"He can start talking about his bike position, that's still not going to get him selected" - Israel - Premier Tech boss slams Chris Froome

Chris Froome has not been at the same level as past years recently. There are varying reasons for this but Froome's excuse that his bike position was to blame has been slammed by the Israel - Premier Tech boss Sylvan Adams.

“Does what he says sound credible?”, asks Adams on the RadioCycling podcast. "Does it make sense for someone who has won seven Grand Tours to claim that his saddle position is off by an inch or whatever he says? Does that sound credible for someone who is not even released on the last climbs, but on one of the first climbs?"

Froome is lucky to still be racing given the brutal crash he suffered a number of years ago whilst riding for Team Sky. Nevertheless, Israel - Premier Tech took a gamble on the Brit although it sadly hasn't quite paid off for Adams.

"We've been very generous with Chris in terms of helping him, trying to give him the best possible equipment, the best possible conditions... He can start talking about his bike position, that's still not going to get him selected for a deliver a Grand Tour," Adams slams. "That will only happen if he is able to compete and prove that he is a relevant force. And we're not even talking about winning grand tours anymore, but just about being a useful teammate."
