You can't use Chris Froome as a justification for much regards 'normal' cyclists. His extreme riding position was used on one stage only and it's something we've not seen before. His riding position w ...

Speaking as a qualified road & time trial coach (as well as for MTB and CX) I would not advocate using a dropper post on either a road or CX bike. You'd be better off on getting some instruction o ...

I think it's a shame they can't leave the guy alone. He is being/will be tested very stringently so I'm guessing it will be very hard for him to get away with doping and he should be given the benefit ...
