Wiggins' wife, Froome's girlfriend spar on Twitter
CHARTRES, France (AP) - Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome will share a glass of champagne during Sunday's final stage of the Tour de France to celebrate Britain's historic 1-2 finish in the world's most prestigious cycling race. Their better halves might not be up for it.
Wiggins' wife and Froome's girlfriend have been at the center of a Twitter dispute that started after Stage 11. Froome was told to wait for his leader in the ascent to the ski station of La Toussuire. That day, Froome was clearly the best, but his Sky team's race strategy forced him to stay in his support role.
Michelle Cound took to Twitter to express her disappointment at Sky's decision to fully back Wiggins in his bid to become the first British rider to win the Tour at the expense of her boyfriend. The dispute has continued since.
