Re: Froome's legend status

For that reason, as an example before moving to the Froome question, I would never put Indurain in a "legend" category for his GT wins - since they were boring and largely based off TT dominance. (We will leave the question of their chemical basis for another thread.)

I'll admit that i'm an Indurain Fanboy and i'll accept that a lot of his winning came from his dominance in the TT but he wasn't just that. He put up some other amazing performances. Hautacam in '94 and Liege and La Plagne in '95. They may all have been second places but the showed he was someone who wasn't just about TTing. I would also say that Indurains record in one day races was in some ways better than the current crop of GC riders twice 2nd at the worlds and also a 3rd.
