Perhaps the equipment sponsors didn't want any more press from him.

God knows why they signed him at such a large price tag in the first place.
If he wanted Froome at the TdF to provide leadership to the team, he either should have put him on the TdF squad or put it in his contract that he show up to the TdF and act as a sub-D.S./inspirational leader/tactical advisor. Just not putting him on the squad and then *****ing because he's not there as a leader/mentor anyway in his free time is dumb.
Bikes: 1996 Eddy Merckx Titanium EX, 1989/90 Colnago Super(issimo?) Piu(?), 1990 Concorde Aquila(hit by car while riding), others in build queue "when I get the time"

If IPT signs Cav then their Tour de France team spots will go fast. I assume they will want past stage winners to ride. That's Simon, Houles and Woods already. Chris may not go, again. I assume he'll retire at 40 - I don't think the owner is planning on signing him after his contract expires.
