All I remember is Nibali throwing a water bottle at Froome and Froome throwing a hissy fit because Nibali went stage hunting while he was out of the GC picture.

Now I get why Nibali attacked Froome in the Stage 19 of the 2015 Tour de France when he had a mechanical 😂

Didn't this start when Nibali mistook Froome for toppling onto him mid climb? Then wrongly he threw the bottle at Chris Yeah, don't be expecting to get away with that. That incident & Nibali's Vuelta draughting aren't his finest hours.

I think you are right. Is this the same incident that Tony Martin broke his arm or collarbone while in yellow?

Only in cycling can an 'opponent' supposedly enter your bus (ie dressing room) and rough up your star. He should have left that bus limping and with a few bruises for his trouble.

@Leona Bastet Froome is a cyclist, not a hockey player, they are different sports. In cycling you ride a bike and in hockey you run around a field with a stick. There are some good online guides to the different sports that can help show the difference.

"He should have left that bus limping and with a few bruises" Why should he, he went to have a discussion with someone. He had the discussion, he left the bus, where or why would he get bruised?

@Vince Fava I know that. I was referring to Nibali. Didn't he throw a bidon at Froome ? That was what I meant. That if a guy threw a bottle at someone and accused them of causing a crash you would expect a reaction - as in Froome going onto the bus after Nibali, from any real man e.g. a hockey player. I didn't think it was that complicated a comment to understand. Not many hockey players would shrug off having a water bottle chucked at them for no good reason. That was my point. Anyway I doubt it actually took place. Froome would tell him off but grab him by the scruff ? - not likely.

You don't have to dig too hard to find that Sagan is NOT a popular rider in the peloton. He only gets away with his reckless riding because he's such a successful rider.

It looks like his days of popularity might be ending, Le Tour coverage over the years has been good to him but they seem to be turning on him somewhat.

I was listening to this live this afternoon and great to hear it again! Hilarious and very enlightening! After the vid ends Pete went on to say he's worried Cav will be angry with him for saying this and then he reads out a text his wife has just sent him saying Cav will kill him he hears this! :) Brilliant stuff ITV4! Great coverage from Ned and the gang!

Maybe Froome mentioned Nibali having to catch a ride hanging onto a team car... Dirty cheat.

Or maybe they were talking about when Froome got kicked out of the Giro for holding onto a motorbike. That was back when he was crap before the overnight transformation.

Respect to Froome. Shows how passionate and what a winner he is beneath the taciturn exterior. The guys won 6 Grand Tours, he's eclipsed every other British cyclist imo.

Lucas Maximus No one hurled pissed at him, no one hurled “vitriolic abuse” at him, this was simply because fans heckled him for being dropped on a climb during this years’ La Route d’Occitanie. I think your stance of: “hey if someone does anything, all bets are off”... isn’t one a champion takes. And I think it’s a dangerous one... He grabbed another cyclist by the throat, he punched a fan, where is the line drawn? If someone bumps him off his line in a sprint is it fair game to run said cyclist into a barricade and risk serious injury? The reality is: putting your hands on another competitor is out of line, it’s why riders get kicked out of races for doing it. By all accounts and video footage, Nibali never even threw a bottle at Froome. He threw his bottle at the ground. Nibali has also been very vocal about not doing so. If that is indeed the case, is Froome out of line? Or still justified in his actions. I obviously don’t condone throwing urine on anyone. But, Froome didn’t get fined for hitting a fan for throwing urine... he hit another fan for being too close on another stage. You’re well within your right to defend a rider you like. I just tend to think every pro athlete is getting screamed at, vastly 99% ignore it. Thousands of cyclists have fans too close at the Tour, so few get fined for punching one. Why would a champion at the level you perceive Froome to be at, respond in such a fashion? It seems beneath him. But we can agree to disagree.

@Todd King Yes I had already guessed that. Which is clearly why you're so negative towards Froome. Anyone that knows about 'Sir' Bradley knows he was a pompous prick, although he seems to be slightly less dislikable these days since he's been humbled. Give me Froome any day.

Which in itself is funny since Nibs/Wiggo had their issues that largely got resolved

Lucas Maximus that’s actually kind of funny since I was more partial to Wiggo than Froome, lol. Small/weird world I guess.

@Todd King I personally don't consider myself to hold many traditional British values anyway. That's probably why I'm a fan of Froome and thought that Wiggins was a wanker.

@Val Apalisok OMG, Stage 11, 2012 TDF. Froome was told to go steady by Sky's DS. Froome only heard the word go. Their nearest rival, Evans, had already cracked. Nibali had nothing to do with it and finished behind Wiggins on that stage.

@Joey Baloney Nibali dodges GC rivals because he cannot beat them. He only won the 2014 TdF owing to the misfortune of Froome and Contador. And where did Nibali finish on GC in 2015? Froome had nothing to do with the Tony Martin crash and that slimey wretch got what was coming to him when Froome throttled him.

It was the same Tour when Kennaugh decided to interrupt and verbally abuse ex-pro Michael Rasmussen, when Rasmussen was doing an interview as a sports journalist.

PolitiskTeoriFan next time I see Rasmussen I will call him a drug cheat scumbag right to his face. He better keep his head down and crawl away or I’ll knock him out
PolitiskTeoriFan 2 måneder siden
@HkFinn83 Rasmussen being a doper did not warrant this behavior from Kennaugh. It is simply unacceptable and deeply unprofessional, coming from an athlete, to verbally abuse someone because of their viewpoints. Kennaugh should have known better at the time and he probably regretted his actions afterwards.
HkFinn83 2 måneder siden
max power Rasmussen didn’t like getting it back, he looked at the floor like a bitch and crawled away
HkFinn83 2 måneder siden
Yep, Rasmussen was a known cheat who admitted to being a drug cheat for 12 years, accusing Geraint who has never been implicated in anything. G would be well within in his rights to knock him out.

@Piskarlo Panus Yeah well you see cyclists are tough MEN they have to be to endure what they do. There's no ballet dancers in pink tights amongst them ( might have been one now I think about it ) the adrenaline and frustration levels are through the roof . These sorts of reactions are to be expected - whether it's acceptable for the image or not.
