the perfect disguise. The tdf peloton will all ignore Chris because: 1. We are now saying his Old 2. We are now all saying his on his own. 3. Let's focus on Barnal and Thomas...they are young and fresh. Plus the team is behind them. Chris needs this. It removes the panic from him. Makes him angry and try to prove a point..and yeah. The Ineos mechanical wont work. Chris will show us.

If Froome early transfers to ISN before 2020 tour, he has a good shot at winning. He could spill the beans about all of Ineos' tactics and could get the whole team behind him without leadership conflicts.

I think maybe the biggest thing that wasn't talked about so much here was Ineos's perspective in not re-signing Froome and/or giving him the ability to take sole leadership: probably a calculation they made considering the hand they already had in store - Bernal, and then G as a great backup option, albeit not much younger than Froome. Further, besides the fact Froome is 35, and his best years likely are behind him - there's no reason to think a slightly declined Froome couldn't compete for a 5th TdF with a super strong team: Ineos. So that would leave me to believe that Ineos has seen the proof (or lack thereof) in the pudding; his numbers - even after full recovery from that horrific crash - just aren't the same as they were. They're probably aren't even in the same ballpark. Even if Froome's FTP, for instance, is 90-95% of what it was pre-crash, Ineos knows that's not enough to win the Tour - and there's a good chance he might not even make top 5 with that. It's a tough decision, I get that. But I think it was the right one considering their roster. I have no clue how Froome will fare with ISN, but it should be interesting.

At TDF the key becomes who’s in contention at the start of the 3rd week. Froome is the master at that and I think all 3 will work to stay safe and in the top 10 till then. In the third week he who’s leading will get supported without burning too many matches.

Perhaps... Froome’s crash has left him unable to compete at the top level. Ineos and Froome decided they’d pretend their was a leadership battle. Froome left on a big money deal knowing that he wouldn’t be able to compete with the best. Just a theory. Hopefully wrong.

Froome has produced some of his best racing when his back's against the wall (so to speak). I think we could be in for a big surprise... He won't be racing for Ineos; he will be racing for Chris Froome, the greatest GC rider of his generation.

The big question is -- "Is it even physically possible for Froome to come back from his injuries?" They were bad. But if he has recovered fully, then it may be a question of the kinds of friendships he has formed with his team members over the years. Strong friendships will equal strong support. Froome may see this as his last real chance at getting to five Tour victories since Ineos is such a strong team. Where's my popcorn? Bernal gets time in the mountains; Froome gets time in the TT; Thomas rides for Bernal.

Must say when Team Sky became Ineos it broke the magic...for me. Sky were legendary,amazing. Big Chemical company? Hmmm. Hope Chris Froome can flourish and have a couple more winning years. Ineos too many chiefs perhaps. Love to see Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome on the podium this year.

Best signing I've ever seen from a team in my entire life. Can you imagine it, waking up and being told... this year you will be joined by the genuine best in the business... the inimitable.... Lanterne Rouge! Great job ITV Sport! You've just massively raised the quality level of your cycling reporters. (Just don't ask him to be neutral when Quintana is around!!)

I can't see G taking leadership. It would be massive for Ineos for Froome to take a 5th tour with them and join the all time greats. G just doesn't have the same winning desperation, or the ability level as Bernal and Froome. He will be a ridiculously powerful domestique, and having him there will be the difference between them winning it and not, and if Froome or Bernal fall off he will become a very good backup rider. (let's face it, even as a domestique he will be in touching distance of the lead). So Froome and Bernal joint leadership. An incredible time for cycling, and many genuine contenders for this years tour across a few teams.

I really want for Chris to win his 5th tdf but Cameron is right, this move is good for racing. The sky train dulled competition. It would be nice for them to loose their edge, which we started to see last year - even though Bernal won.

My flash-> nobody will work for him this year, a hope that Columbians set him back in the TT enough to shake his dream & work for the team. If he's a champion he'll support the youngster, that's his duty to the sport at many levels, his stature in the history assured. Team Israel seems like a good move but why bring it up before the Tour, it implies ruffled feathers in the nest? ... crazy.

I think it makes sense for Froome to leave, it's clear now that Bernal is the 'favourite child' of the team. Prediction for the Tour: I'd love for Froome to win, and I think it's possible, but I'm thinking a top 10 is the realistic expectation.

Great video. I feel like LR has carved a great value niche in cycling commentary. I fully expect Matt Keenan and Robbie McEwan to do the race, but can see LR providing post-race analysis and insight. It's crack for cycling fans. GCN has become a billboard for brands, these two deliver real value for your clicks, likes, and subscribes.

I still think froome can do it still as he is still a great TT rider so will still always gain time there and I think he will be super motivated to prove a point. In the next couple of years I hope he goes full Contador and starts doing crazy attacks 50 or so km from the finish like he did in the giro.

I don't think Froome's position at Ineos was tenable for much longer. He's been the top dog in the team since 2012 and he's 35, so a possible 2 more seasons around the top. Bernal is Ineos' future, as he's said repeatedly. G has at least 2 more seasons at the top. So, yeah, Froome and Ineos didn't really have a choice. Sad, but it is what it is.
Fidji Merveille

Ineos decision is understandable because Froome wanted sole leadership and they can't because Bernal is 23 and won the tour so obviously the leadership would have to be shared between 3 guys in the future and the decision was never about money or the injury of Froome
