A bit of classic Lefevere

"I followed his results in the Under 23s and we did a test with him. We knew that it was possible for him to make the podium," Lefevere told Cycling Weekly.
Great Britain has "the money, of course. We did something similar in 1996 with Mapei, now look at Fabian Cancellara, Bernhard Eisel and Cadel Evans. Now it is the Brits and the Australians.
"Mark Cavendish is also a good one, but he's going to the national British team to work for Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome!"


From here
Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

    I refuse to believe Lefevre said that.
    He went a whole paragraph without threatening to sue anyone. Has to be an impostor.

    Cancellara, Evans and Easel didn't join Mapei until the 2000s, by which time Patrick had run off to form Domo. He's talking nonsense. He lost it a few years ago IMO.
