#LAVUELTA: THE PHANTOM OF FROOM ENGINE

These days a video of Chris Froome show that the British would have mounted a small engine inside his bicycle. The video can be found at this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=66&v=_UNHibTi1wA and within a few hours it has had hundreds of thousands of views that trigger the most disparate reactions. In fact, there are a couple of considerations that need to be made. The stretch in which the shot is taken is downhill and therefore it is normal for the athlete to take speed. At the second 26 of the same video it can be noticed that even a Cannondale knit runner moves in the same thrown spot and without pedaling. A runner like Froome who […]

#LAVUELTA: 2 PENALIDAD SIN ARQUERO… PERO TAMBIÉN HAY SUPLEMENTARIOS

#LAVUELTA: 2 PENALIDAD SIN ARQUERO… PERO TAMBIÉN HAY SUPLEMENTARIOS

SIERRA NEVADA (SPA): 2 penaltis para Chris Froome en esta Vuelta Española. Esta metáfora futbolística nos permite entender mejor la oportunidad que se le presenta. Comienza hoy con la llegada a Sierra Nevada, que tiene una subida apta para las características británicas y continúa el martes con los 41 km de contrarreloj. Las ocasiones más calurosas para contrarrestar la ventaja en la clasificación general que hoy en día es de sólo 55′. Ayer Vincenzo Nibali, gracias al 3er lugar, consiguió recuperar 4′. Ciertamente pocos, pero algo bueno para la moral. Si hoy todavía no pasa nada, el martes se celebrará el contrarreloj para hacer más ajustes a la prueba española. […]

SIERRA NEVADA (SPA): 2 penalty for Chris Froome in this Vuelta Espana. This football metaphor allows us to better understand the opportunity that is presented to him. It begins today with the arrival at Sierra Nevada which has a climb suitable for British characteristics and continues on Tuesday with the 41 km time-trial. Hottest occasions to offset the lead in the overall classification that today is only 55″. Yesterday Vincenzo Nibali, thanks to the 3rd place aboard, managed to recover 4″. Certainly few but a good thing for morale. If today still does not happen anything, there will be the time-trial on Tuesday to make further adjustments to the Spanish race. A slightly […]

#LAVUELTA: WHAT ABOUT FAIRPLAY? NO, A RACE IS A RACE

#LAVUELTA: WHAT ABOUT FAIRPLAY? NO, A RACE IS A RACE

Chris Frome snorts, misses a gear and sees the chain jumping … then he changes the bicycle and starts again. He put too much energy needing to return in the peloton, so he force on pedals but the low lucidity in the curve makes him fall. The skill, the real one, is to keep the cold blood to be able to regain the mental serenity after the fall and challenge the tension of those who just made a double mistake on live TV. In the end he is the one who has everything to lose as he is the strongest, but he is still in advantage over the opponents in the overall standings, and with a […]
