Snake sent me an email the other day.
Do you remember me saying something this year about the tour de france and after the protest stage about some manager saying to race their bikes or go back to the factory?
Yeah. I remember. Dude’s were getting soft. Snake found the link.
Career change, anyone?
If there was also a daily prize for hand-wringing, yesterday’s might well have gone to Omega-Pharma directeur sportif Roberto Damiani. “Riders who don’t want to race in these conditions ought to ask themselves whether they’d rather go and spend their day in a factory,” Damiani commented of Monday’s go-slow.
You know who worked in a factory painting trucks until he went pro at the ripe old age of 29? Ludo Dierckxsens. He was hard as nails.
Snake’s parting shot:
Fuck yeah. Hard man.
