"The first of 72 riders off recorded an impressive time which made a mockery of his ranking for the event. Kenyan Christopher Froome stopped the clock in 53.58.01, a time which kept him on top of the standings for almost an hour as the next forty-nine starters failed to better his effort!"
Mal Sawford, for Cyclingnews at the 2006 U23 Commonwealth Games.

Dave Brailsford claims this was his first glimpse of Froome, riding well on bad equipment. But by September of that year, he seemed to have a reasonably modern setup.
