'cause we always a little bit of stick for mentioning. That broke Lynch was formerly a ski jumper that very proud of that in Slovenia because Ski Jumping Ping is the number one sport probably ski jumping in football and then cycling is really coming up on. The radio is because of the success of Wroclaw skijumping being the number one so that'd be like Paul Volcker thing being our number one sport.

Different systems came through different teams different systems. uh-huh and I mean everybody is close to everywhere in Slovenia. I mean a fun driven and our the other direction I would have been in on the beak to clean I I in in Italy so yeah. It's a kind of a country of different influences. He's got an Italian influence over in the West. Gather is Croatian feeling down where I was and then sort of Austrian mountainous in the north and of course it used to be what it was. The first country to break away from Yugoslavia declare independence from Yugoslavia in the early nineties. And well I'm going to do a little dispatched from Slovenia and report back on material. Now I mean there. I mean apart from getting under the skin of Slovenian cycles. You've obviously let's see done. What were you doing there? Well I went to see Yanna Brockovich. The former discovery channel astound radio shack. And Bahrain. Morita rider rider who has been serving a suspension for an anti doping rule violation. He is returning to racing this season with Adra Mobile Bill. He's in his mid thirties now and I went to speak to him about a serious issue. Really he's well. What has he described it? Disordered eating which became an eating disorder. And I wanted to go and find out more about that. And so we had a long conversation nation in his bike shop in Nove Mesto or bike shop he co owns and that will be that interview a fringe of the podcast special. I think next week. We'll get that out that it was a really well. It's a it's a serious story a serious subject and something I didn't know much about I'm wanted took wanted to hear his side of a quite serious story and then he spoke them the source of Indians cycling boom as well didn't you yeah. Well he was the first Slovenian rider really. I make it to the very top level. He won the Dolphin in two thousand and eleven. He in two of the Franc's was ninth in two thousand twelve but an up and down career has to be said and when you hear his story the you'll realize why that was gosh Yeah he's had a he's had a rough time at times can't wait to hear that 'em about there's been racing Some of it involving a certain Slovenian that you've already mentioned I can give us a little news round up I can indeed. Yeah the Taddei Pugachev is off to a flyer isn't he. He won the avalanche. Yana an an overall ahead of Jack and tailgate can heart on the podium in I lever old ginger put him in a race on that level. I think he's no even even remote. Is I mean you all. I've been called Ginger. He's not okay. Well seen in a certain light. I'm colorblind kind of gingery. Maybe seen in a roller disco. If you wearing row tinted spectacles yeah okay. He's not all right. Okay all right well still to be achieved. The had the first podium. Well I mean unless you get reaches for the head had I between now and the Tour de France Paul Gotcha won two stages the most difficult to deal and Groan awaken of Yamba visa warming up for who knows what they season. He kind of the old man. Our bodies merged with with them naming their Tour de France team. Early and him being but Groenewegen one to sprint finishes and the other one the other sprint finish went to Fabio Yacob's who won our stage of the well to last year. LPGA not far from Valencia. What else has been having having the weather? Saudi tour two stage wins and the overall fulfill powerhouse of Bahrain. McLaren first-stage victory for Naby Honi first win in Arcadia sunset. Colors also his first win since the two thousand eighteen welter Remember that stage win came a day or two after being accused of holding onto a team car didn't and didn't they were on one of the climbs Behani back to winning white after quite a while giant Lee of Sun Web one the head son Tour in Australia and the twelve. Something caught my eye. Walls researching climate change segment or episode. Or whatever that's going to wind up being in a few weeks time the organizer of the race want to be carbon neutral by twenty twenty three. This is a week long. Stage race in the south of France is being. I think this was the the fiftieth edition is such a name that that conjures up. Early season racing. Doesn't it gloves. And leg warmers. You know in the old days there was no sight easy to Sudan under. It was a while tour of the Mediterranean. That was really that was it. That's right yeah and Well they went to be carbon neutral by twenty twenty three A. I've asked Francois Tommaso to talk to the organizer of the race about Latte carbon. Well that's IT and they were. They were no drug tests out of the race. According to Magnus Court of Education I who won the second stage. Well that seems highly irregular for race of that standing in that ranking who else one Ben O'Connor continuing. NTT's fine started. The season is this the risk factor the beyond res Factum on a meeting large slices of humble pie already this season having written off lightly impact. NTT and the final stage age. The time trial was won by Alabama Betty all of education I and Quite an important win for him. Only the second win of his professional career and the other one of course being last year's tour flounders and I gather that win being weighing quite heavily on Petiot shoulders the self. The level of expectation dictation is placed on himself as as been weighing pretty heavily so perhaps that will ease things a little bit for Betty beat court in that time trial by nine seconds and the rule was taken by Ben Wachovia Foy who had also won the Grand Prix La Marseillaise. The one day race that precedes the dosage. So the racing continues said load of stock. Coming up we'll soon be back to well to level with the YA tour which is coming up in time just a couple of bits of news from the AH while away from the racing mark conditions not being named in the Great Britain Track Whoa championship team. The world's in Berlin Later this month which basically actually end any hope. He would have hired of riding the Olympic Games for Great Britain to see our Lynne. You say Danielle. We ought to the world. Indoor cycling probably not chops for me not to travel four on stops. It reminds me of the the the bill shankly shankly quote saying that he wouldn't watch every he was a Liverpool manager and he said he wouldn't watch Everton though playing in east back garden literally Daniels approach to track cycling and team any US the continued expansion around the world of sport continues. I wonder how much of this has been prompted by. Oy Bahrain's tire with McLaren eius and Jim Ratcliffe in particular are investing in formula. One Mercedes team so Capelle crossover there unnoticed so prior to this announcement by any yesterday there was some speculation that they might be announcing the launch of a women's Women's team. was that just well way would supposition or it's not. There's strong speculation the any US an education education. I are certainly planning or hoping to launch women's teams. I think with the education. I need some extra sponsorship. Some some more funding any US. I imagine just need to write a check. I was interested to hear that the US investment in the frontier twenty million a year. We should lessen their into their cycling team much less putting into niece football club. Yeah which is It's a sort of dipping your toes in the water in the context of formula. One isn't it but yeah I wouldn't be a total surprise if there's any team next year we I went to the team for comment on this story. A few months ago at the world championships rumor remember was floating around and all they would say was. There wouldn't be a women's team in twenty twenty which left the possibility open of there being one in two thousand twenty one one of the issues with the company itself is they have gender parity when it comes to salaries in the company itself because that would have an impact own the cycling team that because a ride in the women's team would make audible tastes it. They are the team leaders. They would want wage parity with with them entertainment now. That's the next big jump for women's cycling isn't it and one of the peculiarities of that team is that actually belongs to e f does not so the the writers are in effect e F employees which is not something that can be said about a lot of other. Roy Is in other teams. Because they're they're employed by the management company here is subcontracted by the same with any any sky on the team. Lock stock the.
