Memo to riders who wear long black socks, ride carbuncular carbon frames and have electronic gears shifts:

This is what a pro should look like....

    A great interview, thanks for posting it.

    Hampsten was a very classy rider and his career came to something of an ignominious end when he joined Banesto but didn't do much. With hindsight it's very clear that EPO usage was rampant and he chose not to partake. My respect for him increased when I realised this.

    Not got time to read it at the moment, but that team kit / paint job are one of the the things that got me watching the tdf at 12, seriously!
