Chubby Froome Innocent

8ish years ago Froome was 75.6kg: more than 8kg heavier than his current race weight. His body fat was 16.9 per cent.

A bit chubby perhaps?

Even I weigh less than that but then again I haven’t got a peak power of 540 [15 watts higher than TdF 2015] and a threshold of 420 nor a V02max of 80.2 – all of which he had in 2007.

He got good ‘cos he lost weight and sort-of maintained his pre-success abilities. NB: VO2 increased partly because of the weight loss.

If true. He’s not a cheat.
