"Something sort of admirable amazing medical achievements back to the virus I'm afraid now we were hearing at the top of the program about the violent demonstrators in Lebanon protesting against a lockdown of the lack of government help what kind of news will surely strike fear into any government hoping that that population will comply politely with the virus rules social distance in staying at home washing hands repeatedly they're all very well if you have running water space at home and a job that you can take time off from in many informal settlements with informal jobs as a pretty stark choice of which people are forced into money versus risk and as the restrictions coming in as a curfew as well to deal with I'm talking about Kenya at the schools a shot the BBC's David Wafula has been hearing about life in a slum in Nairobi thousands of people living in the slums hit in it'll be out already betting the brunt of going on a let us it is if many of them jobless and providing for their families has become an everyday struggle it is a good day for love and a daughter she's just given a food package bad could somebody tell these men should be able to feed her family or five for the next three or four days seasoning yeah I can see the food is enough but thankfully because sometimes you leave the baby at home you go and queue for food and you lose some the next day you try again when you get one pocket to flat there is not much you can do for a household of five people it's a challenge especially for those breast feeding lake me bubble to the left for someone in these circumstances Melinda was cooking and sending donuts in a school but since the schools are closed she's lost her only source of income when I find it because you question welcome to surely I was working in the school when the pandemic happened we had to close the school I have a seven month old baby I was depending on my business at the school to take care of me baby I haven't had the means since yesterday I come to breast feed My Baby enough as it should be you need keep going until eight PM at the time as you the government saves you to soon start distributing food to the people in the slums until then when we shows are putting together a fourth thank god shot has been distributing food to hundreds of families who want to try and get food to people if there is a lock down which we don't know yet then people still have food for ten to twelve days if there is going to be a lock down then we are already stockpiling inside more employees would you be able to do the work to the government so that they can deliver it to critical area as well AS soon dear granddaddy according to Kenya's twenty nineteen cents as revenue is just one of the ten million people living in the slums I don't know what an initiative for the food that tastes good today I am very grateful I would be able to eat today tomorrow and the day after tomorrow before he gets back to challenges but for now my children we feed it to the top one hi David with a bit of a post content from an informal settlement in the capital of Kenya Nairobi this is Newsday from the BBC world service and it's got the headlines on Tuesday with Lawrence and try trying to is to hold its annual meeting of parliament next month it's in what's being seen as a sign that its leaders believe the current of ours outbreak is largely under control and he's a grim statistic could be nineteen is now killed more Americans than the Vietnam War times all the sports news and in my little running over here says Lawrence no bait that doesn't mean I'm not allowed to go to bed it means that there is no music bed underneath my feet which I have to know because otherwise I need to know how to talk around using C. let that means you're not allowed to judge so his machine with no sports no sports music but with some sports news well kind of yes a call from the news about Lawrence nothing I've been allowed to sleep for the rest of the week Cola talking recent days has been about how and when sport might restart to most people are still concentrating on completing for instance the current football seasons when the Dutch announced the ending of that campaign at the end of last week there was consternation wasn't bad but frost took a similar decision yesterday after the country's prime minister sent big sporting events could not take place until September we don't know how they are going to sort out promotion relegation and so on but the top two divisions in that country's football I'm not going to be completed and that is an approach which has won the backing of the senior doctor in world football Michelle to hunk is the chair of FIFA's medical committee he told the BBC no one should hurry back there are a lot of arguments to say that we should not yet played competitive football and don't forget that many public authority saying that there are three basic rules first of all frequent hand washing secondly social distancing and Dudley avoid group formation well if you play competitive football I think it is very difficult to avoid social distancing that is always a direct contact football is a contact sport brings together on the field players together in the dressing room they're still better additional work but also democratic thousands of people and of course you could say we will play we've closed doors but the experience and the boss earns me that there are always groups of fans going together even in secret locations and I don't think it's the moment to do that of course the situation is different from country to country the peak is not reached at the same moment on the same basis but I think that to date we are not ready for competitive football and of course your next question will be why and then and that is perhaps the most difficult question of all because we cannot see what will happen in the coming three weeks in the coming months so my proposal is avoided playing competitive football in the coming weeks and try to be prepared for the start of a good competition next season that's ahead of FIFA's medical committee Michelle Donahoe who well the league which is perhaps closest to you coming back is the Bundesliga in Germany where football bosses have said they could get going again as early as may the nights they're waiting for the go ahead from the politicians of course but that question they had it and we showed her how to can I teach how can you play a contact sport without contact or more likely actually whether you can make sure that that contact carries as little risk as possible is one that's also being considered by the players of course I Florian star Salomon Kalou plays for Bundesliga side had to abandon he told the baby say the players aren't clear on that are you gonna play against against up one and expect to win a big game big game one in your bed a great contact you again I mean football is the welcome back you got a great contact so that's why you're needing what the rules will be so again again so my color you're talking to her baby she spoke to Africa more from him on focus on Africa later here on the baby say and if you were listening to that program or indeed sport today last night you'd have heard Algeria's African Cup of nations when I'm playing Daddy or attending us that Cameron twenty twenty one the next nations Cup should be postponed or canceled because of the continuing pandemic at caffe remember brought the tournament forward to January February because the weather conditions in Cameroon at the time it was originally scheduled for June July but with qualification still a long way from being completed Guardiola reckons that's not likely to be possible meanwhile caps president how much has announced that country to speculation he's not formally put himself in the frame for second tenure as head of Africa's football governing body says for now he's focused on the pandemic crisis and will announce any new sim to Costa presidency elections will be in a year's time and European football's governing body UEFA is still hoping to get its competitions going and French club Paris St German leaders in the French league of course said that despite the government's announcement that there would be no major sporting September they would aim to take part in the European champions league however that's constituted traveling abroad to play if necessary incidently we don't yet know what the French government announcement means for the Toyota France which of course has denied it started until the end of August France's prime minister signed yesterday big sporting events would have to wait until September so there may yet be a further delay for the tool spoke today at eighteen thirty GMT if you think you know what to do I just want to add to a new feature that you remember and Lawrence we launched yesterday complementary corner we read out complimentary I found out from a few minutes if you if you just wanted to add to my grievance that about the world service being like a good mail but also wanted to particularly thank Matthew Kenyon for his updates I have literally never been the slightest bit interested in sport but something about the infuse the item with which she talks about it makes every bulletin sound like it's the Olympics well I just I just anyone's ever said about me on the thank you very much for doing this but it's very pointed my best friend a massive global fund died unexpectedly young recently I'd like to think he would approve that I finally found it in to the world of sports down to you my future my tester well that's what we're here for wonderful stuff mobile compliments on this number plus full full seven seven eight six twenty fifty fifty five or anything actually wants it I tell myself Lawrence all my feet now we're gonna take it sing twenty cents now the current of pandemic current virus pandemic rather is highlighting south Africa's stark inequalities more than two decades after the end of apartheid is according to the country's presidents are still running poser how bad is the situation that the moment and what is the pandemic throwing up let's talk to the lawn it is a journalist with the daily voice newspaper in a township cold K. Lisa we spoke to him at the start of the crisis he joins us again now we've had this this comment from storm approaches on freedom day that is the J. oversee a public holiday marking the first democratic elections since nineteen ninety four when they first came in he says it's underscoring the lasting disparities between south Africa's rich and poor what are we seeing thank you for having me and there's a line which I live where you live yeah I'm just saying that speaks about the weather how we fought for freedom and says bye bye to you and you know quite to continue to stock on a one day and just the compass is off once they're still largely determines whether how we leave what we study where we went back and where we are careful when west that is that the only two off South Africa and the consequences of corporate account I yet it's a mind but one thing we can be fairly certain about is installed okay got its impact will be shaped by the country's inequality yeah and it's something that you love you backed up mileage bishop Desmond Tutu uses the virus is done the country a costly favor by exposing unsustainable foundations on which its bills and they must be urgently fake presumably that puts it straight from the door of civil ramaposa I'm only seeing the township's them because it is a tale of two countries isn't it if you've got money and you can self isolate fine but you know this extreme poverty that where it's impossible to do that and that's why we we in South Africa and trying to say that something is a land of have and have nots in the township well I am from where I live in from hand to mouth and during the slow times what it is because you have seen people breaking the deadlock on regulations because they have two choices are we going to sit at home and it's hard to keep us all alive and go out and risk getting infected so you know both because he's going to come from the country and that's what people have been doing have been losing their lives going out there trying to make a living it's difficult do you think the president has all five is not did you ever watch and that's a difficult to stop look listen right now over to you inequality it's because you're out of luck struck again at the moment and discovered nineteen is a trial supposing that deadlock mall which is next month the first part thank you for the update Lonnie loaded that journalist with the daily voice newspaper in that case he Lisa township in South Africa if your old don't expose yourself that's one of the rules of the pandemic at the moment Christine Chennai is taking the chance of the virus however he's ninety eight he's neighborhood doctor in Paris has been since nineteen fifty one.

"Six more times is owned it is it has been a widow. The Toyota France is Deidra. He didn't give us away. It was a mind blowing dramatic and and inspiring achievement and then we learned it was all a lie. Some breaking news now. On Lance Armstrong the global governing body of cycling has just announced moments ago it will ban Armstrong for Life Armstrong cheated his way to the top through the most sophisticated doping program ever seen but dumbing reports reveals the full extent of the reception play by Armstrong featuring sworn testimony from eleven of Armstrong's former teammates. If I guess in the show today is not just one of those former teammates nights but a key player in breaking the Mafia esque wall of silence around doping in professional cycling and helping ultimately to clean up the sport. I guess name name is Jonathan voters he wrote with Lance Armstrong and the United States. Postal Service team in nineteen ninety nine when Armstrong one is. I toured France and like most of the whistle blowers and Lance Armstrong case. Jonathan also doped in our conversation. Jonathan told me about the rise and fall of the myth surrounding Lance Armstrong success and he also told me about his own relationship with doping how his cycling dreams warped into something. Much darker has money drugs and deception and the picture and just a quick warning before we get started hearted. There's some swearing in this episode. Jonathan told me that when he was a kid he would have been more surprised than anyone to learn to do. Play a major role and a big athletic drama. For one simple reason I showed no predisposition to being athletically talented at anything at twelve years old. the kid who hates sports when they're going through elementary school and middle school. And you know it's like the kid that shows up to gym class. It's like God what are we doing today. Like dodgeball great eight. I'll be the first one that gets hit and thrown out or you know football. I can't even catch the damn thing or baseball. Whatever whatever whatever ball was involved in so no? I was horrible at that stuff. But there's one thing he was good at going fast his go kart that he would ride all around town to one day when Jonathan was at a friend's house and saw his friend's Dad's racing bike. It was so sleek so beautiful so captivating that Jonathan sold go kart and bought himself an Italian racing bike instead and very quickly he realized that the thrill of riding the bike wasn't just going fast growing faster than someone else every once in a while. You see somebody else the road on a racing bike and you know you try to pass them and then they tried to pass you back and all of a sudden. You're basically racing and I thought that was kind of fun fun In so I had a friend who had signed up for a bike race in my my buddy said well. There's this race Red Zinger your mini classic. You should sign up for it and so I did. I sign up for the race The funny thing was I had no idea that people trained is to do these races. I just thought you know you just like Oh yeah I'm gonNA raise my buddy so you just show up and you raise your buddy but I didn't realize that there was this whole like you're supposed to get in shape and that you are supposed the post of prepare for these events. I had no idea of any of that. I I didn't know that was part of it so okay I have a bike and I want to be on the race. I'll just show up. How long has the race there was? It was ten days long But the each stage was around like fifteen to twenty miles. Okay so so you show up. This is what happens. Yeah I get killed. I mean just like blown out of the water so the first race ever did. I was dead last last. What did you do? Did you have a realization at that moment. Well my realization. At that moment it wasn't you know I wish it would would have been more inspirational or whatever but but what I was thinking of that moment was man okay. It's another sport you know. I thought it was racing. I didn't think it was a sport sport and so I was I was like I don't know another one of these sports stupid sports and that it was a sport that I was breathing breathing. Hard and that these hills trying to go up were quite difficult to get up and that everyone else was going up quite a bit faster than I was here. Just like huffing empathy. And everybody's just sort of like yeah your lungs burning. Yeah no sudden that felt like a sport that felt like Oh. This is running the mile in gym class rate. No Fun okay. So not a very auspicious beginning. This is a very strange beginning to to your life story. I thought like the moment where I was like something about it. I just loved but instead you just like Oh God. This is one of these sports that I've been trying to avoid my whole life. Yeah Yeah so okay so so we do. You're the first day and then it's like okay. Then we're supposed to do the second day of the race and I just tell my parents guys this is. This is one of these sports that I hate and I'd really rather just go home and not keep doing this and and I. I really apologize. That you spent two hundred dollars for the entry feet of this thing and But you know I I I just don't think this is for me and you my dad who. He's not one of those fathers who ever really forced me to do anything. He wasn't one of those parents that was like you're GonNa be a member of debate club. Come hell or high water or whatever he just wasn't one of those pushy whatever we call them like Little Little League Dad's in so I totally thought when I said Mom Dad I want to go home that it was just going to be a foregone conclusion that we went home in for for the first time and actually the only time ever in my entire life my dad put his foot down and said nope you're GonNa race today and I said no doubt I don't WanNa race I I'm not good at this. This is just silly. I don't WanNa get last place against embarrassing. He said Nope I paid for this. You signed up for it. You committed admitted to do the full ten days. You're doing the full ten days. He just said Nope. You're not going to quit and so I didn't didn't so you've finished the next nine days of the race. Oh Yeah Yup Yup and and how are you feeling like day seven seven. Yeah I mean tired but you know. Interestingly because probably because I was so out of shape to begin the race with as the race progressed rest I was actually getting better and better relative to the other kids. I was kind of catching up to them because I I think I was like basically the race was my training. Yeah the last two or three days as I was actually starting to be competitive not to win but you know sort of kicking around in front of the race as opposed to just dragging the absolute back And how are you feeling at that point really invigorated and really excited and totally in love with the sport and you know couldn't get enough of it in one of the race to go on for another ten days that's crazy. That's a pretty abrupt turnaround over the course of days. What what was going on? I think I don't know you know I just even I. They went so poorly. I slowly was becoming like addicted to and I really do mean that. Add like going around corners fast and like cutting guys off and you know and Avoiding crashes and then Flying Down Hill and you know hammering up a hill and passing guys you know it just became a rush after after that race. Jonathan tried to get his hands on any books about cycling training that he could find he'd gone long rides after school and on weekends it became best friends with his local bike shop owner and as he was training he was also learning more and more about the professional cycling races. In Europe. I started noticing professional cycling. I started following following it which was at that point in time very difficult because this was wasn't televised the United States? And they're very minimal media coverage of cycling in the United States. And so if you could get little glimpses of what was going on in the race which in some ways actually probably made it even better for me because it became aimed this mysterious land across the ocean and and it became this career. You know this. The people were professional bike. Racers there's like people in the United States or professional football players but it was magical. They were in the Swiss Alps in the French Alps and they were riding on these roads. That had been there since the Roman times and there weren't that many images to really see what was going on so you get one image in in you come up with the whole story of what was going on in the race on your own because you had limited information and so it became like you know like Lord of the rings or something that it was like you. You went over to Europe and then you conquered conquered the races. Do you remember an image that the sort of latched onto sure you know the win. Andy Hampton won the Italia In in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight The image of him going over the past.

"To amazing Americans my guess is Danny chew had a tragedy this wife usually great culture cyclists in American history a two time winner of the grueling race across America and now after that tragedy is pumping from hand cycling still kidding is miles in and then it would go back to the early days again he hit on a little bit that first segment but that that that passion that great love affair was cycling got you to be a professional cyclist in when you say professional cyclist it back in the eighties can you tell people what that meant what what she went through is a professional cyclist yes well back rabbi I would without any big teams like with David spare the ad was on the seven eleven team I was what they call a free agent so let me via the rates of my own and try to play off the other teams do the best that I could add raisins so I took on a professional license the bank PDD five as a free agent ed by a best result of the pro was the first year they had this hundred and fifty six mile road race in Philadelphia up the better yup wall now the better your wall is about a fifty percent greater hill so although it's a steep hill it's nothing compared to the dirty does that help but I do that because that race was you know over a hundred but that I would have a good chance because back where the America was geared towards about twenty of fifty about criteria races which is just around the one mile circuits with a lot of turns so I figured by a door it's what outlast the lot of the pros that I a good race I got to the second to break away grow but I finished twelfth plays it would like the system of American the fetish this is back in nineteen eighty five this is so long ago that the professional riders the dog he would have to wear helmets back both the ride is where dot dot dot think that all of their head which help them keep Kohler the heat it was hard to deal with in Philadelphia just like it is the best part of the summer but I wanted the protection but I did what I look to VK at a hard shell also our ward a member here that is sick but I could get it was like a thick leather strap Hey I'm curious in I think listeners are to back in the eighties your professional cyclist America are you able to scratch out a living at all or you have to supplement your income well all right our lives will go away and what that meant was because I love cycle and so much I would live a lifestyle that I could afford to keep rates a lot by old by live to get by para files read free by stretching a dollar as far as I could almost every day got it restaurant the the got it expensive grocery store probe cutting my own hair so basically I did everything so that I had the back about a free tied the ride as much as I wanted I did care of if I did have a girlfriend over did get very good at that many children because I jokingly said I've been a very good Betty bicycle glad war the what bike but never a woman so that was a joke I would tell people so you're pretty professional cyclists in the early and mid eighties and then you you kind of turn this altar distance cycling thing Danny was that because you felt you were better at the longer distances is that what you kind of switched over why add up to about I had some good results but it wasn't because of the twelve players that that's very very slow I played sixteen twenty fifth at thirty of but the writers would get a better a distance so that's what I was doing so well about race after about five years well that's what I wanted to stay and fight Klay but I did know what my next step one so I did the is it a bit distance races the spread go five hundred with the five hundred mile race started Texas all I did that race but unfortunately by a headlight totally well folks should all bad I had to drop all that the two hundred fifty miles but that was a five hundred about drafting rates were you allowed to go after the people and then I did my first race across America qualifier five hundred seventy two ball we have open east up a job so New York beautiful Attar Attar on back mountains that I could I usually what that race to be the second place god by over two hours there that took like thirty two hours reading all through the night my one person support I was that was my father who go behind me and fed me and help me I did have a flat tire educated by all clap but at all the new people for people who are down to ram were at that rate you know they would let me what I had to do the rest across America that was nineteen eighty eight but it's so expensive the new ram that I actually did do rabbit till six years later until by do for because it takes so long to get a sponsor together and get your crew in line because the dealer so are also what it is that which the team members across America for the solo rates across America before there was there were ever any team wherever they live you have to port a prince of thieves so each rider rides way left the defense but we had thought about is purely a solo rates so each person had to ride three thousand miles so my eight so rand's were all solo and not not to knock the P. riders but some of the soul of yours get angry if somebody says yeah I did rabbit that they said that it we have because if some of the solo purifies team ram is just you know but this top of the solo relative your plan about doing solo and I know you did a two part the debate you will quickly find out one of W. Dow Jerry do you remember Danny first hearing about a reading about ram in it by the way folks ram is a three thousand mile race race across America west coast to east coast and you have to finish in certain time to qualify do member the first time you laid your eyes on ram or heard about it because it's a crazy race it is I like the Toyota France's Bon stop you know the solo riders sleep as little as possible yeah I first heard about it because because it was new the dark novelty of the event attracted the major sponsors whatever and started back in nineteen eighty two and by the way it's only one year older than my dirty dozen that I have about the same life like what would rand started baby too the first five wearables world ABC's wide world of sports or maybe I think was a two part segment but this back before there was no cable TV stations of the bad news he gerade eggs for the race across America and I think that's how a lot of people found out about it but I do about it through the cycle in vide so during that first rabbit nineteen eighty two I had by father Dr be out on to the route because the route passed only a hundred fifty about to buy a house with West Virginia there are actually rolled out a log side the leader who had their rates what by that lot although that for a hundred miles through the bounds of the West Virginia Baghdad they did not have the strict role letter about the writers Bob loved right beside you for long periods of time now keep in mind I was there were part of the head so it was the day after the offer made but that gave me a real first hand pays to go out right a hundred miles with the leader long haul the band way back in nineteen eighty two when I was just twenty years old the any first ram comes in nineteen ninety four in you finished fourth in that race and a lot of people that I've talked to do ram solo once and I'm never doing that like this again you came back many times after that what was it about ram that first time the jury back because I thought I could go faster you need to think about so little red which is so difficult the race is so long three thousand miles it's in part but it's impossible to simulate that distance in training so you have no idea what the ideal clipper mount is going to be for real so the first year I ended up sleeping too much I averaged about four hours of sleep every night and then the second year I slept too little about two hours of sleep a night so the third year I dialed my sleep and just write three hours a night and that's partly what helped me win that year no I don't do any sleep the first bite but start on the second night I would sleep three hours you know I keep in mind I will pull a person support grow at an RV and a a mini van which are pretty much you know with the most of the time so three hours was right for me right up until the last night you know I had enough cope with it but when I woke up I was like an hour behind the leader because he only slept two hours but I knew because I had more sleep that I could be faster and because I had over two hundred miles the catcher corner before the end and then just you know Mike right might both twins were considered close because in a race that's over two hundred miles to win by only two hours is considered a very close ram so my wind work fighting because I took the lead with two ordered bow the go did you choose my guest an amazing Americans to a man that was it in the altar cycling in nineteen ninety four did his first race across America finished fourth then he got second many one in nineteen ninety six one again in nineteen ninety nine so two time a ram winner in one of very few Americans that has that has done that more than once and it's dominated it seems these days by Europeans Danny she was my guest on amazing Americans were gonna take a break your come back and talk about we talked about the tryin to Danny's life and talk about the tragedy as well because in later years he had a bike accident that that changed his life completely is B. was paralyzed in the chest down in a bike accident we take a break come back and talk about that this is amazing Americans.

"If you want to get a free copy of the magazine to see the Economist has to offer you can get it delivered to your door by texting the word cycling two seven eight zero seven zero Richard of being reading your print copy if the Mac this week course I have line. It's an article that I hope Francois. We'll be able to talk about because it's about the price of books in France articles called value is fixed price agreement and Francis Been in place since nineteen eighty-one. We had a similar role in the U._K.. was abandoned and then the one thousand nine hundred ninety s but the agreement in France under threat from the likes of Amazon also e books subscriptions and sales of Secondhand books which night might not always be secondhand. I love the call from Franck. Restraint is out the correct pronunciation of the French Culture Minister who said on the Internet you find what you look for but only in a shop. Do you find what you are not looking for now fronts while you're an author publisher and you on a bookshop in Paris so you have a three way perspective on this this at this price agreement fries does it work. Yes sort of I mean it was a very good idea at when it's when it happened because it really kind of curbed the sales of books in supermarkets and confronts with these huge supermarkets and that was all the trend in one thousand nine hundred and nine hundred ninety s and probably without fixed price might have ruined little bookshop here in town centres now my impression is that it's it. It should probably evolved a little bit because democracy changed. Thanks to the Internet. Actually it's not even so good for little bookshops anymore because it means that even even all books you've got you can't you can't sell them at a discount price pixar expensive in France and and very a plane in their design. It depends on this various corrections. I mean you've got the halfback are about between eight. I should say between fourteen and twenty five euros and a paperback is is a lie between two Euros and twelve heroes poverty. Well the the problem with a fixed price as you say in the fact that it's a it's a little bit of a high price for the bike means that actually I think probably seventy percent of the market especially for novels these paperback by I C at my bookshop you know lots of of customers come look at the Harbach unless it's a star or or an author really like Oh cool in two in two years time Oh eighteen months time when he didn't expulsion paperback by paperback than it's yours and a new if you sell it back again on Ebay for instance it's it's no longer a new book so you can discount the book. That's actually a day old. So there's a problem there well as you can see the economist Gosh talking in the car and we travel around the Tour de France and if you'd like to sample the economist as well then text the word cycling two seven eight zero seven zero and you can have a copy delivered to your door. That's the word cycling two seven eight zero seven. I'd like to something that there is one one book. At least that's never too expensive and that the second podcast book your birthday Toyota France you know it's it's it's it's the it's the two fronts two years ago. Now the journey through cycling year that's exactly the won't and <hes> and I think actually values should go up you know <hes> three years like good wine from France because I was a child to the hero one guy I went to speak to the start this morning. Fellows was Mike Woods. You suggested in the podcast last night Lionel Gary Thomas may have found that he was responsible for the crash but and he was the first one to go down dave rails for it in the morning and said how dangerous a roads are am in this area these are the roads is coming into some at their narrow twisty some gravel on them and there was a wall and the race was really on as well and there was pretty frenetic wasn't it so it wasn't surprising to see a crash. No I'm well when you see the a little clipper of how the accident happened.

But Kittles problems seem to cause problems with his team Kittle was in the new team and was marquee signing for catoon opposite and was put in position to to win and perform well, but but just didn't seem to have it and the job I would think to to turn things around to into Patrick lefavor the to curbing train campaign. Hayes still maintains kid'll is the best in the world of all the sprinters. But but said the Katiza basically just assumed the dropping him into the team would lead to results and LeFevre said that wasn't how it worked when? Kittle was with that. They kept the pressure on him. They may impressed on him. He had to deliver. If we're were going to dedicate the team's resources to getting into the line. And you know, I think that's whether or not in a contusion may dispute, but because he clearly in not only to the knock at the results, but he never looked happy. Really the tour is completely outsource and he had already had a bad few months, but it's interesting. They obviously signed him massive signing for them. And they think we've signed the best in the world and that we need to do. And I think that probably a lot more to it. Indeed line. I think there was some confusion and a few misconceptions star lost year about one of the the problem was with Kissel in cotija a few people pointed the finger at the lead out train. And when that really wasn't issue this. She was the Kissel was no inform was not particularly fit when he started the season and never got fit. And that's been a bit of a recurring theme or something had a couple of seasons. When issues early on in the season have blighted him them for the rest of the season. So we someone who needs to really hit the ground running needs to have a mental straight away. And then he's he's very very difficult to to be. It's going to be interesting to to see how he gets on this year with a few changes every nobles come in mostly was a great German sprinter in his day. He's gonna be working alongside Kevin Poulsen Catania opposite. And then as far as you and is concerned. I mean, he's he's going to get. A bit of about about his afire. I think the Toda FRANZ lost year. Mitchelson Scott didn't make war. I think they would probably knowledge was that mistake of of announcing the previous December that he was going to ride the Toyota France, and and whether he rested on his laurels in the spring. He certainly didn't have ticket. Good results in the spring. Didn't win a lot of races..

"Madrid. In the general classification Verde seems to me that he said to us the other day, a red jersey. Another judge is not going to change his life. He seems to me to want to get that red jersey on he did. I mean, he did a quick off the finale. And you know, he suddenly Walsum definitely wasn't doing. We setting pace for Qatar to real back Simon yays until limit. Whatever gains. Yes was going to make that indicates already. I mean, one of the main features of awareness competitiveness. He likes to compete whenever he finds himself with good legs. He is not the one to let the race go away. He will always try to make do his best. Maybe try to win in this. He had a special motivation in two days. We are arriving to move his to his home region. So I am sure that he was thrilled to make it into the red years because he's that kind of person. You know that he gets very motivated when he's in front of his public, but it publicly stated. Goal is to prepare the war in Israel. So at some point, I assume that he will. Drop himself and loose all the tiny Siri to be out of tissue for DC, maybe able to help narrow container or Rita at any point, but not thinking of winning the race while I'm Richard counter passengers riding himself out of out of the picture really in terms of any kind of g. series out, but certainly a potential stage when a later on, if things don't work out for canton. Kintana look pretty okay today. I mean more than okay today. I mean he's conceded anything he was in that group looking looking perfectly good. And as we know when he when he's trying to get on the podium in a grand tour, he generally tends to be better in the third week anyway. But what do we make of lotto? Ano- JIMBO and they had yellow and black jerseys on the front. They was Simon. In there like a little interloper. But first glance, it looked like they're all the same team because the jerseys are so similar, but they clearly and you know, I don't wanna give Richard too much credit here because he's not here, but they clearly are looking at developing g c type model in the image of team sky on and the finish. I spoke to Steven Krause like, and made that point to him. Yeah, definitely already did a good to the France, and we want to continue running like they're aggressive and even maybe we are not the best in the race yachts and myself. We want to try something from the bottom to make race, Stephanie the little bit harder than it was. So yeah, that's also good for the morality guys are really from the beginning of the climate, vivid crazy for us. So these year for us and we want to continue like this, what's the climb actually like, how did it compare to other more famous climbs. Pretty regular and St. pas wind. So it wasn't a difficult flying loss. Lee set couse was very impressive over in America early this month. What did you make of his performance today? Really, really stepping job until the end. So as we could see Dan, what did you make a lot of his writing today set couse was impressive for a long long time longer than we've could have expected. Really. We did ask ourselves, how will he fare when he comes back to Europe to race here after doing well, in American, we're trying to wind up how strong level of racing in America is, but they did look, good, didn't. I am I doing this just because it was a great appearance, but perhaps the substance wasn't quite there. I don't know how to assess most importantly, we can debate the the physical merits of the performance, how hard it was to do what they did not climb with the climate in the rice. But I think what was. Encouraging haunting and impressive ambition. They showed. In a in a period in professional citing when you we hit journalists and also other riders bemoan that locker real challenge being laid down in particular to team sky, they've done it the Toyota France on the starting to do it here with the Ryder..
