    Not all sweetness and love at Sky

    Good interview. He seems very genuine, but somewhat unhappy with life in general.

    I found the following comment a little surprising, especially combined with Cav's criticism of the conservative team tactics and lack of support.

    "Wiggins criticises Froome's knowledge of the sport and his tactical naivety. He also makes a point of saying that he suggested to Sutton in 2011 at the Vuelta a España, when it became obvious Froome was stronger than Wiggins, that "we should concentrate on Froomie now… The answer was, 'No, no, no. We don't have faith in him.'"

    It will be interesting to see how the team works with Froome next year as it appears that Wiggo is the only leader they really support. They wouldn't even work for Cav unless it was OK'd by Wiggo.

    In that quote Sutton overrode Wiggo, so it sounds like they won't work for anyone unless it's OK'd by Sutton.

    Wiggo's recent comments espousing lack of happiness after the tour win sound more and more like the guilt and flat taste of victory earned through improper means.

    I hate to have to agree, as there's not any (public) evidence to support this, but it does add up quite nicely doesn't it...
