Seems more wind in the sails for this one

What a curious sight it would be to see those unmistakable legs, arms and downward-tilted head in a different team kit, racing against his former handlers and support crew, not to mention the teammates themselves.

It would really put to the test the notion of Brailsford & Co's superior preparation and tactics. No one knows Froome better than they, so how might they use that same knowledge to defeat him (assuming that Froome is able to attain his previous level of performance)?

And what of Froome's approach on a different team? Would he simply continue to mimic all that he's done during his Sky/Ineos career, or meld that into a new program altogether? Is it Brailsford, Kerrison or Froome to take credit for all the victories?

Inquiring minds want to know. :slow

However, if I were a betting man, the most likely scenario is that Froome never actually regains his previous form, and any such speculation will remain just that.
