A writer row, inexperienced writer and the Knicks an excellent Climber Light Dan. Even if you know he's had problems in the beginning of the tour as he said. Because we re really didn't know what to expect. An I guess love. Rogers the new at Vicksburg. Even, of course, most team and most of them at checked the cost, not all of the muchly. But but still you know checking the course and climate in the third wheel of France. Won't. Have to climb the Madelyn in the first part of the of the stage was probably. The very hard call for many many riders as we saw. Even, tape. Packet. was normally it was no actually the best clambering the student France struggle.

He points that more call bannet and we're both at the wrong end of the race in two thousand sixteen and it was after the crash on stage one in which they were both involved member for while mark of I think was writing for.

Paths, kind of twist and turn and. Markov as I remember we've touched on this in the two zero tomorrow but again, it's worth mentioning again, he's an audio diaries for us as well. Of course but. He's done such bruin for so many different sprinters. He came to Dick. Increase that from Kaytusha where he'd been the lead for Christof and Seems at the time that Chris was a bit of a fading force and you know they hadn't had all that much success. They couldn't that it's not just the loss to the whole team Cossery and was quite important today as well. They've Bob, you know the GOV fire part of the Clark as well to just keep things under control for large parts of the stage. But Markov. He's done a brilliant job for several different sponsors. And he's a great. He's a great leader. My knees agree sprints music great track crater as well, and his positioning is fantastic. That's one of the things that makes him. Not, vision they has to be in the right place and is is remarkable religion. I guess you know we don't often give lead man the there jude I remember in in Mark Com dishes heyday renshaw got lot of praises being brilliantly man and more calls in the same category I think Bennett.

"Inside defined with twenty k. just in case and they got caught out. Yes right. That's what I mean may maybe it's up could I put it? While bullshitting from Patrick Lefevere but explained of. The explanation gave. was also were to prove out professional actually the quickstep off because. They think of every. And one of the option is that the twenty case rule could be lifted because it's very hot and sunny or the pace is too high and there are many reasons why come stars in at the end of the stage and they do it very often actually lift the twenty KS rule. So just in case they do. Some real professional teams ever guy in in the last the interested in case to get to give a last minute you know. Products to the to to anyone who might need it, and as we saw yesterday I, mean the junior Lafley was not the only rider to be penalized for doing the exact same method coups was was caught and and in the past as as you probably remember Chris Room. All guys like I remember Meager Linda, rain getting penalized from the same the same thing. So it to be an old strategy tactic to to to to have some just in case to try to challenge the twenty k. rule. It and it was frank. Fully Julian's brother wasn't a who was in a quickstep. In a quick to quickstep delay handing up A. Bottle. And a lot of people remembered the incident in two thousand thirteen when to try and get around this rule Chris Room with kind of. Suffering, the hunger knock and so his teammate Richie poor took a feed from the car thinking that he would get the penalty he them handed it to Chris Room and the commerce took a dim view of that and gave Chris Room the penalty as well. I. Think if I'm remembering that correctly your frowning Richard I know I think that's right. Yeah. I'm trying to wrack my brains. Because many many of our listeners, you know m many you know. Commend some on Social Network said, Oh but why did he did on December one of his teammates to collect the the stuff and give it back to him. But as you say in the past commissaries, kick I really I think when the twenty will is. In in action in operation they they keep a very close eye on or also doing very obviously caught on camera. You know I remember I remember seeing you know given what you said about. Being, a deliberate. Strategy Hell of a risk to take when you're in the Yellow Jersey. But also. As, said, last night, I saw a sort of a silly ru I mean it's a strange sport that penalizes right as for trying to rehydrate even I'd always why they're. There is there is a hundred and forty other kilometers in which get your strategy and right? Yeah. You know it's just it's just to stop them doing in the last twenty and a couple of people have asked were why couldn't they have you know everyone could just take something from the side of the road in the last twenty K. where if you go to stage where the race is on inside the twenty and you've got an effectively another feed zone and everyone's trying to grab a bottle or jail. I'm not sure that that's that's a desirable and mountain 's you don't want to. Feeding from a car off is definitely out but beating from the roadside also, it just adds to the chaos shift the whole remember the days of our leading on. vk Does this get fed tolls and and then.

"Okay well that was a little flavor of the nineteen ninety-four Pirate Bay m a classic edition and won by Andrea Djamil. Which is another reason why we were talking about it. Yesterday wasn't done but it was rich because just a couple of days ago. Andre Schmil Sadly announced to Only so I think it was on his facebook page. That he's been suffering from cancer He's fifty seven years old now and no eating prognosis Talked about it as a as his next big battle next big race that he's going to try to win and we hope he does win. It smell was An intriguing character Particularly in the context of that ninety four pyro Bay. I'm an and people talk about the battle with Musee but as we heard in in that clip and there's a lot more to that racing a lot more that made it special and memorable than just musee versus Schmila. I mean I'm we heard that the country from the late David Duffield. When duclos-lasalle Sheila Duclos LaSalle had one previous to pay rubies punk should and Franco Ballerini punctured and those to the previous year in nineteen ninety-three? Had this incredibly close finish. I mean fact. We talked earlier about how. Close the Steve Bow And Eddie Plank was in nineteen ninety and I think it was written at the time that separates it then was thirteen millimeters and I think Duclos LaSalle ballerini eight millimeters supposedly reportedly anyway Tomato Musee Duclos LaSalle and Ballerini. They were some of the main protagonists in Nineteen ninety-four but trail really out clause to everyone road away and it was wet and it was It was sort of epic enough sense. The was a long portion of the race where there were no motorbike cameras. The any shots were from the helicopter because the most like Pilots had various problems that gone off the road in the in the mud and and so on it was a bit like when you watch it back. It's a bit like sort of following the dots if you if you follow the dots now on the transcontinental race or one of these. Ultra Endurance Cycling although you same thing I watched that yes in on you do. There are some showers sun where the landscape allows it where it's a bit like the the shot that we get a machines. Elisi am alongside the writers. There are bits where we can see Ballerini in particular he went. He had time pre hard just before the puncture and we see this beautiful show of him and site on writing across the couples. We do but as I said. Schmil was I think. They're quite clearly strongest on the day and it was it sort of victory for the underdog because he'd moved to Lotto the Belgian team Lotto Bat season The previous year on each mill had been at GB MG with Musee but had felt that he wasn't really given enough consideration. That was a Belgian team and Patrick. Lefevere was in charge. Your Museo was sort of. He's he's protege and Trail wasn't picked for milan-san Ramo and then at the end of the year trail whose various changes of nationality will probably come onto but He was writing for Moldova in the world championships in Oslo but it was widely expected until he lefavor expected. He was gonNA help Museo in the World Championships. Museo of course he was running for Belgium. Schmil didn't do that. And this compounded or lead to bad falling out and Schmil then moving to Lotto and Lotto were smaller outfit than G. B. M. G. Musee would win the tour Florida's in ninety three. He was already a big big figuring Belgium and in in the classics. And yeah the favourite. Really coming into the ninety-four Pirate Bay. He has interesting mentioned. The change of Sh- meals nationality Daniel. He obviously was a relatively light starter. when it comes to professional cycling because of course until nineteen thousand nine. He wasn't really allowed to be a professional way. Wasn't allowed to be a professional and it wasn't until one thousand nine when the Alpha loon team was was able to race professionally. It was kind of an Italian slash Russian outfit. Wasn't it and by that stage. Schmil was already twenty six and so by ninety four. He was thirty one years old and Not not the most experienced in terms of winning races at the very top level. I mean that was really the the first of a handful of really big wins that he The managed to get in his career. Yeah and you mentioned that. I'm starting PROCREATE LATE. I mean he. He was born way over on the east side of Russia. Almost I mean not very far as the crow flies from from Japan. I think he's mum was an opera singer. Anyway. The founding moved to Ukraine when he was younger and then obviously what is now Ukraine then the Soviet Union And then as the. Soviet Union from started to fall apart in late eighties. There was this idea to and I think they called it. Project Codename Project Sea serpent the Russian or the Soviet Federation. I'd come up with this plan to sort of place. Their ride is in Europe and this led to the creation of Alpha loom team. In in San Marino. I think Alfa Lum made aluminium or work with aluminium and they came to fruition and these Russians came over and they couldn't communicate with the Italians and there was even a story I think in the first year nineteen before one thousand nine hundred. Schmil himself and one other ride got in trouble because they came back to the team hotel Through the window with sort of eight o'clock in the morning When the rest of the team were at breakfast and they've been out all night sort of sampling the delights of wherever they were they were. I'm somewhere on the Adriatic Coast Rimini or so and you know. They got a bit of a bad reputation. Some of those guys being playboys for wanting to to sort of taken embrace everything though the West had to offer schmil certainly In in a very short space of time got his act together and became known. It's really sort of discipline. Hard ride And you know the the rivalry musee was really built up. I think in the Belgian Press Schmila. We said the move was made of it than than what was actually going on on the road and on a personal level between him and Museo but he did always used to say that he had he kept up a poster of Museo on on the wall in his garage and he would use it to motivate himself and This it was a life size poster and when he was to- trainer particularly when it was outside and he would sort of imagine being classics and he would imagine writing against Musee. When you later move past this was when he was living in Belgium and he moved house and went to Italy late God where longtime he took the poster with him and put it up and he's guarantee Again but when I think of Schmil I also think of Jeff Brockovich. Did you guys ever did either of you have come and Gone With Jeff Brooklyn though Napalm. Well yeah as a long term sports director a lotto suit all and passed away about this time last year. Correct And he he was one of these rare diet sports who had never been a ride himself. He'd been a cycling fanatic growing up in the sixties in Belgium. And he used to brag become a sporty for the age of fifteen with some sort of local club that he'd become involved with and he moved through I'm also teams and made his life made his job. He was a real one of these institutions of of Belgian cycling. Big Guy Big Whitehead Guy. Easter Pudgy. Kind of But very tall E- kind of reminded me of the state of marshmallow month from ghostbusters and then he had very memorable not in a particularly good way. Unchain handshake was kind of like trying to grasp An uncooked quail. Or Partridge was you. Didn't you didn't really was very fleshy but it was enough remove. Didn't really know how to how to get your hands around it. Yeah Quayle's after social distancing we're GONNA have handshakes with Daniel. They're on their own some very memorable hunting so always remember and I think I tweeted about this when he died. But Raymond Poulidor an extraordinary comes very stubby huge fingers and short fingers but yeah. I really feel very strong firm handshake. But that wasn't Jeff Brockville told Jeff. Brockovich was not a particularly pleasant handshake but as a as a young as a young journalist around two thousand one two thousand and two. I used to speak to you know. Racism struck me. But what I what I didn't realize at that point was what is sort of sage. He was in Belgian cycling and he was a lot of for many years and then he was off so highly by Ram truck male. Who WAS INVOLVED Katusha later and also Robbie McEwen who's involved Cotija took. They brought him on board there but they as I say he was the Yoda Guru figuring Belgian cycling. And I remember I'm there's another another real authority on Belgian. Cycling is all colleague Hugo Cool vits this unmistakable. East coach small Hugo anyways so bottle top round glasses but quite dark skinned Mexican but he. He is paying attention mistake intention. Great character fantastic character. Anyway I was going to. I think it was a race or some kind of job interview a few years ago in Belgium and discuss arrangements with Hugo and he'd very kindly offered to let me stay his house when I arrived and I was getting in. I think probably on the Eurostar quite late one evening and he was. GonNa pick me up from from the train station. I think probably volume or something like that and anywhere going. Hugo's car and he's a Freebie attention. I must call Jeff and I said what would you mean what you mean? And he gave me no context. No there was no preamble leading. Just start dialing this number anyway. Oh then I heard for the next fifteen minutes as as you do when you listen to. Belgium's talk about cycling. We just a series of grunts Jeff Buddha and this went on and on but I just kept hearing you know couple of words I could make out. I could make the names of riders and then he kept saying Murska mosquito and the voice on the other end anyway the call ended and I said you go what was that and he goes is Jeff as a what do you mean Jeff Jeff Brockovich. I call him every night. And this was about twenty ten at night and you could tell. Jeff Rockefeller was in a horizontal position. He was lying down and then and I said what you find him every night when he's in bed of course and I must say I said what what four and he says everything. Jeff you pay attention. You need to Jaffe knows everything that's happening in cycling and about this Michika what was I just wife and this is what so you. You have twenty minute conversation about the current affairs in professional cycling at twenty ten in the evening. Meanwhile he was his wife was was lying next to of course freebies and I'll never forget this but then I started to probe and interrogate. Hugh goes to try and understand. Just you know how how this had happened. The Jeff breakout become this sort of totemic figure in Belgian cycling. Explain the you're such such was the regarding which Geoff Brock was held by the Diet sportifs and and ride is the day before the tour Flanders. Every year there was almost queue outside Jeff. Brockville's House of Director sportifs. There would visit Jeff home and he would sort of liquids finger and stick it in the air and say Right Tomorrow Cancer Laura Tax with fifteen kilometers ago. Tomorrow Heyman is in the move with devulder and they would all sort of nod solemnly and go off and come up with their tactics for the tour flaunt is based on what Jeff Brockovich. I'm not sure how we moves from the one thousand nine hundred four pirate bay. Who's very entertaining? Well Well Brakha. That was I mean he Trail was like a son for him. I mean I should also add. That Schmil was probably the most intimidating guy to interview. I've ever had the experience of interviewing I interviewed him when he was the CA- Tujia manager and two thousand nine. They they ripening their service corps somewhere near Lake Garda and I was doing a big feature with pots auto people of course and we. We had lunch. This Italian and your Makharov was there and anyway I had lunch with her and then I got so twenty minutes of trail afterwards and for twenty minutes. He did not look me in the eye. Once I'd like to know Daniel is who if anybody has replaced Brockovich I mean who am I. Who's in that rule now in the thousands? Who does go curves call every night? I'd love tonight. I'm sure he misses him. Mrs Those because I should also add that. I did establish what this Musica was. We'll miss go was Jeff Jeff Brockville's wife but Mika.

There isn't really a sprinter <hes> that could lay claim to that. There's quite a broad base of very good sprinters but no kind of one outstanding right at one outstanding sprinter who really really could have said for a couple of years that he was on the planet with marcel kissel the subject of our first kilometer zero of this wealth ice on you're not racing here of course because he it has announced his retirement but he'd kick off his <hes> grandeur sprinting career with victory in the twenty eleven welter so we spoke to a few of his former teammates and also his former team boss patrick lefevere about kittle episode.

Let's just hear a quick word from the runner up today with tones of tricks sigfredo and he's in no doubt that sam bennett is in a very rich vein going forward. I think in the end i have to be happier. I think it's clear already in the being monk tudor banisters the fastest sprinter at the moment and we did a great job with the team <hes> john brought me really really well into last kilometer sprint benetton just faster than everybody. I think <hes> so i'm a bit disappointed that i couldn't finish off the great leader john but in the end i think i have to be also realistic and see that bennett as the fastest <hes> so we may be have to hope he is one day in the worst position than than normally the speed was just very high it was expected it would be a very hectic finish and <hes> with all excuse we have a great great guy to bring us to the last kilometer but i lost him about one and a half to go but suddenly i found the job on the right side inside the last kilometre on he went fool and i was a great great lead out.

If you can win those two you can win the tour Flanders, the one maybe that the question Mark over would be pyro bite on your your stretch they can win but the win to in this west the west where the peer reviewed studies that prove. Pretty bad one Lombardia and two of London's. Lots more riders have won those two races than of one power Rubai on a huge number in recent years. I mean, I can mckanie ball today is one that comes to mind, but not too many recent years, but physically surely, well, if you can win Melanson Raimo, you can you does that no give you a chance Lombardi or Ila Madi too. I think you know, case he cannon probably will win Lombardia some point but pyro bay this might go down the same route. As my quick off ski forests slow twitch muscle fibers, which gone away. Yeah, I'm lying. Honestly, weighs sixty two. Kilos? Did we say cheeky Lewis has anyone that light ever even close to winning pyro bay? I would suggest not. If anyone in the lost the two years underneath seventy kilos as one prior by. I think in fact, I think we've looked this up before we've tried to establish this before. When was that? Benotti? No, not seventy kilos. Surely he was higher by sixty eight. Kyw? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, there's some beefy older is on that list, isn't that? But as I k. Yeah. It would take it was a stretch thing L affiliate could win pay Rubai. But in not team, you wouldn't rule out. The impossible surely actually says on Wikipedia Iino was sixty two kilos.

"Your loan Scottish historical figures again, and he's making his debut for two curling quickstep the welter dissent one in Argentina. And it's difficult to know what to expect in this first year. And also, I suppose the big question is is it too young to be turning professional at world level. And that was one of the questions is asking people to the current quickstep press launch Patrick Lefevere made the point he's such an obvious talent is they hadn't signed him. Somebody else would have done and said job to get in and sign riders. And it's their responsibility to look after him and make sure that the pressure doesn't build too much. But of course, we know that in Belgium pressure goes with the territory, doesn't it that such a history the press, you know, that always draw the comparisons. Will he be the new Eddy Merckx it starts almost before? He's turned to pedal, and I suppose watching over the Aussies. Zain the launch of a clothing range by some of his fans with gold leaf lettering and logo perhaps people getting carried away on his behalf rather than him himself. Getting carried away an interesting character because of the talent he has. But also as a child he was a very promising footballer. He was on the books and elect Belgian club and also PS from before going back to under lectern, then discovering cycling and really becoming very good at it very very quickly and almost immediately on quick steps radar. I didn't actually speak to vent oppo at the press launch. He was did a lot of TV and then kind of spirited away little bit. But I did speak to Tim the clerk who anyone who's watch the grand tours. We'll have seen to clerk on the front of the peleton for our after our one of the real world courses who chase down the breakaway. When none of the other teams want to help to set up a state win loss. Year for either VR, knee or. Area or whoever and the clerk will be one of the more mature more experienced figures, who will I guess be mentoring event Opole. So I asked him what kind of pressures are going to be on an eighteen year old nearly nineteen year old as he gets to grips with the world tour. Normally, I would say let it wait a little bit. But we also have a saying what what's what is good comes quickly. And I think he's for sure physically ready. I think to ride it, right? I think everybody can say he's an exceptional talent thing. There is no nobody place to let him develop an here on the team. I think we all. Our duty to to make to make him as a as as good as possible. So it will will take a while. But I think he for sure has has it in. There were a lot of guys that were really big talented in any youth. But I think we don't have a we have not seen such thing in a long time in Belgium. What was he doing before he was cycling? He was playing soccer. So I'm thinking was also really good. But I think he's gonna be even better in in cycling, for sure I I already said him that a lot of times that when I was eighteen for sure I was also drinking beer a lot more than I was studying..

"Indeed. So please send us your questions. Most of the questions we are about people's own nutrition. But if you wanna ask a question or even for the professionals, we can endeavour to get those questions answered well by a professional writer, so yeah, if you've got any questions at all just send them in. Now, Lionel you're in Spain last last week on early Spanish holiday for you in the south of Spain and copy at lovely copy. What did you what did you learn? Decoding comp land. Lots of things really. There's obviously been a rebranding of the team with a new sponsor coming into coning quick steps. Move back down to the the second sponsor slot, which well their association with cycling back to nine thousand nine hundred nine they were the co sponsor of the my team that Patrick Lefevere managed in one thousand nine hundred nine then they when Lefevere left and set up his own team. Quick step were the sponsor. They had a couple of years as secondary sponsor when a megaphone an ethics with title sponsor. And now that back in second slot. Patrick lefebvre's. He spent a lot of last year talking about the funding gap that he had knowing that quickstep was stepping down to the coast, bro. They still get some funding from that. The check kazillionaire. Denic Bokola, but not as significant as it has been in the past. And so they needed an additional sponsor and to Kern and came in pretty late in the day and not meant that few riders left. The team most notably under cavalier who went to you a team member basically to expensive for for current quickstep to Cape similar story with Nikki Terpstra who won the tour of Flanders lefavor would have liked to have kept him. But basically didn't have the budget to do. So when Direct Energy made an offer LeFevre said to terms or were you better take it because I don't want you to hold against me the opportunity slips boy because you any guarantees. I mean, not just be smart management. Terpstra is getting on a bit of just being the time to let him go and that a touch of the Alex Ferguson's about the favors, and that you know, he he's been there. So long running that team that you know, he's had generations of right? The the emphasis of the team is a be on winning winning the classics winning lots of stages never really gone for challenging in the grand tours may will change a little bit. With emergence of 'enrich. Massive course, a second in the well to last year, and we'll be talking the tour de France with very big personal ambitions this year that they believes he can win it on his debut, which would be a remarkable result. But they've never really had a great impact at the grand tours Lefevere's team lost match shagman who's going to one hundred grow. But the team still packed with Reuters can win an awful of experience last year. They went to seventy three races Philip show bat is still in the team. The the old man of team still harboring dreams of winning old of the monuments. Not sure how realistic that is. But for the couple classics if you're bad eve Lampe who won two of London. The last two years that set an XT. Of course, and Bob young who's will be having a go at the couple kasichs for the first time in this team's colors, laced them for the sprint cycle. Elliott Viana who already off them mall they season and Scotland's finest Alvarado and for the Auden, and I guess the the front shooting elephants. And and that's you know, out of it. He's going to win the tool, but he's certainly being French get some publicity. He's state winning potential and between you and Allah Philly like a presence in in the classics. Well, they really go all the bases covered. The on the management front a little bit of a region because I have to plug the hole will be left by Braun home. Who isn't quite retiring. But stepping back significantly gather around about fifty rice dice sports direct to this year, but most likely won't do any of the grand tour. So I understand given bone Belgian. Who? The two so the rider, but he will be in the team at the tour de France..

"He was very much in the news this week wasn't he? Because they have arguably the beast piece of news of the week part from Lumbini was quickstep unveiling project. I'm very new sponsor for next year, an rich that sponsor is called the curling curling. Yes, indeed can't wait to see what the quick step writers like next year and control in Hong Kong because the hammer series is all about reaching the audience isn't a. It seems to have got bogged down of complexity when two of the quick set writers streets veterans and Fabio yacob's punctured rejoined the race. So they were offensively lot, Diane, but kind on winning points. This was only discovered. Off the race. So they were relegated quickstep from the victory l. sign a very complicated mention, Scott won the hammer chase. They won the the race overall with quickstep floors. Second bore Hans Groer in third. So that was the hammer series. We had the corner, the national in France, sealed grand prix, the Nacion and in the corner Damasio. Well, I was surprised that Vincenza Nibley went straight from Lombardy to right there. Why did he do not? He was eighth. Why do you suppose it might've been rich? I know as a strange one would imagine there was some kind of incentive of some description. I don't know. Why are you suggest. He's been greased not just for the love of it for some reason, finishing two places ahead of him Silva chevelle in his final race before he retires the racers on by Martin tough Manson is not quite the race at once was the criminal SEO in the women's race. All sky out was the winner with a Emma Cecile north guard yoga nsen, then second, Audrey cord on regard in third. So that's pretty much the racing, as you mentioned, quickstep have a new sponsor. We did. I include that in last week's news. It was slotted in later on, obviously, big news and big side relief for Patrick Lefevere and everybody quickstep who will not be able to apparently keep Fernando Gaviria an 'enrich mass among others. Although some UAE ATM as we're recording now at the time of going to press what we don't get pressed, we go to the studio and the mixing lab. They are still very, very confident signing, very. So it would not shock me at all. If he left quickstep. A community around the world. Stories and films with the most compelling characters, the world's finest apparel. Explore the world of cycling with Rafeh very much indeed to our headline sponsor Rafeh. We've already covered the Rafeh ride disgrace myself on Las week. I'm gonna go by next year. Maybe joined by Daniel and Lionel who knows Simon trim the Rafeh finer Viking to see Daniel Lionel on a bike. Some point just FYI I Tanya, so we'll work enough for natio- we'll we'll go back and give a recount of ourselves thing. We clue lost the news Rafeh oversee joining forces education. I e af education, I and you know, quite a lot buzz around the alternative calendar that they're going to be pursuing. In addition to the world calendar with some writers doing races, the are literally off the beaten track and a little bit different. Tom, southern, as a mentioned was on the the right last week, Tim, a little bit by that. And you know, it's quite a lot of excitement. It's it's mold breaking. I'm, we're going to pull it out with interest and. Find ties in nicely with a new podcast series that we're going to be producing come in very, very soon. It did.

"Lastly, I mean, and this up another level of discussion about the kind of the hypocrisy and blind spots. But I guess we all have the media to the fines will get with you in some way. You know, quickstep an extract me talking to Patrick Lefevere this week about on Shamanee. I mean, let's not forget LeFevre in quickstep. Sign Risha ver- on after his doping ban or suspension after he's confession and rerun was a still cheered and everyone waves are everyone wants a photograph. When he's here on the tour. So it's kind of it's kind of strange really, but that's just human nitric as people have their favorites, people are willing to overlook certain things and think, well, bygones a by going. And when it comes to others than not so willing to overlook, but it's not just any kind of suspicion or teams. It makes some unpopular it's the way they right. And I think there's this question is become very person one this week as they as they home in on a winning. The tour with a third writer, and the team sky era began in two thousand twelve at the two thousand eleven to our one by Cadel Evans seems like a long long time ago, and that gives you a sense of just how long this dominance is now has lost it and the way that team sky ride the way that they suffocate the race, the way that they right at the front in the mountains on on others off attacking. It's. It's not a great spectacle on. It doesn't lead to Nestle, exciting racing, you know, we saw fantastic stage the Jiro and free matai when he had to when the circumstances were very different thoughts, kind of what we want to see 'em. But with the the, the strength in numbers sky have in these mountain stages, we don't get an, and so there's. A bit of a crisis. You know, in the third of France by how high to hide to make exciting. Again, when one team has such a stranglehold on the race, I, I understand that you know the team sky fans not understanding why their team are hated, but I go on with football analogy, likes the terminal to it and football, you know, and it's unfair there. The Germans the, you know, Germany as our everybody's favorite most hated team at south of Germany. What? Why is that? While I dunno, maybe that's the why jersey or something. Cycling.

"Chops. My name is yon and I'm from Prague the Czech Republic much has been made of the hatred directed a team sky for its dominance, but it's not even close to the most successful team in the peleton with fifty one wins and counting and more grand tour stage wins than any other team. How does quickstep avoid the ir? That is so verily directed at team sky. It can't be just the freemen case because all skies riders are catching heat. Why's Isla? Felipe feted while Thomas is booed. Thanks, I'll hang up and listen. Well, that's a, that's an excellent question as well. Quickstep either their success on all fronts has been remarkable. I remember when we were in the middle of their their incredible classes come pain. We Daniel especially talked about how they would fare when it came to the grand Thurs they might, you know, really struggle because the the lineup has changed this year. They lost someone like Don Martin, for example, to giving them a real presence. In the grand Thurs, but the Jiro Jiro on the tour. They have had fun tastic grand through as well. I mean, Vivianne the the Jiro with stage wins and points classification. And here the two Julian Felipe has been one of the stars of the race. So they've not been contesting for the overall wins in these races. They have been incredibly successful as well. Yet they certainly their popular team. They don't get reaction that team sky. Got. Tell you what the in my opinion. I remember the days quickstep he's has been around for ever. I mean, there were pay of non Patrick Lefevere in the in the sport for thirty years, and I can tell you in the days of my pay when they were always winning Mary ruby every year with the team tactics were very questionable at the time with with the Bortolami and guys like this, I can tell you they were really hated in the verge and they're hated by the Belgian while sometimes Belgian public even. But it's it's, it's been a long time ago. Now, nowadays belong to the almost to the, you know, to the tradition of cycling, there's always been around and so we know where they come from. They're, they're, they're almost that their company culture is known and accepted the different with Tim sky. They came from nowhere saying they would win everything and win the to the front within five years and coming from the where all of a sudden they do that, and it looks, you know. In lots of of course, people are skeptical about it. I make an analogy from Tim, Tim scour and two thousand eight. I was at the Beijing Olympics. You were there Richard and Julia predator. The Reuters correspondent in the car with us to was there as well. And there was a kind of. Incomprehension from the the, the, the, the rivals of the British cycling, the British cycling team about how the British were doing it because off, you know, in between Olympics the French, for instance, where we're winning all were attached to titles in sprints and on the day of the Olympics got absolutely crushed, and it was a kind of, you know, this belief of what was happening. They couldn't understand it. And the fact that this dominance coming from nowhere is is to them unexplainable. We know why quickstep when they've always done is Barry Roberta tour Flanders they want scores of these races, so it's kind of accepting, but that all of a sudden someone comes and says, we're going to win the tour and do it, and it with every year, of course it creates creates septicemia in the same creates hatred. I think that's the problem. Dominance as nothing new. I think that you know multi with Eddie Merck's used to -absolutely dominate, Merck's used to win everything. He's teammates. You pick up stage wins as well in the eighties while we know about Levy, Levy, Claire, you know and loaned well, limo Nino first and second in nineteen eighty six..
